Shiplap that is laid vertically is designed to make a room appear taller and is ideal in small spaces. For larger rooms, consider using a vertical shiplap accent wall to add depth and create an interesting backdrop for your furniture.

A vertical shiplap half wall is commonly used in bathrooms or mudrooms. You can even use shiplap in your kitchen as a backsplash or in your living room along the front of a fireplace. White is most contemporary color for a vertical shiplap wall, but other muted colors are an elegant option for smaller areas.
