Shaker Wainscot Inside Corner


Quick question/rule of thumb for a current project.

Long story short we are doing shaker wainscot paneling an a large bathroom. It will end up being pretty tall (about 52"). My question pertains to the inside corners. Should I make the stiles on my inside corners the same width as the stiles in the field (5")? Therefore making my inside corner a 5" butting into a 5" (creating 10" of wood?) or should I split the difference in the inside corners.

Given its only 2 viable inside corners (due to the cabinetry) I'm leaning toward going the 5" but would love to hear your thoughts/experiences.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Shaker Wainscot Inside Corner


imo & previous experience, the stile butting into the 5" stile should be ripped to 4-1/4" so both look the same width.

assuming you are using 3/4 stock.

also assuming i understand your question correctly.

Although I use 4" for my stiles.

Griz,
Thanks. You assumed correctly. My main question was should there be 5" visible on both sides or split the difference so each is 2 1/2" exposed for a total of 5."

Re: Shaker Wainscot Inside Corner


i would prefer the wide stile.

the narrow would catch my eye right away and just not seem right.

mock it up & see which one you or your client prefer.

Re: Shaker Wainscot Inside Corner


the size of the room, number of panels & how the cabinets fit in may help dictate the width of the corner stiles.

Same width on the wall side. Face will be less by the thickness.

Re: Shaker Wainscot Inside Corner


sounds like you're asking for the finished look which I would make the same as all the other stiles-consistency in design. The inside stile would be 5-3/4" for a 5" reveal.

Re: Shaker Wainscot Inside Corner


When I did this, one side of the corner was 4 1/4, the opposing side is 3 1/2. One installed, 3 1/2 visible on both sides.

Splitting the corner would look odd I think. Works for tile, not so much for trim

Re: Shaker Wainscot Inside Corner


Very few people seem to have understood the question.

But the answer has been revealed nonetheless: visually match the width of the field stiles in the corner.
