Wainscoting is a simple way to add a new look to your home without having the commitment of major renovations. Wainscot can be a refreshing element to add in any home. Wainscot’s recent comeback and popularity into the interior design trend world has many homeowners feeling inspired to add this element to their home.
Traditionally, the pre-manufactured beaded wainscot panels were in homes everywhere growing up! They were in dining rooms, living rooms, powder rooms, the list can go on and on. In fact, many people's parents owned multiple homes and with wainscot applications in all of them. The unfortunate part is how outdated they've become, unless dressed up from the original white or natural wood tones.
As design trends continue to evolve, we have seen that the wainscot application continue to have a presence. From interiors to exteriors the half wall modification can really update the look and feel of any space!
As previously mentioned, we have seen that wainscoting can really establish and anchor a room. There are traditional options varying from no panel, raised panel, flat panel or beaded. There are more modern or industrial applications with unique millwork, metal panels and framed corrugated panels. The application can be applied to a quarter, half or even the entire wall, making a dramatic accent to any space. It’s a feature wall that ultimately anchors the room and impacts conversations for you as well as any guest.
Wainscoting applications lend themselves to any space. Whether it is your entryway, mud room, living room, man cave, kitchen island or you are using it for more of a practical reason, they sky's the limit.
The great thing about a wainscot kit is that it takes the guesswork out, providing everything you will need to complete the project. Most of the wainscot kits on the market are made out of MDF (Medium Dense Fiberboard), and include only the additional trim pieces to frame out the panel.
What you want to look for is a wainscot kit like Bridger Steel offers, which includes everything from the panels, trim and screws, down to the drill and driver bits needed. Having to get additional supplies after you are home is the worst! Needing to order more items on top of the original order is an added cost and can be frustrating as well.
