22 Farmhouse Shiplap Backsplash Kitchen Ideas

Shiplap Kitchen Backsplash

A shiplap backsplash kitchen perfectly accents farmhouse styles since it adds texture while still feeling warm and inviting. If you’re looking for an inexpensive and easy-to-install backsplash, shiplap is definitely the answer!

Shiplap is a design created by installing tongue and groove wood planks with small spaces between them to create depth and dimension. Since shiplap refers to the material and overall look, you can choose between various patterns like horizontal or vertical shiplap for a unique design. Vertical shiplap is especially useful to make spaces feel taller since it draws your eye upward. And since shiplap backsplash is made of wood and can easily be installed as a DIY project, it’s much cheaper than traditional stone or tile backsplash.
