DIY Board & Batten Wainscoting, but what is it? Board & Batten is a type of decorative wall treatment. Most notable to this wainscoting design application is that the batten boards run vertically with a generous amount of space in between. And is usually bordered by baseboard and chair rail trim. So what size are the batten boards and what wood is best to use? The size, thickness, and type of board are up to you depending on the scope of your project. And how much space is there between the batten boards? Again, that space allowance is up to you depending upon your project.
