There is a product that we used in our current home that we found at **********/***** type stores that is a 4'x 8' sheet. It is prepainted white beadboard that has a "plastic" type coating on it. Perfect for bathrooms for kids - just wipe it down when they get to splashing! The only thing is be sure you don't use too many nails & use finish nails in the seams to minimize the amount of coverup you'll need to do. Our trim guys didn't do that the first time (thinking it would be painted) and they had to buy us new boards & replace it. Have fun!

some beadboard like this is installed using the li quid na ils type glues(in a caulking tube) and then you put the nails where they won't be seen along the top and bottom where the trim covers it, to hold it untill the glue sets hard.

one note is with some caulking glues, you put the panal on and then pull it off for a couple of seconds and repress it back on . this is used for caulking glues that are more like contact cement to allow better adhesion.

Azek is a 5'16" beadboard made of white cellular PVC

Excellence is its own reward!
