Why I love the look of shiplap!

If anyone has every seen the famous HGTV show Fixer Upper, you have seen shiplap plenty of times! I have to agree with Joanna when it comes to shiplap. It is simply beautiful.

Don't know what shiplap is? It's a rough-sawn pine paneling often used in barns and historic homes.

There are certain times when I love it more though. Like when it's used to define a certain space. This is great for the homes that have an open floor plan and need to separate spaces. 

Not usually a fan of really dark walls, but this slate color works great with the stark white - also love the shiplap wall treatment::

In small spaces! Most small spaces need to feel sleek and clean in order to not feel so tiny. Shiplap is a great way to give a room character without making it feel smaller than it already is!

I love the natural look of restored shiplap. If you really want add a sense of character to your home, using natural restored shiplap is by far the best!

A great way to use just a touch of shiplap would be for a wall accent. Putting it on just one wall is a great way to enjoy the texture and design and keep it in the budget!

My last favorite place to see shiplap is above the fireplace. It really adds to the focal point of the fireplace and is a great background for any picture you hang there.

Do you love shiplap? Where would you put it in your house?

Great post, but you might want to add an important piece of info: what is shiplap? I did go look it now I know. But if you don't know what it is, it's hard to tell what in the pictures is being talked about. said...

Thanks you @Gale - great point! I added a quick description towards the top!
