“The history of wainscoting dates back centuries, when it was used to cover damp stone walls. Today, wainscoting creates understated yet refined wall designs,” says Bu Shukun, director of Architology.

TIP 1: There are many wainscoting styles, including minimalist abstract frames, contemporary sleek lines and even ornate Victorian designs. Match your furnishings for a holistic finish.

TIP 2: Ensure proportionate line work. The wall space should be scaled according to the size of the room – for example, use smaller panels in an HDB apartment.
