How to choose wall panels for your bathroom

When you're furnishing or renovating a bathroom, you must make numerous decisions regarding fixtures: shower, bathtub, sinks, furniture. But let's not forget an equally crucial step -  choosing the design of the wall. Gone are the days of tiles being the only option; the trend now is towards wall panels. Why and how should you choose wall panels for your bathroom? Let us guide you through.

Why choose wall panels for your bathroom?

Bathroom wall panels offer several advantages, both practical and aesthetic. This explains why they have become an increasingly competitive alternative to wall tiles and paint.

Here are the main qualities of shower wall panels:

Easy installation

Undoubtedly, the primary advantage of wall panels is their ease of installation. Ready to be placed on any surface (concrete, plasterboard, plaster, or even over existing tiles), they do not require significant preparation work before installation. Moreover, wall panels can be custom cut to fit any sized bathroom.

It's worth noting that installation might be more technical around the plumbing fixtures so for this we recommend hiring a professional for a perfect installation.


Designed to protect walls from splashes and moisture, bathroom wall panels are 100% waterproof. They are also engineered to withstand stains, scratches, and impacts, ensuring a durable and robust installation.


Wall panels offer a wide variety of colours and finishes to create the ambiance you desire in your bathroom. The absence of grout lines results in a sleek, elegant finish.

Easy maintenance

In addition to being practical and elegant, wall panels also simplify your life with their easy maintenance. Made of non-porous and water-resistant materials, they can be easily cleaned with a sponge and ordinary cleaning product.


Wall panels prove to be a relatively economical choice for covering bathroom walls. 

As installation is much simpler compared to tiling, you'll save on installation time and, therefore, labour costs if you hire a professional. The time and costs savings are possible as a result of minimal preparation work being required, fewer joints, and easier cutting.

Different types of wall panels: materials and styles

There's a wide selection of materials for wall panels, with various finishes:

Synthetic materials like PVC, resin, acrylic, or polyurethane

Economical and easy to maintain, they offer numerous possibilities in terms of design and finish. You can find panels that mimic marble, concrete, brick, wood, or cement tiles. Moreover, the ability to mould these materials allows for adding relief: geometric figures, wave patterns, wood or stone textures... Wall panels bring life to the bathroom.

Aluminium or stainless steel

Very durable, aluminium panels can be combined with another material to add a modern touch. The latest models are coated with a finishing varnish that protects against scratches and limescale.


Adds a lot of elegance to a bathroom. Whether it's clear, frosted, tinted, or even printed, glass panels adapt to the room's decoration.
