Chair rails (or dado rails to give them their proper name) need to be added at approx. 1/3 of the height of the room (that's about 3ft), but the best guide is to fit them about windowsill level. Depending on what type of frame you have you can go just above or just below. Take a piece and position it before you commit yourself.

Painting below a darker colour and above in a contrasting lighter colour can look very elegant.
