5 Ways with Bathroom Panelling

Bathroom interiors have taken on a new lease of life and are treated with the same importance as any other room in the house. 

Customers are choosing wall panelling for their bathrooms as an alternative to traditional tiles. The water-resistant, hard-wearing quality of the panelling makes them ideal for splashbacks, on the front of cupboard doors, wainscoting up to a dado rail on the walls or the side of the bath and indeed covering a whole wall from floor to ceiling.

If you’re looking for something modern, unique and a little bit different....look no further. Primed and ready to be painted as either a feature wall or to blend in with your scheme, the panelling can even be hung on the horizontal, vertical or diagonal. The joy of it is that it can be used in a highly contemporary, creative way and also in a more traditional setting. It’s lightweight, easy to cut and install and can cover up old, bumpy walls.

There has been a recent trend for highly decorative tiling in bathrooms, but these can quickly date. Using one of the wall panel designs will help you create an elegant and timeless interior that could be updated by changing the paint colour at a later date. The most popular designs include Bars No. 111, Hills No. 110 and Valleys No. 109 which are all pleasingly geometric, vertical designs. If you’re feeling brave, take a look at Ridges No. 112 or Cobble No. 113.

Read on to discover five different ways you could use wall panelling in your bathroom.

1. Wall Panelling for Bathroom Splashbacks

The first place you might consider a wall covering in your bathroom is a splashback, perfect for catching water and protecting the walls.

The image below shows a very high splashback and soft colour palette – this image is one of our most popular! The gentle colour scheme and bright lighting keeps the space fresh and inviting. This panel has endless design possibilities and can be hung at different angles. Valleys is a pleasing, vertical design which helps to accentuate the ceiling height and is easy on the eye.

Valleys No. 109 is also available in a flexible version in case you are following the line of a curved wall.

2. Wall Panelling for the front of cupboards

Why not cover the front of your bathroom cupboard doors with wall panelling?

What a great way to add a contemporary feel, update your bathroom and protect your doors from water. This image shows our Hills No. 110 design which has been painted in a deep maroon to match the veining in the marble splashback. Because the panelling is so easy to cut to size, and using our special adhesive, this would be a very achievable design project!

Furthermore, repetitive design is a current design trend allowing you to personalise your interior and add texture and detail.

3. Using Wall Panelling for Wainscotting

Wainscotting is a traditional term used to describe wall panel below dado height. Once used to cover old, damp or bumpy walls and protect them from knocks, the look has become synonymous with stylish interiors the world over.

The look is easy to achieve with lightweight and easy to cut and hang wall panelling. Go for our classic No. 147 Wainscotting panel, or for something more modern, choose our Zig Zags No. 108 as shown in the image below. We love the detail of the thin, black rail distinguishing the panelling from the rest of the interior.

4. Wall Panelling a whole wall 

Just got for it!

Cover your whole wall from floor to ceiling in wall panelling. This can be particularly effective in small spaces where trying to make it appear more spacious can often be counterproductive. Go with the smallness and the darkness and paint the panelling in a deep colour. Bathrooms can so often be boring spaces, but actually they’re the areas in the house where you can be a little braver!

5. Create a Glamorous Feature Wall with Wall Panelling

We wanted to show you some examples of the wall panelling being used in a VERY creative way, hung at jaunty angles, used alongside bold wallpaper and painted in lively colours!

There is no end to the creativity you can unleash with our textured 3D wall panelling! Use it all over the walls and on the ceiling too. Perfect for the front of cupboard doors, a splashback above your bath, sink, framing a bathroom mirror or creating a feature wall. Think about clashing colour palettes (you can always change it later!) and lighting to finish it off.
