How to install wall panels

  • Ellie Stirk

Measure up

Arguably the most important job. Measure your wall height and make sure it is shorter than the length/height of the panel you wish to install; this will be the case for most of our panels as they are designed to run from floor to ceiling.

Measure your wall width in cm so in the example above 260cm, then divide that by the width of each panel in cm for example 25cm which in the example above gives 10.4, so you would need 11 panels. Repeat the process for each wall, alternatively simply add up the width of all your walls and then divide by the panel width.

Cut the panels to size

The beauty of these products is they are very low maintenance in terms of installation. All materials, basic tools such as a hacksaw, circular saw or even a Stanley knife can complete the job. If using a Stanley knife, simply score across the width of the panel and then it should break off in a straight line.

Installation onto Walls & Ceilings

Panels can easily be installed onto plasterboard, existing tiles or wooden framework. For plasterboard and wooden framework screws or staples will be fine, but for tiles, you will need to use solvent free adhesive.

Installing onto Ceilings

The method above also applies to ceilings, if you are fitting spotlights, bear in mind the position of the studs and leave room for any wiring or fittings. You can use hold cutters for light fittings or wires.

Using Screws or Staples

To attach using screws you screw through the lip of the panel and when your next panels slots into place, it will cover the screws. You can screw straight onto plasterboard as well as a timber framework.

Cleaning Shower Wall Panels

If you're one of the many homeowners who prefer shower wall panels to tiles, you'll want to preserve them in excellent shape.

When you don't have to deal with unpleasant grouting, you'll notice how much easier your shower wall panels were to install when compared to tiles. The best part is that they are extremely simple to maintain. Follow the professional advice in this short video to keep your new bathroom sparkling.

Things you’ll need:

  • Soapy water
  • Cleaning sponge or soft cloth
  • White vinegar or washing up liquid
  • Spray bottle

Here's how to clean shower wall panels properly

Use soapy water to clean your wall panels once a week. Dirt and grime might gradually accumulate if you do not wipe them down.

Vinegar is the most natural cleaning solution. You can dilute the vinegar with water in a spray bottle or directly apply it to your wall panels.

Remember to test vinegar on a small patch first to ensure it does not damage your wall panels in any way.

You could also use dish detergent. Before using, dilute a few drops with water. Wipe off your panels with a sponge or soft cloth and your preferred cleaning solution. Avoid using abrasive cleaning agents, scouring pads, or steel wool.

Rinse and dry the panels.

To prevent excessive mildew growth, keep your bathroom properly aired and as light as possible.
