Picture rail in hallway in Victorian terrace

Postby Kate31_r » Wed Feb 22, 2017 1:10 pm

Hi Everyone,

We are currently renovating a Victorian house. We are reinstating the original features which includes a picture rail in the hallway, but I can't find anything anywhere about how this works with the stairs - it can't run up the stairs so where and how do you end it? Just as an FYI, I mean a picture rail which runs up high above the doors - not a chair rail which you can obviously run up the stairs.

All help hugely appreciated!

Thanks.

Our house (and other Victorian houses in the street) has a picture rail on both sides of the hall.

When it gets to the foot of the stairs (on the stair wall only) it then turns 90 degrees (and vertical) and goes up to meet the ceiling (or coving).

I don't know if this is the standard practice but it is original... and it looks good!

Hope this helps!

Hi - I never would have thought of that! Is it cheeky to ask whether you have a pic!

Thanks so much for your advice.
