What Materials to Consider When You Choose Shower Wall Panels?
I believe you must have seen some articles that give you the 10 most popular options for your bathroom. It seems to offer you a lot of options, but in my opinion, it is quite the opposite. I don’t want to overwhelm you, I only want to give you the practical information you would actually refer to while choosing the right shower wall panels.
1. Acrylic Bathroom Wall Panels
It is indeed easy to install and has no grout. Actually many modern wall panels have these features to some extent. And it seems like everyone is selling it! But you can deny the fact that it has really limited design options.
Despite the fact that all companies and brands try to launch something new, it is still difficult to modify an acrylic shower enclosure to look like what you want, and some people may not find it appealing at all. High gloss acrylic? Nah! Some might say it’s too plasticky. Beautiful matte finish? Still on the way.
When you are surrounded by so many “me too” products, you know you need other products to help you out!
2. PVC Bathroom Wall Panels
PVC wall panel is probably one of the most popular wall cladding options. Highly cost-effective with many design possibilities.
Despite its popularity, PVC bathroom wall panels are not without their disadvantages. One of the biggest problems is that it is not entirely scratch resistant and will sustain damage from knocks.
When it comes to the active bathroom, shower, wet room areas, or other spaces in the room, PVC wall panels may not be a good option. But if you promise that you will be very careful and that no scratch, knock, or dent will occur, you can forget what I said.
3. Laminated Bathroom Shower Wall Panels
Another popular option for bathrooms is the laminated shower wall panels. There are many brands out there doing this kind of product with many advantages that both sellers, consumers, and DIYers would love.
Typically, the thickness of laminated shower wall panels would be around 10mm. And it comes in a variety of designs, including wood and marble effects, with or without curves.
But there are some points worthy of consideration.
The first one is eco-friendliness. Some use the MDF board as the core board and laminated to have waterproofing and other performance. Some would use plywood as the core board. Regardless of either way, both of them need to glue the wood, wood fiber, and other materials together during production. And for water resistance performance, resin will be added, which will be harmful to human health as well as the environment.
The second one is the waterproof performance. Because of the features of the material, the waterproof or moisture-proof may still be an issue. There are good products, but you definitely need to make sure of it!
So much for the above information, but it doesn’t seem to have an ideal wall paneling for the bathroom so far. If you also feel the same way, then you should definitely keep reading.
