Dado Rail

Dado rails, also known as chair rails, are a type of interior moldings that is installed on walls at a height of approximately 1/3 of the wall’s height. They are primarily decorative and were originally designed to protect walls from the backs of chairs and other furniture.

Dado rails can be made from a variety of materials, including wood, plaster, and composite materials. They come in a range of styles and designs, from simple and minimalist to ornate and highly detailed. Some dado rails are designed to match other types of moldings in a room, such as baseboards and crown moldings.

In addition to their decorative function, dado rails can also serve practical purposes. For example, they can be used to visually divide a large wall into separate sections or to create a focal point for artwork or other decorative elements.

Installation of dado rails typically involves measuring and marking the height of the rail, cutting it to size, and then affixing it to the wall using screws or adhesive. Some dado rails are designed to be installed with a small gap between the rail and the wall, which can be filled with caulk or other finishing materials.

Overall, dado rails are a versatile and attractive addition to any interior space, and they can add both visual interest and practical functionality to a room.
