Inspiration For All Things Shiplap

Inspiration For All Things Shiplap

Shiplap became popular around the early days of HGTV’s hit show, Fixer Upper, however it was not always used for making a room feel rustic and timeless.  Shiplap is made up of wood boards, traditionally stacked on top of each other horizontally, and was originally used in homes to keep out wind and water. It was never actually meant to be seen.

Today you can add shiplap to any room, whether it be in a kitchen to give it a warm farmhouse style flare, or in a living room for a modern cozy twist.  You can see shiplap being installed in all types of ways and painted an array of different bold colors.  You don’t always have to stack the boards horizontally, like how they are typically used; you can spice up a space by laying shiplap vertically or even in a chevron pattern!  Below I am highlighting some of the ways I have incorporated shiplap into our designs that hopefully will inspire you to think of different ways you can modernize shiplap in your home!

P.S: You can pin the following design selections to Pinterest; toggle your mouse over the top left corner of the image to see the red and white ‘P’ pop up and then simply click on it!

TRADITIONAL – HORIZONTAL SHIPLAP:
