How high should my board and batten be?

by Laura

I’m putting board and batten in my entry hall. It’s a small space and directly left of the entry door is a small landing for the stairway. This makes the ceiling lower on the landing. Do I stay consistent with the height of my board and batten (42 inches up from the floor) which will make the board and batten go pretty high up the landing wall and staircase wall, or do I keep the landing height of the board and batten even with the hallway height ? This would make the landing board and batten 35 inches up from the landing floor.
