This time facing the 1 inch thick end towards the floor to perfectly fit together with the board and batten. Mine measure 34″ from the top of the baseboard to the top of the chair rail. And this is no different.

This is a really popular style that you will see used on most homes. Decide how high up your wall you want your board and batten to go.
