Chair Rails, Wally and Floora Say:
Did you know that the term "Chair Rail" came into use by the Shakers? They installed railings to hang chairs from while cleaning floors. Little did they know that chair rail moulding also protects walls from damage. Chair rail creates a buffer between the wall and any moving object.
Thank you for the history lesson, Wally.
Chair rail moulding adds an elegant and finished touch to any space. For best results, you will want to install chair rail at between 28-32 inches off the ground. If traditional moulding, such as Johnsonite Millwork Chair Rail, is not what you are looking for, consider using a contemporary alternative like Koffler Sales' Vinyl Chair Railing. You can choose from over 50 colors and whether you want aluminum retainers or EZ Clip installation. With such a wide selection, you will be able to find the perfect chair rail moulding for wall protection to match any interior design.
