Board and batten trim for walls adds nuanced charm to a space that is compatible with traditional, modern, and country styles and fusions, making it the perfect choice for Ashburn and Leesburg, Virginia homes. This type of trim’s function is similar to the accenting properties of wainscoting, but different in its execution. Board and batten is marked by clearly segmented sections of wood overlay superimposed on a layer of wall trim.

Board and batten’s inception was caused by an aesthetic and structural need to cover seams left between individual wall boards. Like most trim, nowadays its role is purely for design purposes. Installing board and batten to different rooms and areas around the home brightens and visually enhances areas with contrast and light, especially when coupled with a wall of a complimenting color.

Moldings and trim are available at your local hardware store in pre-fabricated kits or may be built specifically to your home. Installing the board and batten can be a job for yourself but professionals, like Five Star Painting, can create custom additions to suit your unique design choices. No matter what styles or tastes you have, we can help you discover the look you want for your home. Below are some images to give you an idea of what your home could look like with a board and batten addition.
