What height are your baseboards?

I'm redoing floors, I read they should be 7% of ceiling height ( 10 ft ceiling= 7 inch). My LR has cathedral ceiling so I'm fine with them tall there but my FR/ kitchen is 10 feet and I'm concerned they will look too tall.

In the article below it says 5-7 inches for a 10 foot wall.

 

There is other interesting info that might help.

I have 9' walls with 6" flat baseboards. When we built this cottage I wanted the look to be very cottagy. Hence my tall, flat, white baseboards.
