Bathroom wall panels are water proof panels which are generally manufactured using thermoplastics, better known as UPVC, although some panels may be manufactured from Medite Exterior grade medium density fibreboard, which is more commonly known as MDF. This MDF board is then covered on the outer face with a high pressure laminate, and a balancing laminate is applied to the back to prevent distortion of the panel, this also improves the waterproof qualities of the panel. Choosing bathroom wall panels can be easier if you first narrow your choices to those within your budget that are waterproof, simple to clean and easy to install. Of course, before choosing the panels, you should plan the wall design of your bathroom. You’ll have to decide on full bathroom wall panels or on a wainscoting technique by using them only on the bottom and adding paint or wallpaper to the top section.
Bringing the exact measurements for the wall panels you’ll need to the home improvement store is necessary to get the right fit. You may not be able to return any extra bathroom wall panels, so buying extra isn’t usually a good idea. Not buying enough panels should also be avoided, especially if there could be a delay in getting more of exactly the same design. A few extra panels to store in a basement or other out of the way place may be beneficial for the future in case a panel or two becomes damaged and needs to be replaced.
