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.

5 Top Bathroom Wainscoting Ideas

Posted by Penny Hull on Mon, Jun 01, 2015 @ 07:06 AM

Top 5 Wainscoting Ideas for the Bathroom | Bathroom Wainscoting Photos

Bathroom Wainscoting Photos:

You can add formal design to any bathroom with wainscot paneling. Here are some examples of homes with wainscot walls (with photos below):


How to Add Wainscoting to a Bathroom:

Below are 5 top ways to add wainscoting to a bathroom. See examples of kid's bathrooms, powder rooms, and master en suite bathrooms, each with custom wainscot panel designs. 

Bathrooms with Wainscoting #1: White Kids Bath

In this kid's bathroom, white wainscot walls set the toilet area apart. Towel hooks offer open storage on each side of the room, beside the vanity area and shower.

Bathrooms with Wainscoting #2: White Master Bath

A single, full wall of wainscot style panels divides this master bathroom into two distinct spaces: with a shower on one side and freestanding tub on the other.

White panels not only make the room a bit more formal -- they also create a spa atmosphere.

Bathrooms with Wainscoting #3: Formal Powder Room

A cabinet sink would overwhelm this small powder room, which uses a pedestal sink instead. A simple painted picture frame wainscoting design and gold framed mirror add formality to the room.

Bathrooms with Wainscoting #4: Contemporary Powder Room

Wainscot panels run along the walls of this powder room. A gray, black, and white granite counter top pulls the room colors together.

When used in such a small space -- like a powder room -- wainscoting panels can make a huge design difference with minimal cost.

Bathrooms with Wainscoting #5: Gray Painted Wainscoting

While wainscoting is typically painted white -- to match the room's trim color -- we're seeing more requests for painted wainscot walls.

Here is an example of gray wainscoting in a contemporary master bathroom. The white floor tiles form a herringbone pattern below the freestanding tub.

Wainscoting and paneled walls are a classic addition to any bathroom - from powder rooms to kid's baths to the master en suite bath.



Raleigh Custom Homes with Wainscoting Ideas:

Wainscoting patterns may include chair-rail molding, baseboard, and a series of design pieces that form a distinct design. As a lower wall treatment, wainscoting adds a more upscale, formal look to a room at minimal cost.
