There are no strict rules for the height of bathroom wainscoting. It depends on the personal taste of the homeowner and the overall design of the bathroom. Of course, the main goal is to have the maximum effect from design as well as to get the best from purely practical point of view. Most people opt for the traditional height of 45 inches off the ground including the top rail but there are people who prefer high raised wall panels. The height of the wainscoting would also depend on the height of the room, sink height, the size and height of the vanity unit, etc.

Colors of bathroom wainscoting can vary from traditional white to natural wood. White and natural wood blend in and suit to every wall color but if the overall bathroom design features any other color – the wainscoting can be easily painted.
