What is a beadboard? Most people are well acquainted with these as they are widely used throughout the house. Beadboard is a type of paneling (wall or ceiling paneling) and may cover a wall partially or entirely.

The panels are covered in a series of distinctive grooves and resembles planks which are lined vertically. The ridges between the planks is known as “beads” and that’s where the name comes from. The paneling dates back to the early 1800s and has been used in interior ever since.

Beadboard panels are appreciated for their insulation properties as well as decorative value as they can be painted any color to match the overall design. Usually the installation is vertically but for a different look a horizontal installation is also possible. The main types of beadboard are the singular boards and the sheet panels. Tongue-in-groove beadboards are more difficult to install as each one is installed individually while panels take much less time. The paneling is used in bathrooms, kitchens, bedrooms, entryways as well as for ceiling coverage.
