I'm remodeling my guest bathroom and there is an outside corner that
is rounded (in fact all the outside corners in my house are rounded)
I'm installing beadboard wainscoting in the bathroom and was wondering
how I handle the rounded corner issue.
I'm using MDF paneling...each panel is roughly 6 inches wide.
I know how to install base molding on rounded corners (22.5 miter
How do I do this for paneling?
I assume you are talking about bullnose corners.
You can make the same miter cuts on the wainscot, base, and cap
As an alternative you may want to consider something like this:

I'd be inclined to cut the "panels" into individual "boards" and create a
ship lap. You may need double the materials due to the waste but making the
curve with individual boards shouldn't be a problem.
This can be a guessing game to get it right and MDF has some
restrictions. Kurf the backside. If the curve is still too sharp,
ie, your panel breaks you will need to make deeper kurfs and/or
wet/steam the backside of the panel (an old steam iron may work.
However, wetting may not work well with MDF.
