Melissa’s kitchen DIY was such a success that she decided to share her tips and tricks for recreating the look in your own home. Melissa created a shiplap style kitchen by utilizing planked walls. She achieved this look by covering her walls with painted Hardiplank siding planks, as opposed to wallpaper or paint. This tough surface will stand up to the moisture and spills that happen in a kitchen. The cozy room is brought together with quartz counter tops and tile floors.
- Shiplap walls are planked walls. If applied horizontally, it ties the room together.
- Hardiplank siding planks are sold smooth without any fake texture applied to them. Cover the rough edges with trim pieces or caulking.
- If you add quality paint the planks are sturdy and water and fire resistant. Yet still have the look of wood.
