10 Wainscoting Ideas
Using Board and Batten!

Lots of wainscoting ideas using board and batten, starting with the one I built.  But there is so much flexibility, you can revise the plan to fit your home and your family's needs!

This Board and Batten Wainscoting!

This wainscoting lightened up the room and provided - in a very narrow space - hanging options for the multiple "hoodies" usually left strewn around!

above to see how easy it was to make!

But, if that one doesn't work for you, check out some of these other wainscoting ideas.

Love the Contrast of This Project!

This couple did several rooms with board and batting wainscoting.  The top trim is wider than what I used, and uses two pieces of trim.

This Wainscoting Does Not Use
Additional Base Board Trim.

Because this application was for the whole room, additional base board trim was not needed.  Mine was for one wall only, so I had to match the existing base board trim to the other 3 walls.

Add Some Distressing and Stenciling?

I love the distressing on the wainscoting!  Notice, too, how narrow the top rail is.  Also, the stiles on this version are much closer together than in my project.

Remember,  this is DIY board and batten wainscoting - you can make it fit your style and needs!

A More Complicated Board and Batten.

This wainscoting project has the standard rectangle with a square at the top.  Even though it has more pieces it is still a very doable project for a DIYer!

An Even More Elaborate Version!

Add another square at the bottom to get the look of this wainscoting.  Notice, too, how this version comes up a lot higher on the wall than most you see.  That height is balanced by the wider crown molding at the ceiling.

Make It Even Higher!
