Wainscot or Wainscoting
A paneling style which is traditionally constructed from tongue-and-groove boards, though beadboard or decorative panels are also common. Wainscoting's original purpose was to cover the lower part of walls in houses constructed with poor or nonexistent damp-proof walls. Wainscot was brought to the United States by early English settlers. A very popular style of wainscot is "beadboard wainscot" which can give a room character and personality.
