Shiplap is a versatile material that can transform a space into a comfortable farmhouse retreat, beachy retreat, or contemporary haven. Depending on its use in a room design aesthetic and desired rustic or organic appearance, shiplap can either remain natural wood finish for rustic feel or be painted to add color accentuating its overall design aesthetic. In this blog post we’ll highlight 5 favorite ways shiplap can add character and enhance its design aesthetic in bedrooms.
Shiplap adds the perfect rustic-chic touch to any bedroom, be it as an accent wall or stylish headboard. A dark shade gives a modern and sophisticated vibe; go light for an airier, modern vibe. The unique texture stands alone or can be combined with other decorative pieces such as wallpaper or artwork to make a striking statement.
Wainscoting is one of the classic ways to incorporate shiplap into a bedroom, adding dimension and visual interest to the space while providing the ideal canvas for bedroom decor ideas. Shiplap wainscoting can be painted any color you please from soft sage green to classic duck egg blue or even neutral beige for the perfect touch!
Shiplap can also be used as an eye-catching headboard in the bedroom, creating a stunning focal point with tufted headboards adorned with elegant mirrors, artwork or plants to make an eye-catching display and luxurious space for unwinding after an eventful day. This innovative headboard idea will impress guests and provide luxurious yet relaxing nooks to relax after each hectic day!
Shiplap can make an attractive alternative to the standard fireplace surround, adding extra warmth and coziness to your bedroom.

Shiplap ceilings offer an elegant yet cost-effective solution for replacing popcorn ceilings in powder rooms or other small spaces. Installation can easily be accomplished within a weekend project and will make any room feel fresh and welcoming.
