A great way to add variation throughout you house it to install a fresh layer of beadboard. Although you may think it is outdated (it has been around since the mid-1800’s!) there are actually a lot of way to spruce up and modernize beadboard to fit your personal style.
Revamping the Old:
Consider what you know about where beadboard is typically found. Maybe it is in your grandmother’s house, or in a fixer-upper shed. Well, we know how to style beadboard to match your style. Think of the backsplash in your kitchen. Now imagine thinly spaced vertical beadboard making its way from your countertops up to your cabinets and around your island. A nice cream to flow with your cupboards. Or perhaps you think of your living room and imagine beadboard covering the ceiling, allowing for subtle contrast between that and the flat walls. Finally, imagine your awning outside hosting thickly spaced apart beadboard, prefect for a farmhouse flair. Wherever there is a boring space in your house, beadboard can find a home.
Beadboard has stayed prevalent throughout the times for numerous reasons. For one, this material is extremely versatile. It can be used vertically or horizontally, on your walls or on your ceilings, indoors or outdoors. Beadboard is remarkably durable as well - with some products being able to resist rain, fire, and even wood-boring insects! Because Beadboard is flat on the back it allows for a seamless installation process, no need to apply a base of drywall first! Along with that, the product comes already aligned to pair with another plank and able to be nailed straight to the wall without worry about any funky gaps between boards.
Beadboard pricing can fluctuate a lot, depending on the quantity and quality of material you prefer. Remember though, spending a little extra can save you money regarding storms, pests, fires, and more. However, because beadboard comes in sheets, it is much more seamless to repair it than either wallpaper or paint. You do not have to strip or repaint the wall multiple times due to chips or dents. If one happens to break, you can simply replace the single broken panel. This means less money spent on repainting, filling, or re-wallpapering your walls.
Last week we worked on a residential interior repaint in Seattle as well as a residential drywall install and taping project in Sultan.
