i am wanting to put back a picture rail but am unsure as to the correct
distance from the plaster coving to the rail.
the walls seem to have an old line which is around 40cm but in another room
the rail is at around 27cm.
The top of my picture rails is level with the top of the windows.
This is 12" below an 8'6" ceiling, 1910 house. It's the same distance
below the ceiling in the rooms with plaster coving, and those without.
It's quite a bit higher than the tops of the doors, and runs across
over doorways. I think that being level with the tops of the doors
might be more appropriate in a more recent house.
I have replaced it (it was missing when I bought the house), but I put
it back at the original height, which was clearly visible after the
more recent wallpaper had been stripped off.
I should have said it is a turn of the century house. Think i put it at same
height as earlier room. (not done by me).
cannot go above windows as they go all the way up to the coving. will be
above door by around 4"
