If you follow popular interior design trends, you know that shiplap has become a prominent request among homeowners. Due to the increased interest, WalzCraft has added several Signature Series Door Designs inspired by this design trend.
Traditional shiplap is created by installing thin planks of wood with rabbet joinery. WalzCraft’s Shiplap “Look” Doors are a simplified version made to mimic the visual appearance of traditional shiplap. Instead of individual planks, we use Center Panel Face Routing applied horizontally to create this look.
Solid Wood Shiplap Style Panels
When looking for a natural or stained shiplap style door, we suggest pairing one of our simple Shaker, stepped, or beveled Stile and Rail profiles with our RVSCP PR324 Reversed Center Panel. The Reversed Center Panel will have horizontal gain and grooves to simulate the look of wood planks. The S951 Clinton, S958 Beckett, and S959 Kendrick samples showcase some of the recommended profile combinations, along with our CPFR 300 and CPFR 400 Center Panel Face Routs. When selecting a CPFR, you may also choose one of our standard spacing options or specify custom spacing.
Painted Shiplap “Look” Options
If you are looking for a painted Shiplap Style Door, we recommend using our Paint Grade Maple Wood Species with a Recessed or Flat MDF Center Panel. Our S960 Quinn Door is the perfect example of this combination and is finished in our Dove White SolidTone (Paint). Our horizontal CPFR options are a great way to add a little detail to the highly requested white shaker door and pair perfectly with Farmhouse Styling.
3D Laminate (RTF) Shiplap Doors
Our 1-Piece 3D Laminate (RTF) Doors are also available with Center Panel Face Routing, although there are some limitations due to the materials used. The S961 Savvy Signature Series Design pairs one of our popular beveled profiles with a flat panel and CPFR 500 v-grooves. Our sample features the Gauntlet Grey Super Matte Finish.
