Architectural Details: Shiplap Paneling

One of my favorite architectural elements in a home is chunky wood paneling (known as shiplap or a similar tongue and groove paneling). Sigh. It makes my heart smile!

Fall House Tour - Kitchen Paneled Wall and Command Center - The Inspired Room

When we remodeled our kitchen (above), I was so excited to start (slowly) adding the elements of character I really wanted in my new house. I really missed all the chunky woodwork from our older houses, so of course adding more character to this house has made me feel so much more at home! I can’t wait to add more when the budget allows.

I have visions of painted wood walls and ceilings everywhere in ALL THE ROOMS! But for now, I’m happy with my walls through this little hallway and my entry.

Tongue and Groove Paneling

Our tongue and groove paneling looks like the above photo, before it is installed. You can find it at a lumber yard or your contractor can order it for you. It is long planks of wood (ours is pine) with grooves that fit the planks tightly together. Our planks had additional beadboard notches on the front side, so we turned ours around backwards (as a personal preference) so the front of the wood would be flat in between the grooves.

The paneling can be installed horizontally or vertically and painted or left natural. I love the craftsmanship of it and how solid and chunky it is!

Today I rounded up a few of my favorite shiplapped rooms for inspiration! Do you love shiplap, too?
