I love beadboard but the newest trend is Board and Batten or some people just call it Panels. It’s a wonderful and simple way for you or  your contractor to add charm to your home, whether historical or new construction. Board and Batten adds character and architectural detail and looks expensive and custom.

It’s a bit more modern than beadboard because it is a cleaner look, not so busy – although you can combine beadboard with Board and Batten like this and have both.

It looks great among shabby ‘n chic décor or a bit more contemporary, which room is your favorite place for Board & Batten? (mine’s this gray office. And look, it looks like they spray painted one of those old 80’s attorney’s desk and put a sheet of glass on top. Love the wonder of a good paint)
