Any tips on sizing the width of raised panels for different sized walls in the same room?

Generally, the raised panels should be balanced – that is, all panels in a given space (wall or section) should be of equal width. A section might be a corner to the window jamb, another section would be on the other side of the window. Vertical stiles should be a consistent width all the way around.

You might consider the “Golden Ratio” developed and used by the ancient Greeks. This ratio, approximately 1.618, between height and width (or width and height) will generally give you a very pleasing look. For best results, size your raised panel wainscoting to be as close as possible to this ideal ratio. Stay away from “square” panels unless you have specific reasons or a constraint you can’t work around.

Great post full of useful tips! My site is fairly new and I am also having a hard time getting my readers to leave comments. Analytics shows they are coming to the site but I have a feeling “nobody wants to be first”.
