beadboard/chair rail

goughbarDecember 3, 2012
Just purchased a condo and would like to use beadboard. One of the walls has a pass through to the kitchen. My question is about the finished height.

The standard height for a chair rail is 30"-36" .If this is a smaller space I would go with the lesser dimension.

Traditionally, beadboard runs 32" above the baseboard, so figure a finished height of about 36" (that's how precut beadboards are sold). But--to make it look more professional, align the top with the pass through height. If that's more than 36" or so, you'll have to buy 8' stock and cut it.
