I decided to install wall paneling in my stairwell to the basement.
Is there a trick to making 4 x 8 foot panels work here. The problem
is that when you cut the panel at the angle required to butt up to the
ceiling, you need more than 8 foot to the floor. Should I cut thee
pieces to follow the railing with moulding. I was trying to avoid
horizontal or diagonal moulding.
Well, you just ruled out the two most common solutions,
which are, run molding either along at floor level or
mount the railing to a separator board. Your remaining
choices are, buy really expensive 10' paneling,
slice the paneling lengthwise into (probably three) strips
narrow enough to fit, live with exposed butt-seams, or do
something other than panelling in the stairwell.
