This tool helps you calculate the amount of materials needed for your wainscotting project.

## Wainscotting Calculator

Use this calculator to determine the number of panels needed for your wainscoting project.

### How to Use:

- Enter the width of the wall (in inches).
- Enter the height of the wall (in inches).
- Enter the width of each panel (in inches).
- Enter the height of each panel (in inches).
- Enter the width of the top rail (in inches).
- Enter the width of the side stiles (in inches).
- Enter the spacing between stiles (in inches).
- Click the “Calculate” button.
- The result shows the total number of panels required.

### Explanation of Calculation:

The calculator uses the dimensions provided to determine how many panels will fit horizontally and vertically on the wall. It then multiplies these two values to give the total number of panels required.

The calculation considers the width of the side stiles and the spacing between the stiles.

### Limitations:

The calculator does not take into account any doors, windows, or other obstacles that may affect the number of panels required. Always measure and consider these factors before starting your project.

## Use Cases for This Calculator

### Calculate Number of Panels Needed

To determine the number of panels needed for your wainscoting project, input the total length of the wall and the width of each panel. The calculator will instantly provide you with the exact number of panels required for your project.

### Estimate Total Cost

By entering the cost per panel and any additional costs like trim or adhesive, you can quickly estimate the total cost of your wainscoting project. This gives you a clear budget for materials and helps you plan accordingly.

### Optimize Panel Placement

With the help of the panel spacing feature, you can evenly distribute panels along the wall by entering the total length and desired space between each panel. This ensures a balanced and visually appealing layout for your wainscoting.
