Wainscoting Decorating Ideas

Wainscoting Adds Charm

Interior decorative trim, like wainscoting, makes a room look and feel finished, transforming it into an inviting, three-dimensional space. Traditionally used to protect walls from bumps, nicks and scuffs, wainscoting has evolved into a decorative way to introduce architectural interest and texture to a room. If you’re struggling with how to add warmth and character to a room, take a look at the subtle aesthetics you can achieve with wainscoting.

Wainscoting Decorating Ideas

  • Make a standard chair rail an architectural feature in your dining room by installing WoodHaven® wainscoting below the rail. Splitting this wall into two sections invites the eye to follow the border around the room. The space above the chair rail is now a blank canvas for pictures and artwork. Bonus benefit: the vertical lines of the wainscoting planks make the room look taller.
  • Clean, white walls and picturesque farmhouse style beadboard wainscoting set the scene for a cozy atmosphere in a bathroom or kitchen, or any room that needs a personality boost.
  • Install wainscoting planks horizontally for a fun update on a classic style.
  • Don’t overlook the power of paint. Coordinate furniture, rugs, and floors by painting wainscoting in a complementary hue.

Easy Installation

The affordability of WoodHaven planks plus easy installation makes installing wainscoting a popular home improvement job that any level DIYer can handle. Planks, available at home improvement centers, cover a maximum wall height of 42” but can be trimmed to match your room’s proportions.

While you can appreciate wainscoting’s practical function in protecting the lower portion of your walls, it’s really the decorative role that makes this versatile trim something quite remarkable.
