Types of wall panels for the bathroom
The wall panels for the bathroom are now very actively used. There is a fairly wide selection of such panels from different materials, for example, MDF wall panels for natural stone or tiles, plastic panels, artificial stone, mosaic tiles, as well as lining. The most popular type of bathroom decoration is ceramic tiles, but there is also the opportunity to combine a variety of bathroom panels.
The wall panels for the bathroom made of plastic are the most economical option for both the cost of installation and the cost of materials. This type of panel is characterized by a high level of moisture resistance, so their surface is protected by a special coating that prevents the occurrence of scratches. Bacteria do not accumulate on such panels, and such a wall can also be insulated without problems. Options with the design of plastic panels are quite diverse, both in color and type. PVC panels can be laid along the wall, both vertically and horizontally.
MDF wall panels are moisture resistant and therefore they are almost the best option for bathrooms. This type of panel has increased thermal resistance, as well as a high level of protection against scratches and an aggressive environment. These wall panels can be installed not only by an experienced specialist, but also by a home master.
During the installation of MDF panels, you need to place them near the working wall for a couple of days, where they will subsequently stick. This must be done to adapt to a wet room. Then it is necessary to measure measurements and cut holes for pipes and taps. During the marking of the panels, it is important that all horizontal seams coincided. All the joints between the panels, and the ceiling must be well sealed with a sealant.
Wooden wall panels are not a very common option, but despite this, they can last for several years. If they are properly saturated with special water -repellent agents and an antiseptic, then such panels will be able to please the eye with their unusual look.
Tile wall panels are the most popular because they are comfortable and easy to care. A huge range of colors and textures of such tiles allows you to choose the best option for a particular bathroom.
