In this application, the customer installed our Spaceline Silver Grey panels as part of complete bathroom makeover. This is a nice, light and airy design that can really open up the room and is very neutral in colour – the client chose to stay with greys and blacks but this panel works equally well with strong colours.
As can be seen in the photo the bath panel was made out of Spaceline as well. The bath is installed in the corner of the room so both a front and end panel were required. A corner trim has been used where the two panels meet to form the external corner of the bath. Rather than running the bath panel cladding down to the floor a plinth has been made from the floor tiles and recessed back slightly to provide visual interest.
The front panel is the the one that runs the full length of the bath. Using our PVC panelling for this application is straightforward and will result in a much stronger job that the flimsy acrylic panels that are supplied with bathroom suites. It is possible to run our panels horizontally for this purpose but it is much more common to run them vertically. This is especially true in there are matching wall panels as these should always be run vertically.
Because many bathroom are made to accommodate a bath wall-to-wall these are not always required. Where the bathroom is larger as in the photo above, and end panel is required. They can be made in the same way as a front panel and simply butt-joined at the corner and covered with an angle trim. We would recommend sticking the angle trim with silicone as this enables it to be removed easier than is adhesive is used.
