I'm interior designer Christopher Grubb with Arch Interiors. Wainscots are a wonderful opportunity to bring an architectural element into a bathroom. The most traditional one is a bead board which is tongue and groove wood with a crown on top and it's typically painted bright white. That way you could do a paint color up above it and it emphasizes the wainscot. I personally like to use stone as a wainscot. Here's an example of a project that I love because there's a multitude of crowns. This has a glass liner that's really unexpected and you can see on the main field they ran the tile at a 45 degree angle. I think it's a little bit more elegant than just simply having grout lines horizontal and vertical. Here's another project that you can see the crown continues on to the back of the backs-plash. It unites the whole room together, feels more architectural, continues the wainscot and really pulls the look together. And lastly if you're going to use a wainscot I really encourage you to put a crown molding in. It's the finishing touch to the top of the room. I'm Christopher Grubb. Thank you for watching.
