Made with Stunning Acacia Wood

Acacia hardwood is an extremely strong, hard, heavy, and tough wood that boasts an impressive density of 600 kg/m3. These are walls that you’re installing, so you want a shiplap wood that provides outstanding durability. Our acacia wood provides exactly what you need.

Grown in Australia, Vietnam, as well as other Asian countries, the data proves that acacia wood belongs right up at the top of the food chain with some of the hardest and densest woods known to humankind. Acacia truly provides a natural beauty that is hard to look away from, and the best part is that it works with a wide range of design styles, including Traditional, Modern, Country, Mediterranean, and more.

Acacia wood also contains inherent oils that make Interbuild’s shiplap wall panels ideal for use in the wet conditions you find in bathrooms and kitchens. You can add whatever stain you fancy, and you’ll have a shiplap wall that boasts stellar water-resistance and reliability that will remain attractive and solid for the years ahead.

What is Shiplap?

Shiplap is a beautiful type of wooden board that used to be exclusively used as exterior siding on homes, rustic barns, and sheds. However, over the last few years, interior designers with good eyes realized these eye-catching wall panels also look fantastic when installed inside homes and residences.

Chip and Joanna Gaines, the stars of HGTV’s show Fixer Upper are especially known for their taste in shiplap wall panels, and for good reason! Installing shiplap wallboards horizontally really makes the room they’re in feel larger, as the boards naturally carry the eye around the space. And for those who wish their rooms felt taller, installing these gorgeous wall panels in a vertical fashion will draw the eye upward, effectively emphasizing the height of the room.

Do you have a new chandelier or decorative piece that’s placed in a high fashion? Well, Shiplap wood paneling can even be installed on any of your ceilings so that your guest’s eyes are drawn upwards, right towards your new centrepiece.

Better than Tongue and Groove Wood Paneling

Both shiplap and tongue and groove wood paneling are used to emulate that modern farmhouse aesthetic that so many find appealing. However, there are a few reasons why shiplap decorative wall panels are the superior choice for your next interior design project.

Firstly, shiplap wallboards’ overlapping connections allow for a slight shrinkage of wood that might result from the installation room’s climate, while tongue and groove wallboards that experience shrinkage are liable to expose gaps in the tongue and groove fitting. This can lead to an uneven wall with different sized gaps across your new wallboards. So much for an easy to maintain interior redesign.

If you’re planning on installing our shiplap wall panels to use in an exterior setting, know that shiplap is far superior to its tongue and groove brethren when it comes to water resistance. Shiplap’s overlapping planks shed water in an efficient manner, while tongue and groove wallboards are liable to deteriorate under wet conditions due to water often being trapped inside the interlocking connections. The last thing you want is to deal with rotting and deteriorating wallboards.

Shiplap wall panels are also often less expensive than their tongue and groove counterparts. So if you’re the type of person who’s always keeping an eye out for value, shiplap wallboards provide a much better bang for your buck which is great to consider when redesigning your home.

The Only Limit is Your Imagination

There’s a wide variety of projects and wall paneling ideas that Interbuild’s shiplap products are perfect for. For example, our wallboards can perfectly emulate the rustic look of a barnboard wall in your living room, or if you have a fireplace you can easily add a rustic look to its exterior with shiplap wallboards.

That farmhouse kitchen you’ve always dreamed of baking bread in within your grasp with our elegant wall decor. Install shiplap walls around your kitchen and couple them with a tasteful backsplash and you’ll feel like you’re transported back to simpler times every time you step into the kitchen.

Pinterest pages such as this one illustrate just how versatile and lovely shiplap walls are.

We hate cliches here at Interbuild, but when we say the only limit is your imagination, it really rings true.

Where to Buy Shiplap

Gone are the days where you needed to go to your local Home Depot to pick up the wood paneling you need. This website allows you to order the shiplap decorative wood paneling you need and have it shipped directly to where you need it. This is Canadian wall decor made easy.

For those of you who prefer the old school approach of going to pick up your wall panels, and maybe chatting with the intelligent store associates at the store, Interbuild also offers the option of picking up your new shiplap wall directly from the Home Depot.

Why Should I Buy Real Shiplap?

While products such as shiplap wallpaper can provide a similar aesthetic to the real thing, anyone with an eye for interior design will be able to see right through these cheaper alternatives. The look and feel of shiplap wallpaper and similar products just can’t match Interbuild’s sturdy and high-quality wall panels.

Also, you can always just purchase Interbuild’s shiplap wallboards and install them on your own as a more affordable method. If you have experience with wood products and general handyman skills, you will likely have no issues with our wall paneling. And if you need any help, we’ll always be right here to help you.

Environmentally Friendly Wall Paneling

We source the wood that goes into our beautiful wallboards from the Forest Stewardship Council, whose mission statement is, “FSC will promote environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial, and economically viable management of the world’s forests.”

The FSC arose over 25 years ago as a result of the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio failing to produce a tenable agreement to put a stop to deforestation, an issue that continues to ravage our shared earth. According to the FSC, a group of business, community, and environmental leaders banded together to create the FSC’s revolutionary concept; a voluntary, market-based approach that would seek to improve forestry practices worldwide.

This group then created the first certification for sustainable forest management, and the FSC remains to this day the most trusted sustainable forest management solution due to the organization’s committed and diverse stakeholders.

This certification is based on a variety of principles and criteria that the FSC has built its esteemed reputation on, including maintaining, conserving, restoring ecosystems, enhancing the social and economic wellbeing of local communities, upholding indigenous people’s rights, and complying with all applicable laws, regulations, and nationally-ratified international treaties conventions and agreements.

Interbuild is proud to be an FSC partner and provides some of the finest sustainably sourced wood available through all of our products - including our elegant wallboards. Our team recognizes the true value of healthy forests and our healthy earth, and we pledge to continue our environmentally friendly sourcing methods.

As such, you can be confident that when you buy shiplap wallboards from Interbuild, you are contributing towards keeping the earth’s valuable forests healthy while transforming your home into the elegant and beautiful space that shiplap decorative wall panels provide.
