  3. Shower Panels vs Tiles

    Leave a Comment

    The Full Guide to Panels vs Tiles In The Bathroom

    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.

    Waterproof Board

    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.

    High Quality Shower Panels

    Unlike other shower panels, stone resin shower panels are totally solid with no backing board to cause issues, and 100% waterproof.

    No Grouting

    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.

  4. Bathroom Inspiration: Greys and Neutrals

    Leave a Comment

    This year has seen the rise in popularity of grey and neutral colour palettes in the bathroom.

    Calming and serene, they are a fantastic base palette that you can update in years to come. They also look fabulous on their own. We take a look at some of our favourite grey and neutral bathroom inspiration ideas.

    Granite ‘Gritstone’ Shower and Bathroom Design

    This granite style bathroom keeps the interest with a fabulous marbled granite finish ‘Gritstone’. The colour keeps the bathroom feeling calm and is a fantastic base for other colours. This hand-made finish option from Versital is a fantastic alternative to a natural product, with it being waterproof and stain resistant. Being hand made it keeps the random feel of the pattern you would find in nature.

    Want to know how to create the ultimate bathroom wetroom but worried about costs and possible complications? Relax and take a look at our guide – it’s not as hard as you might think.

    Shower flooring – Bespoke shower trays

    Save on the mess and trouble of tiling and waterproofing a wetroom floor by choosing a custom made shower tray which covers the shower area. Versital bespoke shower trays are made to the exact shape and size of the area you require, and can even have the colour and waste position specified.

    Custom floor slabs from Versital in the matching finish can be ordered for the rest of the bathroom floor to keep the sleek wetroom look.

    Wet Room Walls – Shower Panels

    Bespoke shower tray, shower seat and panels in brown granite finish.In a wetroom it is essential that the walls are 100% waterproof. To save on messy waterproofing and fiddly tiles with unattractive grouting, choose shower panels that are made to measure to the size that you need.

    Versital offer made to measure shower panels in a huge range of different marble, granite and sparkle colour options. Simply measure the size of panels you need, choose your colour and order.

    Make sure you panel right to the ceiling if you plan on hosing down the whole bathroom when cleaning to save on water ingress.

    Unlike natural stone tiles need to be resealed regularly (quite a big job when all your walls are covered), Versital does not need to be resealed and will remain waterproof for its lifetime.

    Keep Water Contained

    It’s always a good idea to raise the lip of your bathroom threshold by 5mm. This will ensure that water is contained for longer within your bathroom in the event that the shower drain becomes blocked or runs

    Underfloor Heating

    Underfloor heating is a great option in a bathroom wetroom to dry out the wet areas quickly.

    Versital bespoke shower trays and slabs are totally compatible with underfloor heating. It has the benefit of being completely invisible with no external radiator and heating appliance to clutter up the room.

    Simple Shower Screen

    Although this means your bathroom won’t be 100% open plan, a simple shower screen won’t spoil the look of the shower area, as it will be completely see-through. Our clients recommend brands Aqata and Kermi.
