JENNA KATE AT HOME
Shiplap is a type of wooden board commonly used as exterior siding in the construction of residences, barns, sheds, etc.
It came down to three options: tongue & groove shiplap boards (which we used in our sons’ big boy bedroom makeover), MDF boards or luan plywood.
We were installing the shiplap in a room with a sink and toilet – no shower or bathtub. Shiplap works best in properly-ventilated rooms.
You may want to leave the planks in the room for a few days to get them acclimated to their new home. Wood that’s not acclimated to the humidity of your home can warp.
I can’t stress enough just how important it is to make sure your first board is absolutely level. If you start off crooked, your lines will be all off. And that’s not a look you want for perfect shiplap walls!
