Chair Rail Height?

Answer

A chair rail is a moulding on walls to prevent chairs rubbing on them. Generally , the height of the railing from the floor is a third that of the ceiling from the floor (usually between 32 and 40 inches above the floor). The height of the chair rail may vary as result of the height of the ceiling, the height of the chairs themselves as well as other architectural factors in a room.

Chair rail was originally intended as a wall protection against the chairs back that can scratch it, but now it is mostly a symbol of elegance and class, of refinement and style. Use a chalk to mark the right height for your chair rail. Usually that is between 30 and 36 inches (75-90cm), but you can raise it more for an enhanced look.
