DIY Shiplap Bathroom Walls
Royal® PVC shiplap saves time and money, and allows for a pre-finished clean look for any bathroom interior walls!
Let’s do this.
- Royal PVC Shiplap
- Royal 1x6 board for baseboard
- Royal Corner Guards
- Royal 2.5"x8' Prefinished PVC Chair Rail Moulding
- Construction adhesive
- Nail gun and brad nails
- Caulk and caulking gun
If you are installing over tile, wipe your walls down to ensure they are free of debris and dust. If you plan to extend your shiplap beyond the lower tile wall, nail shim pieces to ensure the shiplap at the top of the wall is flush with the bottom of the wall.
Cut your shiplap to size, squeeze a few beads of construction adhesive along the edges and middle of the shiplap plank.
Firmly adhere the shiplap to the tile, and if applicable, shoot a few nails into the shiplap on the top of the wall to make it extra secure. Work your way around the room. Finish outside corners with PVC Corner Guards.
Add a 1×6” baseboard to the bottom of the shiplap using construction adhesive. Install chair rail to the top of the planks using brad nails.
Caulk any gaps for a smooth finish. Paint in your favorite latex paint color.
