Staggering Shiplap

Thanks to Chip and Joanna Gaines, what was old becomes new again... Shiplap. The new favorite of the design and construction industry, Shiplap, is going up on practically all exposed walls or ceilings of spaces in the interior of your home.

What is shiplap? It is a rough, sawn pine board historically used in the construction of barns, outhouses, sheds, and some historic homes. It comes in several different widths and has an interlocking rabbet joint. It is cheaper than tongue and groove and the design advantage is that it helps hides popcorn ceilings, imperfections in drywall, and solves many other design dilemmas. The main reason why I design with it is that it gives immediate dimension and texture to a space and it also gives me the ability to put a fabulous paint color on top of it to serve as a back drop for the design of the room. It's here to stay folks! Catch an episode of Fixer Upper on HGTV and you will see what Shiplap is all about.
