Wainscoting, or paneling only on the bottom three or four feet of wall, is an incredibly versatile design element to incorporate into any interior. Take a look at some wonderful examples of wainscoting and how it can be used to great effect in many different areas of a home.
Wainscoting adds a beautiful contrast to both of these light, playful children’s rooms. The room above even incorporates a deep ledge which is used to display artwork.
Entryway or foyer
The wainscoting in this entryway, as well as a deep lintel and fluted door frame, adds architectural interest and contrasts nicely with the rich wood banister.
Extra-tall, white wainscoting serves nicely as a frame for the hanging items in this comfortably elegant living room, above. Below, robin’s egg blue wainscoting adds a dose of vibrant color and visual texture to the room.
The use of wainscoting in this dining room allows for a bold, graphic wallpaper that would normally be too overwhelming for the space. However, used in such a small area, the look works perfectly.
