Shower panels are known by a variety of names. This article explains why that may be and some of the benefits that using these shower panels could bring to your home.

If you’re thinking about completing a renovation in your bathroom or even starting a major bathroom remodel, then a key decision will be choosing the materials that you want to use. There are a range of different materials that could be the right choice for your bathroom. For instance, you might choose to use tiles. Or, if you’re looking for a more modern option that will provide your bathroom with a contemporary design, then our PVC panels could be the right choice.

PVC panels are on trend right now for home decor options and one of the biggest benefits is that they are one-hundred percent waterproof. This means that they can be used in the walls of your shower or as the main covering of the walls around your bathroom.

You might have noticed that some people refer to PVC shower panels as shower boards. There are a few reasons why this is the case and it does relate to the benefits of using these panels as part of a bathroom design.

Shower Panels Are Easy To Cut

One of the main problems with tiles is that they are difficult to reshape to fit a specific area. You won’t have this problem if you use PVC shower panels and that’s one of the reasons why people do refer to them as boards. Shower boards are easy to cut and can be prepared for any space with the tools that you likely already have in your home. This means that you don’t have to worry about calling in the professionals to prepare these shower panels for your bathroom.

It also guarantees that the installation time is kept low. You won’t have to spend hours on a project like this and instead, your new panels can be fitted in your bathroom immediately.

Shower Panels Are Strong

People may also describe shower panels as shower boards because they are both sturdy and durable. A big benefit of using shower panels in your home is that they don’t require much maintenance at all. Instead, you can guarantee that they will continue to look great for years to come and still seem as good as new when it’s time to sell your home. One of the only issues that you might have is mold marks. However, these can be washed away with a little warm water. This is completely different from tiles where mold will need to be removed with special products and it can take quite a lot of work to get rid of it.

Large Shower Boards

Of course, they might also be referred to as shower boards because they are a lot larger than people often expect. Our shower panels are designed to cover the wall from the floor to the ceiling of your bathroom or shower without any gaps. As such, they do resemble large boards that fit to your wall. Don’t forget, these panels can be added to any type of wall and since they are waterproof you won’t have to worry about the material underneath getting damaged. The boards fit seamlessly together with no gaps and once you’re finished it will look as though you only used one piece of material with no space in between. This also makes your bathroom more hygienic as there won’t be cracks where bacteria will grow and thrive.


People are often surprised at how cost-friendly PVC shower panels are. Due to this, they are referred to as shower boards because this sounds like a cheaper product. However, rest assured that despite the price, our shower panels are designed and produced to the highest standard of quality. As such, while you might save money on your bathroom redesign, you will still get the beautiful high-quality finish you hoped for.
