Before putting on the paint make sure that your walls are painted appropriately. Shiplap boards have gaps in between each panel hence your wall’s original colour will be exposed in some places. So paint your walls with the same colours as your shiplap or with something that goes with the flow.
Next, measure the size of the wall so that you can determine the correct size of shiplap boards will require.
If possible, mark the studs on the walls. It is best to nail your boards to these studs
After marking your walls and demarcating them with a chalk line, place the first shiplap board. Start from the bottom.
Gradually go up attaching the baseboards. If you want you can place and cut the boards to stagger cut ends. Perform this from row to row and repeat until you reach the end of the row.
Your shiplap board are successfully installed. Cheers!
1x6 is the most preferred width for shiplap boards.
For designing shiplap boards, mainly pine and MDF are used.
Shiplap is mainly used for decorative purposes nowadays. These are meant to provide a coastal or farmhouse style to a room.
Shiplap can be a great addition to bathrooms. Whether you want them on the wall or ceiling they will look fine.
