Timeless Farmhouse White Dining Room and Kitchen

Because UFP-Edge Timeless Farmhouse White shiplap is easy to install right over your existing drywall, you can create a DIY shiplap accent wall for under $500.

To paint or to shiplap? 

When it comes to the costs of home improvement, painting is a relatively cheap fix. On average, you can have a professional painter put a fresh coat on the walls of a typical 10x12 room for about $640, according to Houzz. But did you know you can create a stunning shiplap accent wall in that same room for less than $500?

 Take a look at UFP-Edge Timeless Nickel Gap shiplap, for example. It’s available in three widths and comes prepainted in any of several on-trend color options. Whatever size or color you choose, you can buy it for a little over $5 per square foot – or less than $500 to accent an entire wall. Plus, UFP-Edge Timeless Nickel Gap is easy to install right over your existing drywall, so it’s a DIY project you could tackle this weekend.

Sure, fresh paint is nice. But you really get bang for your buck with shiplap! And there’s no need to tape the ceiling or worry about dripping paint on the carpet.

“This probably took less time than painting would have,” said Aspen Vanhoorebeck, a Dallas, Texas-based interior specialist who put up UFP-Edge Timeless Nickel Gap Midnight Black shiplap on one wall of her teenage son’s bedroom. 

“It’s actually easier than I thought it would be. We used a level on the first board and from then on you literally just stack it on top of each other. It’s not as hard as people think.”

How much shiplap do you need for your accent wall? This nifty coverage calculator can help you figure it out. Just measure the height and width of the wall you want to cover and then decide what kind of shiplap to install. The calculator will let you know exactly how many kits you should buy.

In addition to the smooth, clean look of UFP-Edge Timeless Nickel Gap, you might also consider the charming Rustic Collection shiplap or distinctive Charred Wood shiplap. Rustic Collection shiplap is new lumber that has been distressed, primed and painted to have the authentic look and texture of vintage rustic barn wood. It comes in two widths and in lengths of up to 12 feet, with natural and prepainted color options available. Charred Wood shiplap has been carefully burnt to highlight the wood’s natural beauty. The contrast of the dark-charred surface and underlying spruce wood grain gives it a distinctive look that stands out. The boards come with a natural tone or in any of several prepainted colors including Ash Gray, Smoke White, and Canyon.
