White wainscotting

Five Star Painting provides wainscoting installation services as part of our trim and moldings services.

White wainscotting

Wainscoting is a form of decorative paneling which you would recognize in homes described
as “charming” or reminiscent of years past: Think over-the-top libraries and receiving rooms of homes in the 18th and 19th centuries. The history of this type of ornamental addition stems from the point where function and style meet, as a protective covering to keep the house warm and the walls clean. Over the centuries the design has changed from covering an entire wall to the purely aesthetic lower wall touches that homeowners enjoy today.

These days installing wainscoting to different rooms of a home is a compelling upgrade that enhances the visual effect of your walls by adding a distinct contrast and style. Together with other trim work, wainscoting can be the boldest way to transforming a boring wall to a more interesting one. Whether you consider the work classic interior design or a short-term trend, there is no denying that the end result of wainscoting lends itself to a trademark sophistication.
