Wainscoting for Your Central PA Bathroom Remodel

There are so many different ideas and design elements out there when it comes to remodeling your home’s bathroom, it can get overwhelming! Our team at Re-Bath & More works with Central PA homeowners to determine their tastes and get a sense of their style, and upon doing so, we’re able to make suggestions for the ideal bathroom design to fit your needs and desires.

However, one element that we often suggest for homeowners looking for a classic bathroom design that will stand the test of time is wainscoting.

What Is Wainscoting?

Wainscoting is a type of wall paneling that originally served as a type of insulation to protect walls from water damage back in the eighteenth century (and to cover up any signs of water damage, if the walls had already experienced it). Now, wainscoting is still used for these purposes, but also adds a traditional, classic look that brightens up a bathroom.

You may see a variety of types of wainscoting in bathrooms, including raised panel wainscoting, flat panel wainscoting, and beadboard wainscoting. The type that you install in your Central PA bathroom remodel simply depends on your tastes and design preferences, since all three provide the same purpose in your bathroom.

What Are the Benefits of Wainscoting in Bathroom Remodels?

Wainscoting is a great bathroom design solution thanks to its durability. It can be installed at any height and be painted any color, which makes it a versatile option when considering how to design many aspects of your bathroom, including the walls themselves as well as the side of your bathtub or your vanity.

Additionally, if you’re interested in adding any waist-high walls in your bathroom (for instance, one that separates your toilet from the rest of the space), wainscoting is a great way to add a touch of flair that will last for years.

It’s also worth considering that if your bathroom walls are damaged or stained in any way, wainscoting is an easy way to conceal these imperfections and make your bathroom look like new again.

This is one of our favorite solutions to freshen or brighten up a dark, dingy bathroom. It’s also an ideal way to add texture and patterns to your bathroom remodel without it being overwhelming to the eye. The wainscoting is also easy to paint if you get bored with the color or want to “refresh” your bathroom anytime in the future.
