Not too many homeowner’s love the idea of having wood paneling in their homes as it’s too 1970s. However, when that wood is shiplap all of the nay’s turn into excited yay’s instantly.
That’s because shiplap is a distinctive piece of lumber that overlaps the board underneath it and works great in harsh climates providing terrific weatherproofing. If a homeowner enjoys the look of a farmhouse, it can easily be created using shiplap bringing out that amazing old woodwork from a long time ago. You can use real hardwood or engineered planks to get the shiplap decor.
Shiplap creates a beautiful shadow line pattern that is so attractive that homeowners are using this siding for their indoor decor, not just for outdoor siding. Check out our 12 Shiplap Designs to Inspire Your Next Reno post to get the inspiration jumpstarted.
