A few years ago, I was needing to make some kind of improvement and modernize our Hallway Bathroom. The space was a creamy yellow with old outdated hardware and fixtures. I didn’t want to spend a ton of money completely gutting and redesigning the room, but it was in need of something.
I decided a modern take on Board and Batten would be ideal for the space. I decided to make mine a little higher than a traditional chair rail height and to paint in a fun bold color.
The thing is, I have had so many people rave about this bathroom and really it’s the beautiful modern board and batten wall that is the show stopper… also the wallpaper is amazing!
So, if you are in agreement with me that adding board and batten is one of the most versatile cladding techniques around then you will be thrilled that I am sharing so many inspirational Board and Batten Feature Wall ideas today!
What are board and batten walls?
Board and batten designs are a unique in that they are made up of boards that are typically placed vertically on a wall with the empty spaces between them filled in with battens as a way to create a feature detail on your wall.
This helps to add depth to the wall and give it more visual interest. This method is most often used more commonly now on interior walls.
Board and batten is typically used as a feature statement in a room or sometimes is done on all four walls, but it can also be used on larger projects like barns and warehouses.
Although it had been used more in traditional styled homes, it has taken on a new more modern look with unique spacings or heights of the boards or more bold color choices in interior design currently.
