panel bottom/drywall top: thickness difference

hi all,

in finishing my basement, i'm planning on going with beaded paneling for the bottom 3'6", and drywall for the top 4'. on the exterior walls, i've used furring strips and foam insulation on the concrete, so i can just put up the paneling directly on the bottom half. the paneling is 3/16", and i'm using 1/2" drywall, so there will be a thickness difference where they meet. on the other side, i'll have a thickness differential in the opposite direction - where i've got newly framed interior walls, i'll be putting the paneling up over the drywall on the bottom half, so the bottom half will be the thicker one.

i have no idea exactly what to do in terms of trim to make up for the difference. any thoughts would be appreciated.

Usually one hangs drywall from floor to ceiling and adds the wainscot in the bottom area over the drywall, thereby avoid any thickness problems.
