Shiplap is a cool design element that you may want to consider when sprucing up or upgrading a room. But first, what is shiplap? Shiplap is decorative wood planks that interlock similar to tongue-and-groove but with a tighter, overlapping fit. These wooden panels are easy to install, create an effective seal, and are an increasingly popular style choice for the inside of homes—from modern to rustic. It’s no surprise that designers and homeowners are showcasing creative ways to use shiplap walls.
Shiplap in the Bathroom
Though it takes a bit more thought and preparation to install shiplap in the bathroom than it does in other rooms, it's worth the extra steps. You'll want to ensure the planks are treated against moisture before you attempt this look—but if you're tired of tile, shiplap is a unique alternative.
Shiplap in the Bedroom
Your headboard is the focal point of your bedroom, and shiplap forms the basis of a rustic yet refined look that can be done in a weekend. Or, you can use it on the wall behind your existing headboard for a cool look.
Shiplap in the Kitchen
You can give your kitchen a touch of rustic chic with planked walls. It adds a cottage appeal keeping the most used space in the home feeling both casual and antique.
Shiplap in the Entryway
Whether you have a small foyer or you have room to play with, shiplap can help create dedicated spaces and visual interest in your entryway.
Shiplap in the Living Room
Covering your living room walls with shiplap will give your space a farmhouse or coastal vibe. Choose your shade of white depending on how much natural light your room has and paint away. The linear pattern means you don’t even need to hang pictures for the space to feel finished.
When it comes to easy décor that makes a statement, consider shiplap. For more information on the South Florida lifestyle and the finest homes in the Palm Beaches, contact a Tauber Real Estate Services specialist at 561.626.4633.
