What is wainscoting?

Wainscoting is a lower wall treatment that adds a more upscale, formal look to a room at minimal cost, with chair-rail molding, baseboard, and a series of trim pieces.

You'll most often find wainscoting in formal dining rooms, foyer entryways, hallways and powder rooms, but as you can see, creative designers can show you ways to add wainscoting details to kitchen islands, columns, and anywhere else you want to spotlight.

Shiplap Wall Ideas:

Well, shiplap is not technically wainscoting - but it's a popular trim style for new homes!

We've seen a lot of shiplap designs over fireplaces, in mud rooms (as a drop zone) and on an accent wall in the kitchen or master bedroom.
