Bathroom Decor: Shiplap

Shiplap in your Bathroom

Traditionally associated with woodland cabins and coastal cottages, the versatility of shiplap makes it the perfect choice for a bathroom. Characterized by long horizontal or vertical wooden boards, shiplap is as much at home alongside modern architecture as it is in rustic properties thanks to its crisp lines and handcrafted quality.

In this Newport Beach bathroom, which benefits from a beautifully high ceiling, white shiplap on the walls has helped to create a light, fresh space by reflecting the natural sunlight. Combined with a darker floor and a marble walk-in shower, the shiplap feels both clean and contemporary, and softens the overall look of the bathroom.

“Shiplap helps create a light, fresh space by reflecting the natural sunlight.”

Natural accessories are befitting of this coastal property, and complement the timeless, beach-like quality of the shiplap perfectly.
