The lower part of an internal wall that has a different finish to the upper part. It is so that the part of the wall which could become dirty or scuffed by furniture is easier to clean. The division is usually at the height of the back of a chair. Dado rail is a moulded addition to the wall between the lower and upper parts, this also helps prevent the wall becoming damaged by furniture.
