Paneled Rooms On The Internet

Did you know you could have a paneled room designed on the Internet? The idea of a beautifully designed pine paneled library has always been appealing to me. Scouring books on classical architecture and sketching well proportioned rooms used to be a pleasant past time. With the dawn of the Internet the thought of trying to figure out how to have people send me their room specifications and I would in turn create a lovely arrangement for them weighed heavily in my mind.

Well that time has come and gone. If you don't keep up with those skills they quickly fade form memory. The only thing I still remember, which is probably not even true to classic design is that the cornice, forming the transition between wall and ceiling should be one fourteenth the dimension of the entire height of the wall and that a well proportioned room should be twice as long as it is wide, three quarters as long as it is wide or two thirds as long as it is wide. Again, real decorators or architects will probably find error with these simple rules of thumb that I have carried with me over the years, but as a general principal they have seemed to work for me.

The paneled rooms above are from the website Architectural Paneling, Inc. They say on the site that "You can send or fax your floor plan with ceiling height and functional requirements, as well as any style preferences you may have to: Email:". They will design and build you the paneled room of your dreams.
