I don't know what the material is but the walls look to be
covered in a ship lap type siding with a decorative edge
between each joint. It may be some type of man made material
since it is in a bathroom and subject to high humidity.
This is all a guess based on a picture.

Do you think I could use SYP 1x4 S4S for this sort of look?


RE: Wall material help

You could. The results would depend on the grade of lumber
and the environment in which it will be used.
Number 2 grade would be as low as I would go and I would
not use SYP in a wet or humid area to avoid rot and/or mildew.
