Shiplap cladding is a practical type of cladding that is designed to create a pleasing aesthetic effect. They are usually designed to connect via an overlapping ‘rabbet’ joint that helps to create the shiplap illusion. They usually have a distinctive reveal between the boards that create the look that most people are looking for.
This makes it quite different from the other cladding that we sell at Bliby Plastics but its style makes it an incredibly popular choice, particularly for those looking for interior cladding. The install is also quite different, and we wouldn’t advise using shiplap cladding for spaces that need a tighter seal, but it does make a practical choice for your home.
Understanding the Benefits of Shiplap Cladding
Can Make a Room Feel Bigger
One of the best things about shiplap cladding is the sheer style that it can bring to your home. Most people would consider installing the shiplap horizontally because that’s the traditional style but we’ve found that installing it vertically is often better. Vertical installation really helps to emphasise the height of your room, making it feel larger, which is always something that you want from your interior design.
Having a small room can be a decorating conundrum because you don’t want to overfill it or create any wasted space. But the use of vertical shiplap cladding, particularly in a light, bright colour, allows you to create the illusion of more space and give you a chance to style the room just the way that you want.
Shiplap works in Every Room
Shiplap cladding is unfussy and stylish, which means that it is a ‘cross-aesthetic’ style that suits all sorts of settings. This means that you’ll probably really benefit from the shiplap aesthetic, no matter what style you have in your home. This is because it adds character and style but it’s still clean-cut and smooth.
You can use it to add it into your vintage eclectic style, pairing it with vintage chairs and elegant light fixtures to pull together an easy, relaxed look. Or you can add it into a minimalist design because it will add a little bit of character while still creating something that is clean and minimalist. It really is the best of both worlds.
UPVC is a Practical Choice
Using uPVC shiplap cladding over any other material allows you the freedom and flexibility that you’re looking for. UPVC cladding can be altered to suit your design aesthetic and its imitation timber offers you all the style benefits with none of the drawbacks of using timber. If you have a particular idea for the style of imitation timber in mind for your shiplap cladding, then you can find something similar to what you’re visualising on our website. We’re committed to providing a broad range of shiplap styles, allowing you to make the most of this fashion trend.
Want to Transform your Home?
One of the benefits of the uPVC shiplap cladding is the fact that you can use it both inside and outside the home. This makes it really easy for you to keep you to transform your home into a stylish place, particularly as it’s so easy for you to install the panelling. Its strength and durability also make it a practical choice because it can stand up to the toughest weather conditions and the impact of heat and water in a bathroom or kitchen. It’s the perfect choice for you, and they are easy to purchase through our website.
