Wainscoting and the meaning of the word might need some explanation. Usually it is used to describe a design where the lower part of a wall is finished in a different material from the one of the upper part of the wall. Most often this refers to wood paneling which has been used for centuries and has several functions – insulation, preventing damage on walls and of course, as a decorative accent.

Wainscoting consists of wooden panels which are installed in a patterned way along the lower part of the wall and it is topped with a chair rail. The type of the panels determines the different types of wainscoting which are nowadays popular in interior design – board-and-batten paneling, raised-or flat-panel, and of course, beadboard.

When using the paneling for purely decorative reasons, it can be installed in any room of the home – office, living or dining room, entryways, corridors and of course – bathroom wainscoting ideas are also quite popular.

Wainscoting will be a great choice for those who want to make your home cozy and elegant. Wooden panels are not only functional – they can hide uneven walls and successfully transform an ordinary room into an elegant one. The great advantages of wood paneling start with the large selection of materials and range of colors which allows people to choose the right panels for their interior design.

As the price of the different materials differ, everyone can choose exactly what he could afford. The easy installation is a great advantage and many people opt to do it by themselves which will reduce the overall cost of the work. The possibility to select the optimal length and width reduces waste of material which, again, makes paneling very cost-effective.
