Do you watch Chip and Joanna Gaines on Fixer Upper? If you answered yes, then you’re well aware of what shiplap is. If you answered no, you still might know what it is. I love watching Fixer Upper on HGTV and wish Joanna would come decorate my house. She uses shiplap freely in houses that she and Chip renovate and I think it adds charm to any room. I didn’t see shiplap listed on any interior design trends lists for 2016, but I think you’ll see more of it in years to come.
When paired with pretty wallpaper, shiplap adds cottage charm to an entryway.
Shiplap walls in a mudroom look earthy with a brick floor. Wire baskets on the wall create easy drop-off spots when coming and going.
Shiplap walls create appeal all their own and don’t require a lot of artwork to make the room look beautiful.
In this entryway, it pairs beautifully with architectural trim on the lower half of the wall.
Round mirrors are a great addition to walls with horizontal shiplap.
Rather than wrap a fireplace with brick or stone, why not give it a treatment of shiplap?
Nothing says “farmhouse” like shiplap, and this kitchen proves you can’t have too much farmhouse style.
Left unpainted, it creates rustic appeal and adds warmth to any room.
When white painted shiplap coats walls and ceilings, the result is a refreshing beach-y feel.
It’s a great choice for the bathroom … and look at that tub! That’s what I call a true soaking tub!
This bedroom oozes farmhouse charm with its architectural walls, pendant lighting, and an iron bed.
White shiplap allows fun colors to take center stage in the room, like this coastal bedroom.
And finally, painted shiplap pairs beautifully with warm woods. Whether you like shiplap or not, you can’t argue the transformation it lends to any room. I’m hoping to add it to my home in the near future … preferably the family room where we spend the most time!
