So when we replace our walls, I do not want to use drywall. I know what I want to use, however I do not know the name of it and therefore I don't know what to look for when I go to the home improvement center. I've seen it in houses as well as restaurants. It resembles paneling, but doesn't appear to be made of wood. Vertical planks about 3-4 inches wide all equal length. It's not beadboard. I'm thinking it's some sort of masonite, but I'm not sure.
You see it in a lot of cottage/bungalow style homes, Red Lobster, and if you watch the Young & the Restless, Nick & Phyllis's tackhouse. I feel ridiculous for describing it this way, but I don't know how else to describe it.
