In my excitement to install trim in one of our guest bedrooms, I didn't take into consideration the height of the window...so I need some advice.
Here's the chair rail along the side. It's 33 1/2" above the floor.
Here's where the rail will meet the window....
My plan is to add a board below the window casing to extend it about 1/2" below where the bottom of the chair rail will be. That way, the bottom of the chair rail and the bottom of the window casing will not be just a long single line. I don't think that would look good, but a break in the line, with the window extending even a bit below, would be more appealing.
I will have the same problem with the master bedroom window, but I haven't put up any chair rail yet.... I was thinking of installing the rail to 38" above the floor, and I should have about 1" of window below the rail. I think this would look better on the 16' long wall with the window in this room.
What do you guys think? Any advice would really help.
