are some decorative accents in contemporary homes that originally served a
functional purpose, such as horizontal level molding called chair rails. Chair
rails, or chair rail molding is installed along walls, mostly in dining rooms,
but can be placed in other rooms of the home as well. Especially since today,
they are used mainly for their decorative attractiveness. Rumor has it that the
original use for chair rails was to shield the backs of conventional chairs
from damaging plaster on walls.
rails are frequently utilized in combination with another previous functional
but now mostly decorative wall accent called wainscoting. Wainscoting features
fine lines and exact measurements that are utilized when installing chair
rails. However, the difference is that wainscoting features large panels
installed in lower, and sometimes higher, segments of a wall, where chair rails
are placed around 30 to 36 inches from the floor. Today, homeowners choose to
install chair rails minus any wainscoting, leaving one color, or painting the
lower half of the wall a contrasting color to replicate wainscoting.
chair rails is not too difficult as long as you have the correct measurements.
This is the most important step before mounting chair rails on your wall. Your
DIY project can easily turn into a disaster if you must continuously place, and
remove your chair rails due to improper measurements. You will need basic
woodworking equipment and a comprehension of the angled-cuts and seams linked
to molding installation. Chair rails frequently incorporate several kinds of
molding, combined to produce an attractive railing. If your wall is very long
and straight, you may be required to cut several sections of chair rail molding
to stretch the complete length of the wall.
traditional rules of architecture are essential to deciding the correct size
and placement of moldings in a room. Nonetheless, many decorators still believe
that chair rails should only be a particular height from the floor. For
example, you can find in colonial rooms with 10ft ceilings chair rails 30 from
the floor. In addition, there are a few 18th century photos
displaying chair rails at 24 inches from the floor. However, today few homes
are built with 10ft ceilings, and therefore, the standard proportion is 30 to
36 from the floor. In fact, some report that traditionally, chair rails
started out very low from the floor.
decorators advise purchasing a minimum of 10% -15% more material than you
require in case of slip-ups. Either chair moldings can be miter cut to connect
corners, or corner-blocks can be fitted to permit straight butt joints. A chair
rail also adds a striking appearance to wallpaper. The chair rails can assist
with the shift from plaster or wood to wallpaper. In addition, wallpaper is
fragile; therefore, chair rails will help guard against tearing and scratching.
Even though the original purpose for chair rails has all but disappeared, chair
rail molding is still lovely to look at and adds an aesthetic appeal to any
