Wainscoting is a decorative wall covering that extends partway up the wall. It’s typically done in wood and in spaces such as the dining room. However it can also work in the bathroom as a way to add character. If you want to incorporate tile but are on a budget try tiling from the floor up and then paint the remaining wall with a gloss or semi-gloss paint for easy clean-up. A potential benefit of using tile wainscoting is that it can also work as a backsplash if it extends high enough above the sink.
