Re: choosing a beadboard/wainscoting height(h)...
Bon jour....me again.
My friends: Are there general principals about how high wainscoting or beadboard go up a wall? This is for an outbuilding writing studio...not a kitchen or bathroom.
I'm using long individual slats, not prefab panels, and want to put them up horizontaly for a kind of casual, farmhouse look. 4 of the tongue-and-groove slats equal one foot.
What formula would one use to find heights that fall in "the ****en ratio," which sounds like some good heights to start out with exploring? ((EDIT: Weird how it won't let me type that...)
If the top of the wall is at 7'9" (before it goes into beams and a pitched ceiling, which I expect will make the wall look taller), how do I calculate some heights for "the ****en ratio" within that 7'9"? (Outlet in pic will be moved)
Thanks for any thoughts...or a link to another thread if this has been discussed to death over the years!
