Oak Panelling
Bookmark and Share

image 1The Arts & Crafts period saw a return of oak panelling. This was often seen in hallways and landings which were designed to be seen as a central living space. Oak panelling offered a grand but low maintenance material that withstood the daily dirt and wear and tear often found in busy entrances. The panelling would be made from vertical oak boards surrounded by a frame and topped with a plate rail. The panels covered the lower half of the wall or could be found to cover the two thirds of the wall. This style of wall covering continued to be popular in the traditional style house up to the late 1930's.
