Home Spotlight: Mixing Materials in Columbus, Ohio

Why I Renovated My Bathroom Using Shiplap

Shiplap is a versatile and attractive option for adding texture, dimension and interest to a space, and in recent years, it has become quite a household name. When I came across Royal® Building Products PVC Shiplap I immediately knew it was the perfect remedy for my dated pink bathroom tile.
