Different Types of Shiplap
This is a trend that has been around for a bit, but I still don’t see a lot of it, so I think it’s still growing. Adding sheets of shiplap to the base of an island quickly gives either a farmhouse or coastal feel without much effort.
Accent walls are great in small spaces where you want a big impact, but you don’t have much room. Adding shiplap in a small closet or even a mud room would add some detail without causing much work. Sometimes, seeing a design element in an unlikely space makes the intentionality of it really show.
This is a huge trend that is taking off. Wainscoting and board and batten have been popular up stairwells for ages, but now people are taking the simple line up the stairs, too.
I think a simple line next to a focal point like a fireplace adds just the right amount of cozy to go with the warm glow.
