Wood paneling's having a major moment. We've written several times about the look as a clean, classic and affordable feature for walls.

If you love what this look has to offer, take a look at all the other ways you take it beyond that one surface...

Amanda's Tale of an Ugly House included the installation of shiplap just as a backsplash in her Colonial-style kitchen. It's a great affordable alternative to tile that still adds interest and texture. Since shiplap was originally intended to be as watertight as possible, it's a good choice in the kitchen.
