Wall Texture with Wainscot

We currently have drywall with what I'll call an orange peel texture. We would like to install a wainscot. I'm planning on putting panneling on the drywall for the wainscot so the texture will be smooth, but what about the painted wall above the wainscot? Should that be smooth (or at least smoother) too?

Textured walls

If you like the orange peel texture, then install wainscoating as desired and save the trouble of attempting to smooth the texture. A different texture above, will provide visual interest.
