At Floors To Walls, we offer an extensive range of bathroom shower panels. This post explains in more detail exactly what shower panels are and the types of shower panels that are available to buy.
What are bathroom shower panels?
Bathroom shower panels are panels typically made of a synthetic material such as PVC or acrylic. These panels are fitted onto the walls of the bathroom around the shower. On top of protecting the walls against water damage, bathroom shower panels can provide a beautiful aesthetic touch - you can buy them in a range of textures that emulate everything from stone to wood. These panels are a fresh and modern alternative to traditional tiles.
Why choose bathroom shower panels over tiles?
Tiles are the most popular wall surface choice in bathrooms. Like shower panels, they’re waterproof and fairly durable. However bathroom shower panels can have several advantages over tiles, potentially making them the better choice for your bathroom. Some of these advantages include:
Other advantages of bathroom shower panels
Like tiles, bathroom shower panels are waterproof. This means that you don’t have to worry about any water damage being inflicted to your walls. Plastic shower panels tend to offer better water resistance than laminate wood shower panels.
Bathroom shower panels can be used to more freely customise the appearance of your bathroom. They can be made to look like stone or they can be made to look like wood. You can even buy shower panels that look like tiles (a great option if you like the look of tiles but want to take advantage of the benefits of shower panels).
Shower panels may be made of plastic but they have eco-friendly benefits. They can provide added insulation to your walls to help reduce heat loss. They are also lead-free.
What are some of the different types of bathroom shower panels?
Bathroom shower panels tend to be made of one of three materials. These include laminate wood, PVC and acrylic.
PVC and acrylic tend to offer more water resistance than laminate wood. The most popular tends to be PVC because it is one of the easiest to colour and shape - it can be practically designed to look like any other material.
Some of the materials and textures that PVC can be used to emulate include:
- Distressed oak
- White marble
- Bronze tiles
- And even Roman mosaic
Your bathroom shower panels don’t even have to look like a natural material. If you want to give your bathroom a more futuristic look, you could opt for a synthetic white gloss or sparkly effect.
