Wainscoting is a type of decorative wall panelling that covers only the bottom half of your walls. Originating in the eighteenth century as a means of adding insulation to a room, nowadays wainscoting can give any room an instant boost. It can be used to create an accent wall, or simply make a wall more practical by protecting it from knocks and scuffs. For this reason, it’s a popular choice in hallways and utility rooms.
Wall panelling and wainscoting can completely transform any room. Usually, wainscot panelling only runs to dado rail height so it can look beautiful in smaller rooms, where full height wall panelling may overwhelm the room’s size. We’d recommend treating the top section of the wall like a blank canvas, where you can paint or paper in order to add colour and pattern on top of a traditional panel.
Wall panelling brings instant style to any interior, from traditional high ceiling period properties to modern and minimal new builds. The addition of wainscoting will give your interior that final decorative touch or create a wow factor. Choose your style and create a unique wall panelling feature in your home.
