What is wainscoting?

Wainscoting is a lower wall treatment that adds a more upscale, formal look to a room at minimal cost. Wainscoting usually consists of three parts: chair-rail molding, baseboard, and a series of design pieces in between.

What is Picture Frame Wainscoating?

Also called Shadow Box Wainscoating, this treatment consists of "boxes" created by adding "picture frames" of trim work underneath the chair rail treatment.

What is Ladder Rail Wainscoating?

One of the easiest do it yourself treatments, ladder rail wainscoating is vertical trim tacked up in a series of steps, ending at chair rail height.

What is Beadboard Wainscoating?

Beadboard wainscoating consists of panels installed between baseboard and chair rail, with interesting texture and grooves.







You'll learn exactly what to do to install each of these three types of wainscoating, in just two hours onsite with Stanton Homes!
