We are gutting and renovating our cottage. I was wondering how many walls and which walls to put shiplap on in a bedroom. The shiplap will be white that has been slightly antiqued. The walls that we do not put shiplap on will have Benjamin Moore's First Light (a soft pink) on them. The longest walls are behind the bed and the wall opposite it. The room is 14' x 14'. The bed in that room will be a double pine sleigh bed. I am thinking that we should put shiplap just on one wall ( not sure if it should be on the wall behind the bed or the opposite wall OR put it on both of the above walls mentioned.
Hope you can help.
I'm assuming your wall opposite the bed is a large window ?? What ever walls you decide to put the shiplap on will make the room look longer and warmer if it's left natural. The opposite walls on the sides would probably be best to give you that warm feeling. You probably barely even see the opposite wall on
a very sunny day anyway.
Personally I would put it on the wall directly across from the doorway so you see it as you open the door and walk into the room which is usually the window wall. If not wherever the bed is going I would put it on the two opposite walls on the sides. Hope this helps you out
Hi, It's always great to make an impact as you enter the room. So the position of the bed is as important as the shiplap.It should be placed on a wall with no windows or closets, centered and that wall should have the shiplap. I would do some framed photo's or artwork in pine frame same colour as the sleigh bed. A smaller collage of 2 frames per side would break up the white board and give some contrast. You could do some matting colours that you would pull from the bedding prints or cushions. Hope this helps. Cheers Denise
