Do these kit come in different heights?

Do these kit come in different heights?
Asked by: Jerry
I don't believe so, but you could easily cut it down. The cut edge would be hidden in the slot in the base board or the top cap.

Can it be installed over tiles in bathroom?

Asked by: Dave
Yes, it can be installed over tiles with a good adhesive. You don't have to nail the panels and molding in place. Bathroom's are often pretty humid so you'd have to use a good adhesive. Hope this is helpful!

Could I leave my present baseboard intact, and just install this atop.

Asked by: Jodi
Probably not. The baseboard that comes with the product has a slot that the panels slide into. It is a well-designed, snug fit that helps keep the panels stable. Also, if you just tried to put the panels up with the existing baseboard, I don't think you would be to pleased with the outcome.

Is 32 inches the total height including chair rail and baseboard ? Or is that the height of the panels?

Asked by: DaveC
32 is height of panels. 36 with chair rail and baseboard. See my review for an idea on how to place higher on the wall.

5/16 in. x 5-29/32 in. x 32 in. - 8 lin. ft. MDF Overlapping Wainscot Interior Paneling Kit is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 186.

In comparing single 8ft wood panels versus this MDF paneling, I could buy 3 MDF kits for the price of 1 wood panel. The installation of the paneling is a little more time consuming, but it made it a little easier with having to work with the numerous outlets that I had along my walls. The paneling is MDF, so I am somewhat concerned with possible swelling due to moisture, with having 3 dogs and an active household, but I applied 3 coats of latex based paint to help prevent any problems with that. I used contact cement, which is probably overkill, on one section of panels. On the other wall of panels, we used finishing nails and silicone caulk. All the panels fit pretty good and there were no gaps in between each panel. I am going to purchase more kits to finish the rest of living room. Great product. Please excuse the mess in the picture, we are still remodeling the house/kitchen.

The primer was very smooth and easy to paint. I would recommend painting both sides as the panels do warp a little. I would definitely order this product again for another project.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great paneling, some damage in shipment I used this paneling in a recent bathroom remodel. The chair rails got a little dinged up during shipment and split a little on the ends. I was able to cut off those piece and get the job done. Each kit arrives in an 8 ft. long skinny box and the panels and trim are unprotected inside. The box is double-layered though. The panels themselves are thick and sturdy. They come primed and I love the size as they are easy to move around and cut. They also have a good quality look. The chair rails and base trim are primed and MDF as well. I installed the base trim first with liquid nails. Some of the walls bowed so I was careful to keep the trim as straight at possible so the panels would fit in. Once the glue set I installed each panel with liquid nails then the chair rail. I used heavy long objects to hold everything in place. They painted pretty well but be careful to get the panels as close together and flush as possible. Otherwise, a gap will show between each. The end product came out great. It was much better to work with these than the big sheets. Definitely worth the extra cost.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful! Inexpensive and adds a great look This product is a perfect addition to give a room a stylish look and depth. We've used it in our master bedroom and everyone remarks on it. It makes a difference and we love it! We didn't really need real wood wainscoting -- if we did we would've paid more and gotten real wood. This was much less expensive, easy enough for our hired handyman to install (he has the tools and the know how). It painted easily and is perfect where it is since there really won't be much traffic there. If I were to install bead board in our main hallway then I would definitely go with real hardwood since the purpose of wainscoting is actually to save walls that get high traffic and usage.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good purchase I am not a carpenter, by any means, but I needed to finish my bathroom remodel on my own, due to a large unexpected expense. I wanted beadboard wainscoting, which is what I have in my kitchen, the real wood kind. Not being a carpenter and being afraid of sharp power tools, I first tried beadboard-look wallpaper. Despite the Amazon reviews which said it looked like the real thing, It Did Not. So, I looked around and found this MDF kit for a reasonable price, it took two kits for my tiny bathroom. I think the whole thing with baseboard and top rail was only 32 inches high, which left it hiding behind my radiator and looking dumb beside my vanity. So I made it taller by installing it further up the wall. I left in place the baseboard I had put in when the plan was wallpaper. I added a decorative bit of trim board to the top of that and then another decorative piece between that bottom layer and the bottom wainscot baseboard. With those modifications, I am pleased with how it turned out. It's MDF so it cut like butter with my Japanese pull saw. I used Loctite glue for paneling and a few strategically placed nails to hold it. I counter sunk the nails and filled in with spackle. Sometimes there would be a popping out of the MDF around the nail hole, so when that happened I sanded it down and touched up the paint, which I had to do after filling the nail hole anyway. The product comes primed, I painted it the color I wanted, front and back due to it being in a bathroom, a more moist environment. I have a little sanding a filling to do yet, which you can probably see in the photo I attached.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Needed modification Used this in a bathroom thus I primed the remaining sides/edges with an oil based primer (two coats), then final coat of latex white paint (two coats). This extended my project time by a bit but seemed to make sense. The modification was that the bath had a tile floor and about a 4" tile "splash guard" base along the wall. I could have just whacked off the tile "splash guard" but instead I took the top rail, and it worked (as well as looks) beautiful installed, right on top of the "splash guard" so it is now the bottom base for the panels. Next I took the bottom base and circular sawed off 1" from the bottom and ran the bottom thru a table router to dress it up and viola I now have top rail! Of course this also extended my install time but it was a great re-use of existing paid for product and it looks great, if I do say so myself.
