Shiplap is on the rise thanks to farmhouse and rustic decorating styles that are very much in trend right now. But what is shiplap anyway? Shiplap is a wooden plank commonly used outdoors in sheds and barns and as siding. Each panel is milled and closely bonded to the next, creating a distinctive line between each layer.
Shiplap can be used as wall covering, ceiling decor or even to cover the floors. It is a very versatile material that can be used anywhere. Such decor can be used throughout the house and in any room. But remember that in bathrooms it should be treated against moisture. If you want to try this home decor idea and are looking for some inspiration, look no further, it’s here!
Shiplap in smaller doses
Shiplap can be used in smaller doses in your home decor: just on an accent wall or in place of a headboard in your bedroom. It gives the room comfort, texture and a welcoming feel. If you have a smaller space that you want to show interest in, paint it either a more dramatic dark or light color: navy, black, gray, pink, or another shade. Such an accent wall will make your kitchen, wall unit, home office or any other space stand out and you can make the ship’s hatch even more prominent vertically.
Shiplap throughout the space, especially painted white, feels airy and very inviting. It’s very relevant for attic rooms – cover all the walls and ceilings and your space will appear much larger and full of light. You can add warmth and coziness to the space by choosing sand and earth tones for the ship or going all black or dark blue as atmospheric spaces are very popular and trendy.
