HOW TO USE SHIPLAP IN YOUR HOME

style at home

Although shiplap is all the rage right now, it is actually one of those beautiful architectural details that has been around forever. In the past, it was often found in coastal homes, particularly along the East Coast and also in lots of farmhouses (as you know if you are a Fixer Upper fan!)

Adding shiplap to a wall can be a fairly easy DIY project if you have a little construction experience, if your walls do not have vaults, angles, or lots of windows and doors, and if you know the location of your plumbing lines (sending a nail through a pipe puts a damper on DIY fun like no other.) 

I am not an avid DIY-er (although sometimes I dream I am), so hiring a carpenter is the way I usually do shiplap.  

Whether or not you DIY your shiplap or hire a carpenter, there are some things you will need to figure out before beginning:

 

If you are looking for a way to bring lots of character or architectural interest to a newer home, shiplap is the perfect option!
