ELITE BEADED PANEL WAINSCOTING
Key West styling boosts traditional New England favorite
Beadboard has been a hallmark of classic New England homes and seaside cottages for centuries. Widely spaced vertical grooves or narrow ones, beadboard options are both simple and stunning at the same time. And this gave us an idea that we're pretty proud of. Inspired by Key West architecture, we developed Beaded Panel Wainscoting -- an Elite Trimworks exclusive. It combines the vertical lines of classic beadboard, surrounded by a framework of stiles and rails normally found only on traditional frame and panel wainscot. Taken together, this combination delivers all the refined simplicity you expect from beadboard, even across large walls. But where ordinary beadboard might appear too visually busy over expansive areas, beaded panel wainscoting just keeps on looking great, without ever becoming overwhelming. Stiles and rails are the secret. They add just enough visual variety to make it all work.
Whatever you do, don't be fooled by the intricate appearance. We've done everything possible to make our beaded panel wainscoting exceptionally easy to finish and install. The back edges of both top and bottom rails, for instance, are grooved to envelop the beadboard panel, hiding joint lines effortlessly. Each 8-foot-long kit comes primed and ready to paint, or in three real wood veneers suitable for staining: red oak, hard maple and cherry. We also offer stair kits for continuous wainscot installations both up and down staircases. Need help ordering? Wondering about installation procedures? Want so help understanding the basic wainscoting options better? No question is too advanced or elementary. Just call or email our expert telephone consultants for all the answers.
