Planning your shower room

When planning a shower room the type of surfaces you choose are an important consideration, both creatively and functionally. Wall panels can provide a practical and stylish alternative to tiles as they provide large, unbroken decorative expanses from floor to ceiling that reflect consumers’ increased desire for streamlined, hygienic and easy to clean surfaces.

Popular herringbone, Moroccan and metro tile finishes can even be achieved through waterproof wall panels thanks to the broad scope of designs now available. Showerwall offers several tile effect decors that offer the benefit of a hygienic, wipe clean surface without the worry of grout lines inevitably becoming dirty and discoloured over time. The acrylic wall panels are also faster and easier to install than small format tiles, which is helpful in ensuring a renovation project stays on track.

Maximalist designs featuring bold colour and intricate patterns continue to be a popular choice in bathrooms and shower areas, however this look is usually achieved using wallpaper which is not an ideal material for a humid environment. This design look can be achieved with bathroom wall panels which are available in botanical designs, jungle prints and vintage patterns. Showerwall offers several exuberant designs that conjure up a feeling of visual escapism and help to create a haven to relax and unwind, without the concern that it will peel off over time.

Bathroom wall panels are versatile surfacing option or shower areas as they can be installed with all types of shower tray and enclosure, including level access where this is the desired look or there is a need to incorporate accessible design in the home.
