Raleigh New Home Trends: Beadboard Ceiling Treatments
What Are Beadboard Ceiling Treatments?
Check out these Raleigh custom homes with beadboard ceiling treatments. Beadboard treatments are a classic feature - and they are being added to more transitional (not just traditional) style new homes.
What is a Beadboard treatment?
Beadboard, also referred to as "tongue and groove," is a treatment (usually a ceiling treatment) that gives a routed design to previously flat panels or flat wood coverings.
Beadboard treatments give the home a traditional, classic look.

What is Beadboard made out of?
A Beadboard Treatment can be created using individual wooden planks (commonly pine, cedar, or even plywood), beadboard panels, or even vinyl.
Generally, individual tongue and groove boards will be more costly than full panels, and stain grade beadboard will be more costly than paint grade beadboard.
Beadboard can be either painted or stained, depending on the materials used. Beadboard is commonly painted white, stained a natural tone, or left in its natural wooden state.
Where can Beadboard be used in a home?
Beadboard is not limited to porch ceilings.
In fact, it can be used throughout the home, including on foyer and sunroom ceilings, on kitchen cabinet doors, and as on wainscoating for hallways, dining rooms, mudrooms, and bathrooms.
