When it comes to looks, what are the most vital parts of the bathroom? Well, the beadboard is definitely one of them.
Also called bathroom wainscoting, the beadboard is something that plays a role in deciding the results of a decoration project. Of course, it comes in several different forms, each of which offers its very own unique type of beauty.
Creating a beautiful beadboard is something that can get tricky sometimes. How easy or hard it is really depends on the complexity of the design you choose. It also depends how good your preparations before executing the plan are.
If a beadboard is something you figure can be a nice addition to your bathroom, here are a number of wainscoting bathroom ideas you could try, or should I say, you definitely have to try!
1. Cerulean Wainscoting for a Bathroom That Never Forgets Its Nature
A bathroom’s nature is to always be in touch with water. It’s because a bathroom is never a bathroom without water to offer.
Thus, it’s fair to say that a bathroom’s color is the color of water by nature. While some might argue about the real color of water, many agree that blue represents the element.
It means that if you want your bathroom to never forget its nature, you can simply create a beadboard in a color that represents water. Cerulean is one of the best colors for this purpose so make sure you include it in your options.
2. Pear Bathroom Wainscoting for a Soothing Effect
If a soothing effect is what you’re trying to achieve, pear is probably a color you should pick. What to combine with the color? Well, white should do!
Pear is a soothing color and if you combine it with white, which is a really bright color, you can create a bathroom with a wonderful ambience.
What white brings to the room is ample brightness while pear makes the room beautifully soothing. Together, they make staying in the room feel both bearable and comfortable. You won’t want to get out of the room as soon as you enter it, which is good!
3. When Fuchsia Meets Black and White
Are you a fan of feminine bathrooms? If you are, you should consider coloring your bathroom walls in a shade of pink. Fuchsia, or maybe hot pink, should be amongst the best colors to pick.
Then what do you need to pair with the pink shade? Well, a white beadboard will be more than an awesome pair for it.
Try combining the two with a mirror with black ornamental frames and you’ll have a gorgeously feminine bathroom with a touch of classical look, which is really beautiful.
4. Daffodil Walls and White Wainscoting for a Homey Bathroom
For a homey bathroom, there are quite so many colors to choose from. Daffodil, a lighter shade of yellow, is one of them.

Here, you can go the simple way. A white beadboard should be more than enough to accompany daffodil walls to create an undeniably homey bathroom.
5. A Pink Beadboard for an All-Pink Bathroom

6. When Your Wainscoting Loves the Nature
If natural elements are what you’re always in love with, make sure your bathroom feels the same way. A bathroom reflects the owner’s values and if you love something, it most likely does as well.
One way to have your beadboard reflect your love for nature is by creating a wooden beadboard. But what to do to make it close to nature?

To achieve this purpose, you can simply color your walls in red. But what about the beadboard? Should you color it in red, too? Well, maybe not!

Loving gray so much and wanting to create a dream all-gray bathroom? Well, it’s more than possible and it could be a dream so easy to realize.
Here are some steps you could follow! First, color every wall in your bathroom in gray. Then make sure your ceiling is also gray and use gray tiles for the floor.
Done? Now just finish everything by creating a gray beadboard. Whoa, whoa, whoa, hold your horses! Don’t just paint the beadboard with the same shade of gray you pick for the walls.
A lighter shade of gray will do better than one that’s exactly the same with the one coloring the walls. It will prevent your bathroom from looking too boring with just the same color all over.
22. A White Beadboard for a Classy Bathroom
Wishing for a classy look to grace your bathroom? You can create such look on your own without having to overexert yourself.
First, just create a beadboard and color it in white. Then paint your walls in a blue shade, maybe cerulean. But make sure you don’t paint all parts of your walls in said shade of blue.
Make sure you spare some parts on your wall and add an extension of your beadboard on those areas. This way, your wall will not be simply cerulean, which is good.
The next step to take is installing black wall hangers and a sink with a black ornamental base, or feet. Creating a classy look in a bathroom is never a hard task if you just know what to do!

25. When Dark Blue Meets Bright White
A fan of simple yet elegant bathrooms? How about building your own elegant bathroom that doesn’t require you to do too many complicated stuffs to make it a reality?
