Wainscoting in the Downstairs Bath
Once the tile was done, we were ready to install the wainscoting. We decided to go with a PVC wainscoting due to the exposure to water and to humidity in the bathroom. The PVC wainscoting set had matching base molding and chair rail molding. And best of all, it did not need to be primed or painted. To attach it to the walls, we used construction adhesive and also nailed it with 18 gauge nails with our nail gun.
Overall, it came our really well. And it looks like painted wood, so its hard to tel that it is PVC.
We added plinths to the door ways and base molding in the laundry room.
