Small details are very important in the bathroom, and the time you choose to renovate will give you a great opportunity to perfect those details. One detail you need to work on is what material is used for walls. Unlike most homeowners, who always think of tiles, consider watertight bathroom panels instead. Things are changing fast and it is appropriate that you change as well. The use of panels in the bathroom is in vogue, as they are not only functional but also attractive.
Several brands of waterproof panels are available, including Wetwall, Aquamura, Aquabord and Minerelle. These are trademarks specially designed for use in bathrooms including showers. They are also available in different sizes to suit the size of the different bathrooms.
The good thing about waterproof bathroom panels is that they can be installed to cover existing tiles. They are naturally warm and therefore easy to clean, as the heat makes a major contribution to reducing condensation. You have the option of selecting simple or patterned panels.
Installation of waterproof panels
Waterproof panels are supplied with sealants for installation. You can easily install them as a DIY project or contact a specialist.
As a rule of thumb, the panels will need to stay in the bathroom for a few hours before installation begins. In this way, the panels can adapt to the conditions in the bathroom, preventing them from moving after installation.
The walls on which the panels are to be mounted must be clean and dry. You must sand all the paints on the walls to keep the seal perfect. It's always a good idea to buy slightly larger panels that you can easily cut to match your bathroom walls.
