The wainscoting is consisted of boards which are installed along the wall’s portion vertically. And for determining the wainscoting height will depend on everyone’s personal preference as well as the wall’s height itself. But just in case you want to know the standard height of the wainscoting, it is between 30 – 36 inches. But even though that is the standard one, you should consider the walls’ height when determining it.

Solid wood is the material which is used for creating the traditional wainscoting panels. But there is also another popular look which is painted white bead board.

When calculating the wainscoting’s height there is one main rule which is to get the ceiling’s height divided by three. From that, we will find the height of the wainscoting. But as like I have mentioned about, the height might be based on everyone’s preferences. If you apply the wainscoting too high, it will make the wall looks too short, and vice versa. So, the best way is to get the ideal height by dividing the height of the ceiling by three. The baseboards’ height also should be an important consideration when determining the wainscoting’s height. Or if you are really confused installing it, you can hire some pros for getting the job done without bothering yourself.
