My DIY recessed panel wainscoting (also called judges paneling) is finished, and I LOVE how it turned out!But you can see the bottom trim piece on this section behind where the toilet will sit.It looked more like a really thick piece of lattice after that.It’s a mix of glazed tile and stone tile, and the glazed tiles are so shiny!Now that it’s finished, I think I can finally screw the vanity to the wall and be done with it.
The Right Height to Wainscot Depending on Your Wall
In the bathroom, wainscoting can add a chic alternative to tile or wallpaper.For a bathroom wall, aim to keep wainscoting height to one-third of the entire wall height.So if your wall is 12 feet from floor to ceiling, you’ll install wainscoting from the top of the baseboard to the four-foot mark.Make Marks For Wainscoting Height and StudsFirst, measure the wall, then measure to the height you’d like for the wainscoting.You’ll glue the wall panels until you reach a stud, where you’ll nail in the wainscoting with the nail gun.
