The choice between tiles and bathroom wall panels is not simple. The range of styles shapes and colours available can make the decision cumbersome to say the least. Here is a guide evaluating the pluses and minuses of both solutions, so you can concentrate on creating that ideal bathroom look. (more…)
When designing and installing a new bathroom, the first thought used to be ceramic tiles.
However, things are changing when it comes to bathrooms and the availability of different products, and shower panels are fast becoming the way to go.
Ceramic tiles are the traditional way to waterproof and finish a bathroom. However, the main problem with tiled bathrooms is the leaks that are caused mainly by poor grouting. Although a leak may be apparent, they are often very difficult to locate.
One type of board on the market are laminated boards with MDF or Polyfoam backing or core. They come in standard sheet sizes, usually 2400 x 1200. They are a waterproof solution for shower areas. However, problems can happen if water penetrates the waterproof laminated surfaces and causes the backing to swell or ‘blow’ with water damage. They are also limited when it comes to sizes, with only standard sizes available and limited colour choice.
Another type of waterproof panel that is growing in popularity across the market are stone resin shower panels from the likes of Versital. Stain resistant, easy to fit and beautiful high quality finishes.
Like all panels, the major benefit with stone resin shower panels from Versital is the total lack of grouting. Instead of grouting simply seal joins with sanitary grade silicone.
Made to Your Preferred Sizes To Fit
Stone resin shower panels from Versital are manufactured to preferred sizes anywhere up to 3 meters long and as small as half a meter! You are not limited to standard sizes that won’t necessarily fit your bathroom. With so many size options available, you can use the panels wherever you want in the bathroom, not just the shower area. You can also cut the panels with ordinary working tools for a perfect fit.
