Artistry In Your Walls, Not On Them


New England Classic WainscotingThe large majority of people walk into a room and think of paintings or other decorations to liven up a blank wall. Indeed, almost every home does this, but let’s try to see a different approach. Suppose that instead of hanging art, you made the wall itself the art? Making the wall the focus, using accent wall ideas instead of something hanging there isn’t hard to do at all.

Getting creative with wood products as accent wall ideas can transform a plain wall into an intriguing pattern or define a certain style. Products like:

  • Wainscoting, paneling that seldom rises above the chair rail in height, roughly 3 to 5 feet. It was originally used to provide protection against dampness.
  • Paneling, a full floor to ceiling panel used as a decorative wall cover. They can be straight-planked style or panel style. It was originally used to insulate rooms from cold stone walls.
  • Boiserie is a French word used to describe the style of ornate carved paneling. They were filled with accent wall ideas, with creative uses of panel and trim making true wall art.

Those are the starting points to making your wall a center of attention. Wainscoting in particular can set and define an entire home’s decorating feel. Its accent wall ideas can turn your kitchen into that cozy Early-American dream worthy of any Rockwell painting. That same wainscoting can traverse rooms and turn your living room into a classic New England setting room with almost no effort.

Taking advantage of wainscoting and full panels, combined with a variety of trim styles can give the decorator an unbounded number of ideas. Raised panel wainscoting with classic looks, combined with a deep cap trim gives you a spot to display painted dishes, or any other accent wall ideas. Bathrooms and attics are perfect spots for a more delicate look like the classic beadboard style. Straight planking of the wood at about four inch widths with a small fluted bead separating them makes this classic look one of the best ever.

New England Classic wainscoting and paneling systems give you the ability to bring any accent wall ideas to reality. From that classic Rockwellian kitchen, to that chic modern living room wall to your home office in beautiful Boiserie work, New England Classic can supply everything you need.
