Help--wainscoting on stairs?
I installed faux wainscoting in my dining room using picture frame moulding below the chair rail some time ago and it came out great. Now I'm considering doing the same for the stairs but I'm having trouble figuring out just high high the top rail (same as chair rail) should be. Should it be 36" from the edge of each step if measuring vertically or more? The railing on the open side of the stairs is about 35" tail from the front edge of each step. I've looked at pictures and have seen wainscoting at the same height and some cases even higher. I've got a "how-to" book of moulding from Lowe's that explains everything "once" you've determined the height of the top rail.
Does anyone have this wall treatment? High high is the top edge from the front of each step is yours?
Thanks in advance,
