Wall panelling can add a whole new dimension to your bathroom. Create a feature with our range of 3D water-resistant wall panelling, easily hung below dado rail height with our recommended adhesive. Our panels are delivered primed and ready to paint whatever colour you like! For a more classic, restrained effect, paint it the same colour or tone as the walls. If you’re feeling brave, hang our panelling at alternate angles and paint in bold, contrasting colours.

We recommend No. 108 Zig Zags and also our classic No. 120 for a hotel vibe.

  1. Waterproof wall panelling – perfect for splashbacks

Looking for bathroom splashback ideas? All of our wall panels are made from a lightweight, water resistant polyurethane which is ideal for bathroom splashbacks! 3D wall panelling is a much more modern choice than tiling which can become dated quite quickly. Grouting can stain and make your bathroom look tired, whereas wall panelling can be repainted to suit your mood. Hang it at different angles for a unique effect, or choose from five different profiles: valleys, ridges, hills, bars or zig zags.

We recommend No. 112 ‘Ridges’ which has a pleasingly organic ellipse effect.

2. Wall mouldings

For relatively little cost, applying wall mouldings to your bathroom can be transformative! Adding depth and a new dimension to a plain wall, this detail with make an enormous difference. Whether you live in a period property or not, it’s a nod to a classic interior and gives you the option to paint it in sympathetic or contrasting tones. A free standing bath looks elegant against the wall mouldings, but if your bath is set against the wall, bring the mouldings around the side for a cohesive effect.
