Farmhouse Shiplap Bathroom Inspiration

January 30, 2023


Adding a shiplap design to your bathroom can be a great way to enhance your home decor. It's easy to install and a great way to add visual interest. There are also a number of ways to go about it. Whether you're trying to make a small bathroom feel larger or if you're looking to liven up a communal area, adding a shiplap wall is an affordable and surprisingly simple solution.

Shiplap is a traditional material used to build rural outbuildings. When installed correctly, it can last for many years. However, it must be properly sealed to prevent moisture from destroying the interior wood. The best part is it's inexpensive and can be easily modified to match a range of styles and designs.

A shiplap bathroom is a great way to incorporate farmhouse style. It can be a minor detail or it can be a centerpiece. Choosing the right fixtures, paint, and accessories can ensure that you're getting the most out of your space.

You'll want to choose the right type of shiplap for your project. The most popular choice is white, but you'll want to consider the color scheme of the rest of your bathroom. Darker woods can help give your design a more authentic look, while a light grey color can keep the room feeling airy.

For the best results, plan on having the drywall compound sanded and primed. To fill nail holes, you'll need a thin primer coat. Once that's dry, you'll need a second finish coat. If you're using moisture-resistant paint, you might want to use a semi-goss or satin sheen.

Another great idea is to add a shiplap backsplash. This can be placed above the splash zone for sinks, and it's a great way to safely add shiplap to your bathroom. As an added bonus, tile is available in a variety of patterns. And it's easy to clean.

Another good option is to cover your entire bathroom with a half-wall of shiplap. Depending on the size of your bathroom, you can choose to do it in one large piece or multiple smaller pieces. In the end, you'll have a very modern look with a touch of farmhouse flair.

As far as bathrooms go, they can be tricky to figure out. While it's usually recommended to keep your colors fairly neutral, a dark gray or black shiplap wall can really accent a small space. Adding a large storage cabinet with an oversized mirror can help you save space, as can wall-mounted cabinets.

A half-wall of shiplap is a great way to inject a little bit of color into your bathroom. In fact, this type of wall is a great way to showcase a fun, unique feature, such as a round mirror.

Although it might not be the most important element in your bathroom, a small accent area is a great way to show off your decorating skill. The vertical shiplap half-wall is one such example. Other examples include the vertical shiplap wall in the shower and the vertical shiplap in the vanity.
