Hi Guys,

Getting to the next stage of my bathroom reno and its beadboard wainscoting. I am buying the 4 x 8 beadboard sheet and will cut to 38" with a 7" baseboard trim and a 2 or 3" top trim. Need some advice on the best way to keep everything on the walls.

Studs are on 24" centers.

Should I:

Mark the stud locations, nail into them when I can and glue the rest to the gyproc?

OR

Cut out a horizontal 4" or so wide strip along the walls of gyproc and replace with 1/2" plywood for a nailing surface. 2 strips maybe? More work but I want to be safe.

Let me know if gluing and using the studs is enough or if there are better ways.

Cheers

I made some 48" tall half walls for my corner shower. So my beadboard will be a total of about 48". Because it's higher than maybe a standard bearboard, I was beefing up the top rails and base. Maybe I will play around the with the two. maybe 4" top and 6" bottom?
