If you love the shiplap and farmhouse style look, chances are you’ve dreamt about a shiplap kitchen. Maybe you’ve even gone so far as to start scouring Pinterest for ideas on how to add shiplap to your kitchen.
The truth is that honestly, kitchens are likely one of the hardest places to add shiplap. The most traditional way to add shiplap anywhere in your home is, of course, shiplap walls.
