Wainscot Solutions loves a challenge and often our most challenging projects are using wainscoting to enhance or detract from less than ideal architecture. We are often called in to add architectural detail to homes that were designed without it. Or, we use wainscot to enhance a rooms proportions. For example, in a small room with low ceilings, a tall wainscot on the walls and a paneled ceiling treatment would make it feel warmer and more intimate. On the flip side, if you would like a room to seem larger, lower wainscoting will make the ceilings seem higher and the room larger.
This photo from one of our favorite digital magazines Nesting Newbies is the perfect example of using wainscoting to enhance a room. This tunnel like stairwell was made more visually interesting with the addition of substantial wainscoting, using a unique window treatment to draw your eye to the outside and using the horizontal floor stripes to widen the space. If left without the architectural detail this stairwell would have been quite cavernous, instead it has quite a bit of style.
