Board-and-Batten Siding. The board-and-batten look, originally associated with farmhouses, is showing up on the exterior of homes of all stripes -- as you can see in some of Houseplans.com most popular new designs, like Plan 430-156, above. It’s also being used for decoration inside homes. Batten strips add texture to walls, notes Binkley. They also add “solar animation,” he says, by casting shadows on the wall. In the classic look, 1x2 batten strips run vertically over siding boards. “But I’ve seen them turned at an angle to create a diamond pattern,” says Binkley.
