Wainscoting Installation & Wall Paneling
Wainscoting installation can add a certain je-ne-sais-quoi to any room, making it attractive, elegant and stylish.
The trend of adding wainscot to decorate rooms was very popular for a few centuries. It was used functionally to protect walls against dampness and minor flooding as well as for strengthening. It was then shunned for many years.
Recently, however, the trend has been picking up again to give a new look and add prestige to a home. Whether it is installed in a basement, living room, child’s bedroom or even in a washroom, you can be assured that wainscoting will add a great touch to the style you want for your room.
Wainscoting is usually made of solid wood such as pine. It is also available in hard wood veneer, molded plastic or pressed board. The colour of choice is usually white to give a Victorian effect; however, wainscot can be painted in a number of colors, in order to provide a special effect in a room, often the look of a charming holder home. Wainscoting can also feature a more rustic look by preserving a natural wood finish.
Wainscoting installation can not only add elegance to a room by adding texture and complimenting colours, it also presents many advantages: it can hide imperfections of walls (holes, scratches, etc) and protect the wall from further chock, bumps and jolts (vacuum cleaner, chair legs, active child etc).
Like the picture rail, the wainscot is typically installed between 32 and 36 inches from the baseboard, covering the whole base of the wall. However, for a more imposing look, the wainscoting can be installed with a higher range.
Adding stylish and fashionable wainscoting can provide great refinement and elegance to all the rooms in your house this, without breaking the bank.
