What You Need to Know About Installing Shiplap in Your Bathroom
Is it safe to install shiplap in my bathroom? Many DIYers want to know if it is safe to install shiplap in their bathroom or in other areas often associated with high levels of humidity or moisture. No one wants to worry about mildew, decay or a peeling paint surface.
Yes, you can install shiplap in your bathroom! With that being said, you won't want to use it in a place where it is frequently exposed to water. It is not meant to be used as a shower surround. If you are using our Timeless primed shiplap, we recommend applying a coat of mildew-resistant paint. You can also apply a clear coat sealer to the boards to give them an additional layer of moisture protection. This is not necessary if you are using our prepainted shiplap boards, but we do recommend applying wood sealant on any exposed edges or seams to ensure moisture resistance. It is important to make sure your bathroom is properly ventilated for continued protection against wear and tear.
Does Your Bathroom Need An Upgrade?
Shiplap can be a fantastic added feature in a bathroom when it is applied as a wainscoting application, ceiling, sink backsplash, or accent wall. Not only is it a budget-friendly home project, but it adds a large amount of texture, color, and dimension for a minimum amount of money and time. Shiplap just might be your answer to your bathroom upgrade project.
