Product Description

The Classic Cottage style combines two of our most popular designs into one beautiful panel system. The simple design elements of the Classic American flat panels are now combined with the crisp rounded double bead design of Classic Beadboard in our two-tiered wainscot system. The result is a refined casual design inspired by the architectural styles from the late 17th to the early 20th centuries.

The system includes beadboard PanelSets in either 23” or 31” heights used at the bottom, combined with 12”x12” flat PanelSets and corresponding stiles for the top.  Also included are complete top and bottom rails systems, including a 96" length of shoe molding, base rail, intermediate rail, top rail and top cap.  The completed installation will be close to either a very dramatic 48” or 56” in overall height with our standard kits. Other heights are available per custom order request.classic cottage component kit pieces

Classic Cottage is manufactured using select grade-A veneer, oak, maple or cherry, laminated to a stable engineered wood core. If you want the finished installation to be painted our primed paintable option is the way to go. Classic Cottage is available ready-to-finish or factory-finished in white paint or several standard stain colors. Or for an up-charge, we will match the stain color you specify.

Classic Cottage wainscoting systems combine two of the most widely used styles---raised and/or flat panels with beadboard to create a truly impressive enhancement of any room.


Beadboard traces its roots to 18th- and 19th-century Europe where it was used in less formal homes and spaces, particularly vacation cottages. On the other hand, raised panels first appeared in the 17th century in the more formal Georgian, Federalist and Queen Anne styles, while in the 19th century the flat or “recessed” panel took root in America in the Shaker, Prairie, and Arts and Craft styles.


The combination of the more formal panels and the less formal beadboard renders Classic Cottage appropriate for any room in the home. However, specific room suggestions would include less formal gathering areas like kitchens, entry ways, guest bedrooms and family rooms.

Classic Cottage Beadboard, in 8' and 4' kits are standard sizes, and we do not need a Design Request Form to be filled out, but you may fill one out if you want us to confirm any!

  1. The Results Were Great 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Apr 1st 2013

    Hi Richard,

    I wanted to drop you a quick note to say Thank You ... I've really enjoyed dealing with you and have finished installing the Wainscot and Panel system.

    The project was a lot of fun. Like any old house there are always challenges to get the proper fit, but I think the results were great. I've attached pictures of the room and can say I'm really happy with the end result, the product, installation and especially your team at New England Classic.
