Home Trend 2013: Wainscot Paneling

Is there a space in your home you’re looking to upgrade? If so, then just take a look at your walls. Yes, a can of paint can make a world of difference, but if you’re considering an elegant way to update your living space checkout wainscoting. This designer favorite adds Old World charm to any room, especially in living rooms, dining areas and bathrooms.

Wainscoting is basically wooden covering of a wall. In the 18th century, paneling changed from a floor-to-ceiling covering to one in which only the lower part of the wall was covered. The original purpose of wainscoting was to cover the lower part of walls which were often affected by rising dampness. Today its purpose is purely decorative.

There are plenty of designs homeowners can have made and installed. Within the living room, wainscoting will surely provide a classic architectural element, while in the bathroom, it can be the cure-all that pulls together the space. Wainscoting can also be customized to match perfectly with your custom cabinets and vanity!
