Why you should use tongue and groove bathroom wall panelling

  • Adam Wilson

At Floors To Walls, all of our wall panels are tongue and groove, making them more than suitable for your bathroom. They can be an excellent alternative to traditional bathroom tiles, creating a brand new look for this room. If you’ve never had them before, you probably don’t know a lot about tongue and groove bathroom wall panelling. So, allow us to explain the key benefits that show you exactly why your bathroom needs them!

Easy to install

The very nature of tongue and groove bathroom wall panelling makes them easy to install. They use an interlocking system with protruding tongues fitting into little grooves. This makes them far easier to install than other wall panels and tiles. As a result, it should make the cost of installation a lot less - or, it makes it easier to do by yourself! This lets you revamp your bathroom in just a few hours, rather than a few days.

Very durable and shock-resistant

All of our tongue and groove wall panels are made from extremely durable materials. This means they aren’t prone to rot or to be damaged to bumps and scrapes. In fact, the way the panels interlock together creates a very stable surface on your bathroom wall. The benefit of this is that each individual panel is able to absorb shocks more effectively than other wall panel options. So, if something does hit the walls, it won’t cause any lasting damage.

Can be installed horizontally or vertically

One of the standout features of these wall panels is that you can install them in a variety of ways. If you want to have horizontal panels across your bathroom wall, you can hang them like that. Or, turn them around to hang the panels vertically and create a different effect. It’s super easy to do thanks to the tongue and groove interlocking system. If you really wanted to be creative, you could include a mix of vertical or horizontal panels to create a pattern. Or, some homeowners install them diagonally for a unique finish. The choice is yours, and the possibilities are endless.

Incredibly easy to clean

What’s the worst thing about bathroom tiles? No matter how stunning they are, they’re an absolute pain to clean. This is because tiles are installed with grout between each one, and this is such a porous material. What does that mean? Well, it means that moisture and dirt get stuck in the grout and settles there over time. Inevitably, this leads to mould forming between your tiles - especially those close to the shower and sink. It’s very difficult to clean between tiles and to get your grout as clean as possible.

Tongue and groove bathroom wall panels don’t have this issue! The interlocking nature of each panel means there are no gaps between each one. As a result, there’s no grout, making the panels far easier to clean. You can wipe them down with a surface cleaner and dry them off with a soft cloth. That’s all there is to it, meaning you can maintain a stunning bathroom for much longer!

100% waterproof

Similarly, the tongue and groove panels are 100% waterproof. All of our panels are made out of non-porous, waterproof materials that don’t soak up moisture. The water stays on the surface where it can be wiped away with ease.

Plus, as mentioned above, the key feature of these panels really comes into play again. By interlocking each panel you basically create one giant panel with no gaps at all. No water can sneak through the gaps, so there’s no danger of water leaking through your walls. If you want the most waterproof option for your bathroom walls, this is it.

Loads of stunning styles

Lastly, tongue and groove wall panels are available in a wealth of gorgeous styles. Seriously, there is something for absolutely every bathroom. One thing we love about the tongue and groove wall panel system is that it can mimic other styles. So, if you want bathroom tiles without the maintenance issues, you can get tongue and groove panels that look exactly like them!
