Character is the main reason I love old homes. Quirky rooms, quality wood trim, built-in cabinets, and more. All those things that lend charm and interest. You can create character in your own home with something as simple as bead board.
Bead board is fairly easy to install and it really makes a great impact in a room.
I love the look of natural bead board. It immediately adds depth and warmth to a space.
Use it to add texture and dimension to a wall. Similar to wallpaper except you can paint it and easily change the mood of a room.
Here’s a great example of using a favorite color to change the mood of a room.
This kitchen uses bead board for a back splash – I did the same in my kitchen. I used a higher gloss paint on my back splash which makes it super easy to clean.
Adding bead board to the lower third of a wall helps break up the expanse. This is especially effective in rooms with high ceilings.
Most people hang bead board vertically, but it’s just as attractive in a horizontal pattern. Whether used on walls or ceilings, you’ll find it’s a great way to add character to any room in your house. Not only that, but it’s economical, too.
Do you have bead board in your house, or have you thought of adding it? I think it’s a great way to add some character.
