 Installing UFP-Edge Smoke White Charred Wood shiplap to an accent wall

Get this look with our Charred Wood shiplap in Smoke White. See how many kits are needed for your project. 

Looking for an easy way to calculate how much shiplap you need for your accent wall or ceiling project? Let us do the math for you by using our coverage calculator.

Once you decide what style of shiplap best suits your home’s interior, select the product type on the coverage calculator.  Please note some UFP-Edge products are made with varying board widths and the quantity within each kit may fluctuate depending on the type of product.

Coverage Calculator - Product Selection

Once you’ve chosen the desired style, you’ll want to decide on what size shiplap to use. Generally speaking, 1x8-inch shiplap looks best in larger rooms while 1x6-inch shiplap looks best in smaller to medium-sized rooms. The 1x6-inch shiplap is the most common shiplap board size and is usually installed horizontally or vertically.


Coverage Calculator - Product Sizing

After selecting a size, you’ll want to measure the space you are looking to cover by length and width. Multiply the length by width to get the square footage, and input the result into the coverage calculator.

Once you click “calculate,” the calculator will show the number of kits required for your project.

If you are looking to add trim, which adds a nice, finished touch, you’ll want to determine how many linear feet are needed. To measure the linear feet, you’ll add the perimeter of the area you want to cover with trim. If you want to put trim on the sides of an accent wall that measures 10x20 feet, add 10 feet for one wall and 10 feet for the other wall, equaling 20 linear feet. To determine how many trim kits are needed, select “Trim Board Kit” under “Select your product” and input your linear feet, then click “calculate.” 

 Watch the video below to see how easy it calculates.

This accent wall home project will require 11 Rustic Collection 1x6x8 inch shiplap board kits and one Rustic Collection 1x4x8 inch trim board kit.

Purchase these kits online or at select retailers. Locate your nearest retailer on the UFP-Edge where to buy page.

Once you’ve received the shiplap, check out the instructions on how to install it step by step. We have both written instructions and video instructions for all our UFP-Edge shiplap products.
