MIX THE WIDTH OF THE BOARDS
A six-inch board is typically a good place to start when it comes to selecting size, but don’t be afraid to mix it up.

“I love mixed-width boards in both flooring and walls,” says Konig. “You get a relaxed look, and you really don’t notice the differences until somebody points it out.”

TRY IT IN SMALL DOSES
As mentioned before, horizontal boards can make a small space seem larger. But as with any new project, it’s worth trying shiplap in a small area before you commit to a larger portion of your home.

“Shiplap is good on every wall in a small powder room,” says Arnold. “You can also incorporate it in a backsplash or an accent wall to add texture. If you use it on an accent wall, paint it the same colors as the rest of the wall for a clean, modern feel that still offers a variety in texture.”

An added benefit of using shiplap in kitchens or bathrooms: It’s incredibly easy to clean.

BLEND IT WITH OTHER MATERIALS
Arnold suggests mixing shiplap with materials like brick, marble or concrete for a contemporary, urban aesthetic.

“Bringing in wood automatically softens the space to help counteract really cold concrete or brick, which is common in urban lofts,” says Arnold. “It’s also really great with marble or any other type of stone.”

If you have a kitchen with, say, marble counters, try accenting the backsplash with shiplap. Alternatively, if your living room has plenty of exposed brick, try one accent wall in shiplap. สถาปนิก
