Here are a few ideas to inspire you.

Small Spaces

The smallest spaces in our home are often the ones that get forgotten about the most. However, these spaces can cost the least to renovate but still deliver a needed decorative element. Try lining the walls of your closet with beadboard for a custom look or even adding beadboard to your dreaded laundry room to make it a more inviting space.

Traditional Spaces

The traditional spaces in our home like the foyer, kitchen or bathroom are the spaces that get used the most and seen the most. Try giving these spaces a little makeover using beadboard. Create an area for coats and hats by placing beadboard on a foyer wall creating a backboard for hooks and a bench seat. Another great idea is to add beadboard to the walls of an outdated bathroom or kitchen island to give it an updated look.

Unusual Spaces

Now it's time to think outside of the box. Another great space for beadboard may include your ceiling. Yes you heard us right your ceiling! If you have ever had to paint a ceiling you know what a pain that can be. Try adding a stylish touch to any room of your house by adding beadboard to the ceiling.
