Panels that cover the bottom half or one-third of a wall are known as wainscot panels. In earlier times, wainscot panels were used to increase the durability of the house. Nowadays, they are used primarily for interior panelling designs. 

The top of the wainscot can be designed in many different ways like a standard cap which gives a simple but contemporary look, a decorative moulding that gives a more traditional look, or a shelf that can come out a few inches and provide space for stacking items.
