Dado Border

Post by pj38 » Sat 24th Apr, 2021 8:00 am

Hi All

I’m adding a dado in my hallway I’ve got a Victorian anagylpta original pattern ( can’t justify lincrusta )

Anyway - I didn’t want to put a thick dado rail above the anagylpta I wanted to keep it fairly flush to the walls .
I’ve seen the plastic ones but that’s not for me .

Any suggestions?

If you're not going for a traditional dado, then perhaps a panel moulding could be an option. ... el-moulds/

Believe it or not Wickes have a reasonable range of mouldings from Richard Burbidge, there are panel mouldings that are only 6-7mm thick. ... m/p/121304 ... gL5LfD_BwE

If you merely want to mark the line distinctly then you could just use border paper.

I've used Dresser as well, good range and decent quality.

Lincrusta do borders, which would be cheaper than the whole wall
You could try I *heart* borders which is fantastically niche ... er-borders
