If you keep up with any design magazines or TV shows, we can bet you’re no stranger to the popular trend of using shiplap on your walls. In an effort to inspire you on your own shiplap endeavors, we’ve compiled our top 5 favorite ways to incorporate shiplap throughout your home!
In the Kitchen:
Who needs traditional back-splash when you can swap it out for a more unique look with shiplap! The opportunities are endless: leave the wood raw for a more natural feel, paint it white to keep the kitchen looking clean and fresh, or paint it in a shade of your choosing to liven up a kitchen with an otherwise neutral color palette.
In the Bedroom:
Do you want to create a focal point that draws the eye in your bedroom? Rather than go with a traditional headboard, think about making a focal wall with shiplap. Typically, the focal wall is the wall that the bed is pushed up against, but play around with ideas and find the design that suits you and your home best!
In the Living Room:
We love the look of incorporating shiplap into a larger space! Try painting the shiplap a shade of white or a light neutral color if you have dark flooring, or flip-flop the tones by pairing darker shiplap with lighter flooring. This will create a contrast of color in the room that is sure to please the eye.
In the Entry-Way or Mud Room:
Entry-Ways and mud rooms are great spaces o incorporate a little bit of shiplap into your home without having to go overboard. Working with a smaller space can be less intimidating but can also be the finishing touch to two spaces that often get overlooked when designing spaces in the home.
In the Stairwell:
If you’re looking for a way to set apart the stairwell leading upstairs from the main floor in your home, shiplap may be just right for you! Your eyes will naturally be drawn upward, following the lines between each board, and the horizontals will widen a particularly narrow space.
We hope that our top 5 ways to incorporate shiplap into your own home inspires you to jump aboard with your own DIY shiplap project!
