Embrace shiplap, the wide wooden boards that have historically been used to construct barns and older homes and a design favorite of HGTV’s “Fixer Upper” stars Chip and Joanna Gaines. Allison Worley, senior designer at Atlanta's Haven Design Works, installed shiplap in her bathroom and painted it in Sherwin-Williams Agreeable Gray. Shiplap can be done as an accent wall or installed along the entire room. Haven Design Works owner Donna Mathis adds that putting shiplap or tile just behind a vanity mirror can change the whole look of a bathroom.
Shiplap walls and wooden bookshelves give the living room a touch of farmhouse style. To achieve this look, The Red Egg Design Group floated the wall forward, then covered it with shiplap and lined the back of the shelves with grasscloth.
A chic but rustic master bathroom with a timeless shiplap wall treatment, honed floor tiles that lead to a white dual bath vanity adorned with polished nickel hardware and a white quartz countertop finished with rectangular sinks.
This mudroom features a simple locker design that has space for everyone. Tile floors can take the abuse from kids, pets and wet shoes. White shiplap is adorable with the traditional coat hooks. The blue pendant light is a charming touch of color.
Designer Karen Swanson of New England Design Works used found plywood to create unique walls that resemble shiplap siding. A stunning round chandelier with Edison bulbs is a charming edition to the room.
A closer look at the living room fireplace reveals a custom shiplap surround, which Bria Hammel Interiors added to breathe new life into the old feature. Meanwhile, two chairs with a small blue pattern complement the artwork and the area rug.
The living room of the newly renovated Magnolia House bed and breakfast has been completely transformed. Walls were removed to open the space, new windows and flooring were installed and shiplap walls now brightens up the space, as seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper.
Though the home was essentially gutted from the ground up, the design team used reclaimed wood beams and shiplap walls to preserve its sense of character and charm. They then layered in neutral furniture and rugs to create an inviting space for the owners.
Shiplap is a uniting design element in this living room, cladding the fireplace surround and vaulted ceiling. The horizontal lines are echoed in the extended-length mantel and the base of the built-in window seat and are continued throughout the open living space, which includes the kitchen.
In the original sunroom, views were blocked by old sliding doors with mullions. Those were removed and replaced with large windows, opening up vistas of the lake and the mountains beyond. The white armchairs can swivel to take in the view.
Distressed, reclaimed wood planks line the pitched ceiling to add texture and visual interest to this staircase. Iron lantern wall sconces give the space a cozy, inviting farmhouse vibe. A wall of windows keeps the stairs from feeling closed-off or dim.
