Bathroom Ceilings

bathroom ceilings

Whatever material you use for your bathroom ceiling you can be sure that it will be subjected to a lot of demands over its lifetime. Bathrooms are humid and warm – the ideal environment for mould to take root. The moisture levels can cause havoc with some traditional materials which in turn leads to constant maintenance. Our range of bathroom ceiling panels are completely maintenance-free – they look good and remain looking good for years and years.

We have a variety of different designs available and the panels are available in several different length to enable them to be used in virtually any room. They can be installed above shower cubicles and will not be affected by any deflected spray (in fact they can be fitted to the walls of a shower cubicle as they are totally waterproof).

Many bathrooms still use old fashioned methods for covering the ceiling. The standard finishes, such as plaster, texturing compound, wallpaper or timber tongue and groove panels are all usually over-coated with paint (or sometimes varnish in the case of tongue and groove). The two main problems that can affect these finishes are: mould growth – caused by the constant presence of moisture; and peeling – caused by moisture getting underneath the paint surface and reducing the bond between the paint and the substrate. There are several specialist bathroom paints on the market that help prevent mould growth but even these can suffer from peeling if the underlying substrate is not dry. The best solution is to move away from these materials and opt for a modern panelling system that will not lead to any problems in the long run.
