Picture Frame Wainscoting Layout help


Hello,

I was hoping I could get some help/ideas on the appropriate way to layout picture frame wainscoting for a baby room. I was hoping to get the same shape "picture frame" look all the way around the room, however due to the walls having different lengths I don't believe this will be possible.

I just want to make the look as uniform as possible.

I've attached a graphic with what I've come up with, but I'm open to suggestions to make it more uniform.

What about two, longer, more horizontal panels on each wall with the spacing in between the same and on the ends?

Continuous, not picture framed, wainscoating is out of the question? Tufted upholstery fabric and not wood?

I think that what I'm going to do is two longer horizontal frames. The frames on the right wall will be 3ft long and the frames on the front/longer wall will be 5ft.

I'm going for a similar look. See attached.

Again, I would aim for the spaces between the "picture frame" trim to be the same distance all the way around the room. That becomes the unifying element. I think then, even though they are a different size, the panels will look fine. You would expect them to be different on different walls.

Just curious how this will work out on the wall with the door? I guess one panel of whatever size on either side of the door?

Looks like it will be a very nice room. Please post a picture of the final product?
