If you have been around a tv at any time in the last five years, you know what the word shiplap means. Shiplap has definitely made a name for itself since the hit show ‘Fixer Upper’. The HGTV series may be coming to an end but this custom home trend definitely isn’t due to the popularity among homeowners.
Shiplap can usually be uncovered in old homes. This classic look pays tribute to historic homes. It can be recreated in your custom home with salvaged shiplap or new depending on how rustic you want the look. The beautiful design statement isn’t only for a farmhouse style home. It compliments craftsman, cape cod, french provisional, colonial and ranch homes.
This modern farmhouse has pine shiplap throughout unifying the spaces. You’ll find it incorporated on the ceilings and walls. The homeowner chose Sherwin William’s Pure White paint color which accentuates the horizontal lines. While white may be the most popular, other colors can be used to give a wall some visual interest.
