Wainscoting Inspiration and Decorating Ideas

Welcome friends to Natasha in Oz!


Today I would like to share some of my favourite Wainscoting ideas.


According to Wikipedia, Wainscot or wainscoting (pronounced UK: /ˈweɪnskət/US: /ˈweɪnskɒt/us dict: wān′·skət, wān′·skŏt) is a paneling style applied to the lower 3' (900mm) to 5' (1500mm) of an interior wall, below the dado rail or chair rail and 
above the baseboard or skirting board. The original purpose of wainscoting was to cover the lower part of walls which, in houses constructed with poor or 
nonexistent damp-proof courses, are often affected by rising dampness.

I was first introduced to wainscoting when I watched Sarah's House and her most recent

I instantly fell in love with the way that wainscoting mixed with coloured walls or wallpaper could keep a modern room from feeling and looking ultra-modern.

Wainscoting paneling can be applied to the lower portion of the walls of a room, above the baseboard and even below the chair rail.

Wainscoting adds different things to different rooms. For example, raised- or flat-panel wainscoting, especially panels that reach up to the middle of the wall or even eye level, can add formality and elegance to a dining room.

 It originally served to protect the lowest portions of a wall from normal wear and tear, which was especially important before paints and wallpapers became as durable as they are today.

Beaded wainscoting painted a crisp white can add brightness and cheer to a bedroom, especially when set against a light and playful contrasting wall color or paper.
