What’s the Difference Between Shiplap and Nickel Gap Wood Siding?

If you’ve been following interior design trends over the past few years, you’ve noticed an increase in the use of wood siding to add dimension and character. Shiplap is almost a household phrase, but do you know what it is and how it’s different than other wood siding products?
Shiplap interior design style
When you see examples of shiplap on design sites and shared on social media, they are most likely referencing a general style of a wooden wall with long planks, normally painted white, that are mounted horizontally and have a slight gap between the boards.

Shiplap was commonly used as exterior siding in the constructions of houses, barns, sheds, and other types of outdoor buildings. But now you’ll see it used indoors anywhere designers want a unique feature – from kitchens to bedrooms, and offices to restaurants.

What is Circle-Sawn Wood Siding?

Reclaimed wood siding, especially barn wood siding, has a very specific look – weathered, rough, and rustic. But working with old wood is not ideal in many cases, and it can be a difficult  building material to find. If you’ve worked with old wood, you’re familiar with these challenges:

Crooked boards
Ground-in dirt
Insect invasions
And more…

Now there are lumber options that mimic the style of reclaimed wood but don’t come with the challenges.
