Wainscoting in Kids' Rooms

Have you ever thought of adding wainscoting to a kid's room or nursery? These boards can add texture and dimension to a room while blending nicely with your color scheme or decor. We found some traditional and some unique takes on wainscoting in kids' rooms. Check them out!

1. This Old House: Double-height flat panel wainscoting creates a more traditional look in an older child's room.

2. Aiden's "Modern Preppy" Nursery: We love the way the wainscoting merges into the built-in shelves, making one continuous piece around the room.

3. Funk Design Studio:Traditional bead board painted to match your color scheme can make a boy's room look rustic.

4. Tatertots and Jello: Using sheet metal makes an unusual wainscoting that can also be used as a magnet board.

5. The Painted Home: Instead of installing wall panels, using a contrasting paint color with a few planks creates the look of wainscoting.

Have you used wainscoting in your child's room?
