The three-dimensional quality of wainscoting adds a finishing touch to plain-Jane painted drywall. This millwork comes in a variety of styles, including raised or flat panel as well as cottage-style beadboard. Wainscoting isn't just for the indoors, either. Board-and-batten was often used on farmhouse exteriors during the Arts and Crafts era, and today provides textural interest to any interior space.
