What is wainscoting?

The term “wainscot” describes both the paneling and the process of installing paneling on walls. Initially, it was used a form of insulation and was typically made from oad. Usualla a dado or chair rail is added when the wainscotting is installed on the lower third of the room. Wainscoting should never split a wall in half, but should generally be done in thirds.

What is the purpose of wainscoting?

Wainscoting was used in the past to provide insulation and to control mold on the lower portion of walls. But the beauty of wainscoting has remained with us long after the need for it passed. We now use wainscoting as as decoration to add grace and style in areas of the home.

What is wainscoting made of?

At one time, wainscoting was make from solid wood, however, now wainscoting is typically made from plywood, medium density fiberboard or even plastics.

What are the different types of wainscoting?

Raised panel wainscoting, true to its name, has a center raised area as the focal point of each panel.

Board and batten describes wainscoting with boards which alternate between wide and narrow. The boards are wide, and the battens are the narrow part of the pattern sceme. IN the traditional pattern, the boards were installed and the battens nailed over the top of the top of the seams between panels and used either vertically or horizontally.

What’s the difference between wainscoting and beadboard?

Beadboard is comprised of small strips of wood separated by a small ridge or indentation, known as the “bead”. Wainscoting is a broader term, which refers to decorative paneling.

How Much does wainscoting cost?

The cost of wainscoting will vary depending on the type of patter and the materials used in the design. Generally speaking, the more elaborate the design, the higher the cost.
