Shiplap walls are something that have been around for a long time, but we’ve just been noticing an increase of designers using shiplap, and we love it! Shiplap was originally used on the exterior of homes and owners of old construction homes might actually discover original shiplap underneath their wallpaper or drywall (lucky!) Shiplap is generally installed horizontally, but can be installed vertically and in various widths.
There are a variety of ways to achieve this look whether you use tongue in groove planks or even siding. It’s one of our favorite architectural details to add structure, dimension, interest and to create a clean and polished look. It is fairly inexpensive, so it’s the perfect way to get detail without breaking the bank. We found this DIY Shiplap Walls tutorial here, if you are feeling like taking on a weekend project. Use it on a feature wall, on the ceiling , halfway up the wall or throughout the whole room; all can make a room feel clean and complete.
We’ve rounded up some of our favorite shiplap walls, so hopefully you can get some inspiration if you’re thinking about installing shiplap into your own home.
Where would you add shiplap in your home?
