Shiplap Appeal

You’ve probably found your way here because at some point you’ve seen or heard about shiplap; the gorgeous look that has taken over interior design. So what is shiplap? Picture a beautiful rustic building or a barn you’ve passed by with charming character. Chances are, what caught your eye was the style created by shiplap method. To achieve this look, grooves are cut into the top and bottom of long wooden planks. These grooves (or rabbets) allow the planks to fit together with a slight overlap. Originally, shiplap was designed in this way to ensure stability and strength; enabling the boards to form a water-tight seal. This was hugely beneficial when building barns and sheds. You may have also seen shiplap creating a very subtle space between each piece, which has become the desired effect you’ve been eyeing.

Stikwood:

Stikwood is an interior design dream come true. A creation born from the belief that design can be resourceful as well as beautiful, the first Peel and Stik reclaimed wood was introduced to the world. While offering the shiplap look and feel, Stikwood provides an incredibly simple way to install this desired look. Stikwood panels utilize reclaimed wood and sustainable wood planking responsibly sourced from the US. These planks are easy to size with a handy utility knife or saw, while the self-adhesive back means no need for a messy weekend!
