Green Shiplap Bedroom Accent Wall Design

A shiplap bedroom accent wall is the perfect way to help add dimension behind your bed without breaking the bank! This simple DIY project can even make your headboard appear larger!

Shiplap is a wood paneling style that uses tongue and groove planks commonly installed horizontally or vertically. Spaces between the wood planks create lines that add texture to the shiplap. And you can easily paint a shiplap accent wall to fit the design of your room.

The wall behind your headboard is one of the hardest to style because there’s so much space. Building a shiplap accent wall is a great way to fill that space and add a focal point for the room. Whether you want a white bedroom shiplap wall for a modern look or a rustic farmhouse shiplap, this design element can work with any look.
