Why Choose Wainscot Wall Panels

The term "wainscot" is derived from the German words "wand" (wall) and "schotten" (to board or line with wood). Historically, wainscoting was used as a practical solution to insulate and protect the lower part of walls from moisture, damage from furniture, and general wear and tear.

Beyond its functional and aesthetic purposes, wainscot panelling can also serve as a design element to create visual interest and define different spaces within a room. For example, it can be used to separate an entryway from a living area or to create the illusion of separate zones within an open-concept layout.

Wainscot panelling is a classic and versatile design feature that can add warmth, texture, and visual interest to any room in a home or commercial space.

Wainscot Wall Panelling with a Dado Rail

A dado rail adds a traditional touch to your half-height panelling and makes the perfect wainscot cap. A wainscot cap gives the panelling a more traditional, classic look than shaker wall panelling on its own.

Many of our customers add a wainscot cap to their hallway panelling and paint the top half of the wall a complementary neutral colour. If you're planning on panelling your bathroom or other high-humidity areas we recommend using our Custom Height Bathroom Wall Panelling with a Dado Rail which includes moisture-resistant MDF.
