Woods are popular materials to build house wainscoting. There are several kinds of wood materials for wainscoting. One of them is oak wainscoting. Oak wainscoting was so expensive that only the extremely wealthy could afford to have this type of panelling installed in their homes. There is just something so classy about dark wood panels, contrasting with the flatter panelling. Dining rooms, living rooms, home offices and even bedrooms can benefit from this beautiful oak wainscoting. Most people would never even consider hiring a contractor in these hard times. But do not let the recession stop you from fixing up your dream home. There are lots of easy solutions to get great oak wainscoting at a fraction of the cost. You can do this yourself-without spending thousands of dollars on material and labor-as long as you can handle some basic tools.
Modern oak wainscoting combines thin or thick veneers over a core of stable wood or wheat board cores. Some wainscoting material is made from recycled wood or product. These veneers can be easily stained to the color you prefer or to match other details and trim in the room. When installing pre cut oak wainscoting, make sure to stain the wood before you begin the project. You cannot install wood that has not been completely dried. Leave the wood in the room a day or so before you begin your oak wainscoting project to acclimate.
