Trends: Shiplap

Let’s shiplap the world, shall we? If the designers and folks that I follow on Pinterest had their way I think we would. Even I can’t wait to clad something in shiplap or painted tongue and groove paneling, I really wanted to do the bathroom at the Grout Cottage renovation but decided to cut cost in the end.

You can install shiplap in just about any room you’d like. If the image of shiplap doesn’t immediately come to your mind, let Google define it for you–

Fit boards together by halving so that each overlaps the one below OR boards fitted together in this way, used for cladding.

The definition didn’t exactly clear up the confusion for me so let’s switch to the visual part of this presentation.
