Product Description

New England Classic® now offers a beadboard wainscoting solution that not only looks totally authentic but out perfoms conventional beadboard alternatives by a country mile. Featuring a crisp, rounded double bead design, our Classic Beadboard recreates the look and feel of "Cottage Style" architecture at its best. New England Classic beadboard wainscoting kits are complete and factory-cut-to-height (to 32", 36," 40" or  44" tall) in your choice of unfinished or factory painted or stained, all at Delivered Prices!  No height cuts needed.  No special routing tools are required.  No surprises.  The Classic Beadboard 8-foot systems are complete with panel sections, top and bottom rail FramePaks®, caps and shoe molding, all of which integrate perfectly with New England Classic® door and window CasingPaks®.  

Depending upon the finished height you select, our panels are precision cut at the factory to either 23" or 31" tall panels and all components use either solid wood or an engineered wood core which ensures minimal seasonal expansion and contraction so there are no unsightly gaps or seams. classic-beadb-component-illustr.jpg

Each Classic Beadboard®  kit contains enough panels, top and bottom rails, cap molding and shoe molding to cover eight linear (aka running) feet. Our installed system comes in four finished heights: 32", 36", 40" and 44" and the installation is a snap, requiring less than half the time of solid board (cut on-site) applications. See Classic Beadboard Systems illustration.

Painting our paintable kits is quick and simple with no sanding necessary as all elements are fully primed and ready to paint with your choice of latex, oil, or acrylic. One finish coat provides a rich smooth surface and years of satisfaction. You can order you kit factory painted, as well!

The cost of the Classic Beadboard® system will surprise you, and the time saved in installation and finishing makes the system more than affordable for almost every situation. There is no better way to bring the warmth and style of beadboard wainscot to your next project than with the New England Classic® system.


Classic Beadboard traces it's ancestry to 19th century Victorian, English Country, Cottage, Folk, and Queen Anne styles. It was associated with less formal homes and spaces, particularly vacation cottages.Bead board is also known as bead board, beaded board, and beaded paneling.


Classic Beadboard is generously used for wainscoting in foyers, hallways, bathrooms, and other less formal gathering spaces of primary residences and throughout cottages and vacation homes.  No Design Request form is needed on beadboard kits.

  3. Customer Service Surely a Treat - Beyond Satisfactory 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Jul 13th 2011

    I just wanted to reach out to you personally and notify you of your company's customer service. I dealt with them a couple of weeks ago and between their promptness and attention to the customer, it was beyond satisfactory. The individual who I spoke with (I apologize, I forget his name) was very courteous and helpful throughout all of my questions and in this day in age that kind of customer service is surely a treat. I just wanted to take the time to thank you for holding up to the standards that customer service used to be.

    Take care,
