Picture frame moldings
 
http://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/07/29/y3y5usub.jpg

I'm starting to layout my picture frame molding design/chair rail. The rail will be mounted on 4 1/4" backer. Is it ok to do vertical box in corner, the horizontal under window, then vertical, etc? Or should all boxes be the same height and wrap under and around window? The wall is symmetrical.

8' ceilings, 7" baseboard and chair rail will start at 33.5". Thanks.

lay out the long walls first to get a similar size in width for that room and then try and make that size work either side of the window on that wall. the panels under window need to be horizontal and make them sized to match outside of window trim casing so they look in line with window.

for panel spacing about 3" up from base board and 3" below chair works for horizontal spacing with vertical spacing 3 1/4" to 5" spacing between panels on layout

edit... for top of panel make panels below window about 2" down below trim skirt board( the sideways trim under window).

There sure is a lot of math to this.

The long left wall is 127". I'm thinking 5 frames 18.75"x 30", 3.7" horizontal spacing with 3" vertical spacing. Only one outlet so this works fine.

The opposing wall has one window centered. 65" of wall, 42.25" window / trim, 65" wall. If I narrowed the squares down to 27.25" I could get 2 on either side of the window maintaining the same spacing, with one long one under the window. Is changing the frame ratio a no-no?

And I completely forgot there was a radiator, so that makes it easy, just 4 frames for this wall.

if you change the square size down to 27.25 then make that size everywhere and increase vertical spacing from 3" up to a number that works not past 5" spacing.

Sorry there was a typo above. The wall is 173" not 127". I'm not sure 27.75" width would work.

So I've figured out my measurements. Any reason I can't use a picture rail as my molding? It would match the rest of the house. The only draw backs I can see are that one side doesn't sit flush and will cast shadows, and I would be hard to paint so i would most likely pre-paint. Should the fatter part of the molding go on the inside or outside?

Thanks.
