Are you wondering if shiplap wood is the right decision for your home project?

Most people love shiplap and I’m right along with them.

Chip and Joanna Gains of Fixer Upper literally created #shiplap. It’s pretty rare that I actually like something on HGTV because it’s not relaxing for me to watch – after all, it’s work for me. But I do like Fixer Upper because of its classic design sense. But what I don’t like about it is the complete lack of reality about pricing – especially in relation to New England.

Shiplap is one material that they use all the time and there is a good reason why – it’s easy, inexpensive, looks great and is flexible with multiple finishes and applications.

White wood with Carrara marble is a classic, simple and beautiful look. It can be used on the walls or ceilings. The use of a wood wall in any area adds texture, warmth and dimension. Installation is simple and fairly pedestrian. Think about how adding shiplap to your space would bring an exciting yet relaxing interest.
