Product Description

The Classic Cottage style combines two of our most popular designs into one beautiful panel system. The simple design elements of the Classic American flat panels are now combined with the crisp rounded double bead design of Classic Beadboard in our two-tiered wainscot system. The result is a refined casual design inspired by the architectural styles from the late 17th to the early 20th centuries.

The system includes beadboard Panel Sets in either 23” or 31” heights used at the bottom, combined with 12”x12” flat Panel Sets and corresponding stiles for the top.  To complete the design,  a 96" length of shoe molding, base rail, intermediate rail, top rail and top cap are included.  The completed installation will be close to either a very dramatic 48” or 56” in overall height with our standard kits. Other heights are available per custom order request.classic-cottage-components.jpg


Classic Cottage is manufactured using select grade-A veneer, oak, maple or cherry, laminated to a stable engineered wood core. If you want the finished installation to be painted our primed paintable option is the way to go. Classic Cottage is available ready-to-finish or factory-finished in white paint or several standard stain colors. Or for an up-charge, we will match the stain color you specify.

Classic Cottage wainscoting systems combine two of the most widely used styles---raised and/or flat panels with beadboard to create a truly impressive enhancement of any room.


Beadboard traces its roots to 18th- and 19th-century Europe where it was used in less formal homes and spaces, particularly vacation cottages. On the other hand, raised panels first appeared in the 17th century in the more formal Georgian, Federalist and Queen Anne styles, while in the 19th century the flat or “recessed” panel took root in America in the Shaker, Prairie, and Arts and Craft styles.


The combination of the more formal panels and the less formal beadboard renders Classic Cottage appropriate for any room in the home. However, specific room suggestions would include less formal gathering areas like kitchens, entry ways, guest bedrooms and family rooms.

The 4-foot and 8-foot Classic Cottage kits are sold only in standard sizes, and we do not need a Design Request Form for these.
