Wainscoting in Bathrooms

Today we are featuring a guest post from our friends at Wainscot Solutions located in nearby New Milford, Connecticut.

One of our favorite techniques for adding personality and style to a basic bathroom is to add instant architectural detail with wainscoting.  Not only does wainscot look great in bathrooms it is practical as well.  People usually select wainscot because they love the look,.  However, historically it was used to protect the walls of high traffic areas.  No debating that in most homes bathrooms are definitely high traffic areas!

We really love using wainscot in powder rooms since they tend to suffer the most from the every day wear and tear of family life.  Dirty hands, swinging bags and high traffic do tend to take their toll on these small rooms.  Wainscot will add that extra protection to your powder room walls while offering endless decorating possibilities.

Go ahead and use wainscot in your full baths too since MDF will construction will hold up to these high humidity areas.  A bathroom that has wainscot walls and an interesting tile selection really stands out from the crowd.

Here are some favorite bathrooms.
