When looking to add an elegant yet affordable upgrade to your master or guest bedroom, a shiplap accent wall is an easy and cost-effective solution. Not only is it affordable, but you can paint it any color you please for a transitional or more contemporary aesthetic.
White shiplap walls are the most popular choice, but you can customize your choice to reflect your personal aesthetic. Bright white hues add an airy and light feeling while creamy hues offer cozier ambiance. Blue shiplap walls can work especially well in modern homes like this example from Driven by Decor that pairs the design element with black wrought iron bed frame and sconce lighting for an industrial-inspired atmosphere.
Dark shiplap walls can add depth and interest to any bedroom, too. This look makes the perfect canvas for dramatic furniture pieces or an unusual collection of antiques; in Holly Clements’ bedroom, its texture emphasized her passion for antiques while drawing attention to the ceiling beams.
An effective way to elevate a shiplap bedroom wall is installing it in a herringbone pattern. This style works especially well in transitional spaces and can serve as the perfect complement to built-in shelving or furniture pieces. Herringbone patterns become even more eye-catching if painted a darker shade like Decor Pad’s navy blue example!
If you prefer staining wood over painting over it, instead try staining instead. Staining allows you to maintain its natural texture while adding vivid hues – creating a sophisticated finish suitable for any modern bathroom space.
