If you want to take your interiors to the next level by adding more dimension and texture, installing wood shiplap wall planks is not only a room changer—it’s a game changer.

Adding a fresh coat of paint to your walls may be your first thought when decorating, but adding architectural details such as shiplap planks will give your rooms more character, warmth and natural charm.

The Rustic Collection is at the forefront of the shiplap industry, and the company’s newest product, Rustic Rough Sawn Shiplap, is a cut above the rest. What makes it so special?

The Rustic Collection's Rough Sawn Shiplap added as an accent on a fireplace wall, shown here.

Superior quality: Rustic Rough Sawn Planks are made from solid Southern yellow pine. They are individually hewn with a shiplap pattern or square-edge finishing to ensure a professional yet natural look. And they surpass the competition by covering 7% more area.

Just your style: Since one style does not fit all, Rustic Rough Sawn Planks come in a wide variety of wood finishes, from rustic and reclaimed to classically modern.

Easy to install: No need to spend extra money on installation—these planks are DIY-friendly!

Responsibly forested and manufactured: The Rustic Collection’s planks are sustainably grown in the US and manufactured in a carbon neutral facility.

Since having the right hue is crucial to creating the look you want, The Rustic Collection offers its rough wood shiplap in a wide variety of natural colors: brown, charcoal, pewter and white.

The Rustic Collection’s shiplap planks were recently chosen for the master bathroom, pantry/craft room and on the fireplace wall in the Cottages & Bungalows project house in Social Circle, Georgia, for its durability and clean, rustic design. The owners wanted their home to convey the look of a “modern industrial farmhouse with architectural salvage mixed in.” They knew installing shiplap would achieve a relaxed ambience with the casual, simple style they desired.

There is virtually no limit to the versatility of wood shiplap. The owners of the project home even considered having a “statement wall” in black shiplap!

With all these possibilities and advantages, it’s clearly time to put down the paint brush and change course for shiplap!
