Wood paneling’s having a major moment. We’ve written several times about the look as a clean, classic and affordable feature for walls. It also recently showed up in Design Manifest’s cottage kitchen makeover (part of the One Room Challenge) above. If you love what this look has to offer, take a look at all the other ways you take it beyond that one surface…

Olive green cabinets and a shiplap-covered range hood FTW, from Jenny Komenda at Little Green Notebook.

This converted warehouse, designed by Architects EAT, has both industrial elements and classic details like the paneled cabinetry throughout the space.

Add texture and interest to a kitchen island with affordable wood planks. This kitchen is from Townsend Interiors.

A breakfast nook with shiplap- covered banquettes makes the space pretty seamless. From Elements of Style.

Advanced Renovations used shiplap on these sliding barn doors leading to the pantry in this large traditional kitchen.

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.
