This Expo is a comprehensive list of contemporary sources for wallcoverings, paint and specialty finishes, paneling and wainscot. These materials are suitable for Bungalows and Craftsman houses, for Tudors, Spanish Revival and California homes, and for new buildings of the Arts & Crafts Revival.
A wainscot (on the lower part of the wall) gives a room depth and character. That’s especially true for formal or frequently used public spaces like a dining room or entry foyer in a bungalow, Foursquare, or Tudor Revival—or in any house of the Arts & Crafts Revival.
If you’re reading this, you probably already know something about beadboard in the bathroom and a high wainscot in the dining room, deep wallpaper friezes, and rich Arts & Crafts-era colors. The period itself, however, saw many varied wall and ceiling treatments not always considered in strict “bungalow revival” interiors.
