What Houzz contributors are saying:
Decide on dado railsIf you’re a real purist, or are renovating a listed property like this Bath home, then it’s important to think about dado rails. However, if you prefer your walls to be uncluttered, this is one piece of detailing it’s probably ok not to reinstate – it’s better to have a beautiful cornice and skirting board. The original purpose of dado rails was to stop chairs from damaging the walls, so in a modern home with soft sofas and armchairs, they can be somewhat superfluous. If you decide to reinstate dado rails, consider having them installed slightly lower than tradition dictates, so your ceiling appears higher. The position of the dado rails in this beautiful living room is just above the seating level, so the walls stretch out to the ceiling and give a feeling of height.
