Tile alternative for bathroom walls

I’m updating my bathroom with a walk in shower, are there any alternatives to tiling in the shower areas?

Steph Harris, Product Manager at Showerwall, commented: “Wall panelling has become hugely popular for walk-in showers. You can create a luxurious statement look, without the cost and hassle of tiling, plus it’s much easier to keep clean.

“Showerwall panels create a fully watertight system, with a seamless, solid and durable surface. If you’re confident at DIY, you can fit the panels yourself or ask a bathroom installer, builder or Showerwall fitter. They can be installed on either a clean plastered wall or over existing tiles, and its up to six times faster than tiling, which keeps labour costs down and speeds up your bathroom renovation.

“No grout means less build-up of mould and soap residue, and there’s no need to re-seal or re-grout over time, so they are really low maintenance; simply wipe the panels clean to keep them looking fresh.

“You can choose from over 80 designs in gloss or matt finishes, including tile-effects like Subway, Herringbone and Marble, or be bold with wallpaper-inspired designs including Botanicals and Vintage Birds. There is even the option of custom bespoke panels, featuring your own photo, design or artwork for a unique bathroom look that’s personal to you.”
