Adding dimension to lower bedroom walls, and sometimes extending across walls or a ceiling, the simple, linear pattern of beadboard’s vertical planks often exudes a cozy cottage feel.
Unlike in the Victorian era, beadboard is no longer confined to kitchens, hallways or closets, but it continues to provide a cost-effective alternative to more elaborate wainscoting styles.
Beadboard bedroom sometimes diverges from its traditional feel and bright white color. Its simple, grooved surface provides an opportunity to apply subtle color glazes, establishing textural contrast with smooth walls.
In painted or natural wood tones, beadboard’s structured linearity also enhances bedroom accent walls.
