Shiplap is a kind of wooden board that's often used for constructing sheds, barns, and other rustic buildings. Traditional shiplap has a groove cut into the top and bottom, which allows the pieces to fit together snugly, forming a tight seal. This also gives shiplap its distinctive appearance, with subtle horizontal reveals between each piece. Lately, shiplap has become a popular choice for interior finishes too, thanks to its rustic charm and subtle texture. Whether you choose to use real, honest-to-goodness shiplap in your interior project or fake the look by applying MDF boards to your drywall it's a great way to add a little character to any room.
One of the reasons homeowners love shiplap is because it's so versatile. It can be left in its raw natural form with stain added or it can be painted over with the colors of your choice. The texture of the wood can give your home a unique look. It can be installed horizontally or vertically. Shiplap can be applied to floors and ceilings and it can be used in any room of the house from bathrooms to living rooms to bedrooms to dining rooms. Because it is so versatile, it is a trend that shows no sign of going out of style.
