Design Trend: Shiplap All Over the House

Shiplap may be overtaking subway tile as the wall accent everyone’s talking about. There’s just something about those clean, orderly boards that makes people swoon. Many credit Chip and Joanna Gaines of HGTV’s “Fixer Upper” with popularizing the look, which they use to cover a variety of wall woes.

Since installing a shiplap accent wall is a DIY project you can accomplish in a weekend, you may even be tempted to give it a try yourself.

To get you inspired, here’s a look at how shiplap can work in every room.

No windows? No problem. Traditional white shiplap brightens up any below-ground space.

Garage

Okay, not technically shiplap, but this organization system’s horizontal lines give you the same look, and tidiness to boot.
