Shiplap is often associated with accent walls, but its versatility extends far beyond that. You can use it horizontally, vertically, or in a variety of unconventional applications that go beyond full walls. Shiplap is a fantastic way to add color, texture, and dimension to any space. With our range of colors and finishes, UFP-Edge shiplap is a suitable fit for any style and budget.


Given the endless possibilities, we compiled a list of some of our favorite ways to incorporate shiplap. 

1. Shiplap Fireplace Accents

Using shiplap around fireplaces is a great way to create a focal point within the room. Charred Wood Shiplap in Ash Gray was used in this home to create a beautiful fireplace surround.
