You could design a newel that is compatible with your wainscoting, quarter the newel and wrap the corner and let the wainscoting die into the newel. A newel something like below:
I've got an aesthetic dilemma and I need some perspective, some alternate ideas to consider.
I'm in the process of installing wainscot (using Gary Striegler's system) throughout the first floor of this house. Take a look at the image below. I plan to wrap the arched opening in casing, but I also intend to skirt the niche within the opening with wainscot. I've worked out a couple ideas in CADD but I cannot find a transition that looks right.
I'm open to suggestions.
The flexTrim...is pretty much the solution.
The wainscot minimizes niche IMO, not what you want as the niche is a focal point.
I track with you on that corner. All casing in this house extends to the floor. We're considering cutting in plinth blocks throughout. But that detail is outside of this discussion.The only thing that jumps out to me is the baseboard at the corner. Maybe a plinth block to tie everything together?
From that angle the arch gets me, no other arch or rounded features everything else is flat/square, the arch has nothing to connect to.The only thing that jumps out to me is the baseboard at the corner. Maybe a plinth block to tie everything together?
