There are circumstances where you may need to end Elite Wall Paneled Wainscoting in the middle of a wall or a doorway without casings. This occurs when you have a long wall which is common to two rooms and you only want to install wainscoting in one of the rooms. The easiest way to finish the ends would be to use a length of Cap Trim. The cap must be mitred to create a 90-degree angle. It then will run down the side of the stile to the floor as shown in the image.

Making a Return using the Top Rail is the best method of finishing wainscoting mid-way on a wall. When you get to where you want to end the Wainscoting, you simply miter the various pieces of the kit so that they create a 90-degree angle facing towards the wall as shown in the image.

You will require a table saw to cut the stile down straight on one side. The stile should sit about a quarter inch in from the bottom of the Upper Rail; this will give it a more finished look.

Ending or Finishing Bead Board in the middle of a wall is best achieved by using the same Cap Trim as is used for the Wall Panel Wainscoting above.
