No matter what design or renovation shows you watch, you’re sure to see shiplap accents throughout. Installing shiplap in your living room, entryway, or bedroom is a wonderful way to add a personal touch and brighten the space without much hassle or renovation costs. We could go on for days about the benefits of shiplap, but there’s 4 main reasons you should really consider this versatile, economic uplift.
Add Insulation & Style
Shiplap is not a newfound concept. It has historically been used for its weather protection in areas with harsh climates. Most commonly used on the exterior of homes, it wasn’t until recently that the material was used indoors. Adding shiplap to a poorly insulated room will make the space more comfortable and potentially help you save on your energy bill, while also providing a fresh look & feel.
Protect High Traffic Areas
Installing shiplap in your entryway or hallway is the best way to safeguard the busiest areas in your home. Drywall is likely to get scuffed, dinged, and bumped from time to time – Shiplap is durable and able to withstand the traffic of children and pets over the years. Outperforming drywall, Shiplap is easy to clean and touch up as needed.
Highlight An Accent Wall
Add dimension and interest to any space by adding an accent wall with Shiplap. Traditionally it’s painted white, but you could choose grey, navy, or even a dark stain – you are only limited by your imagination. If your looking to freshen up your living room or bedroom without outfitting the entire space, an accent wall is a great place to start.
Shiplap is the best way to add style and value to your home without breaking the bank. The price of your project will vary depending on whether you are looking to cover one wall versus the entire room, but overall it is relatively inexpensive and the easiest way to transform your space while getting a good return on your investment.
