In the days before paint was scrubbable and wallpaper was massproduced, wainscoted walls served a practical purpose; covering the lowest and most vulnerable portion of a wall. Covering with wood paneling provided an attractive and decorative wall treatment tough enough to withstand cleaning and resist any damages due to everyday use.
Even with today's modern paint and wallpapers, wainscoting still serves its intended protective purpose; however people use it most often because of the way it transforms a bland space into an elegant room by adding interesting detail to walls that don't otherwise have any built-in character.
Sure, that all sounds reasonable until you start to consider the cost. Until recently the trouble was, if you wanted wainscoting you either had to make-do by faking the look with trim applied directly to the wall or spend a lot of money on a custom carpenter and custom-shaped panels. Now with high speed production techniques and modern, precision made MDF or Hardwood Poplar components, Elite Mouldings makes installing your own paneled wainscoting a more viable option.
We offer several types of wainscoting, whether you are a DIY kind of person, a contractor, builder or you have a carpenter to do the job for you, our pre-manufactured kits save time and money on the job site and come with detailed instructions.
When choosing, you should consider which wainscoting is appropriate for your application. Each Elite Wainscoting System can be used for different purposes without breaking the bank or skimping on decorative appeal. Keep in mind that we have experienced personnel standing by to answer any questions that you may have, just a phone call away.
