Our bathroom cladding sample packs come with 5 samples of your choice. You are free to choose whichever panels you would like to see in closer detail. But to maximise the amount of help that these packs can bring here are a few tips to guide you on your way.
Some of the tips are more self evident than others but all of them are designed to ensure your complete satisfaction with our service and products.
Samples Can be Cut In Half To See How They Join
Panels offer the great advantage of providing a flush, wipe-over surface – unlike tiles. For this to happen the panels have to slot together snugly to ensure a flush join. When you receive your samples you might not have two of the same design so you will not be able to join them together to see for yourself.
You can overcome this problem by cutting the sample in half, either vertically or horizontally. This will provide you with one tongue edge and one grooved edge so you can slot them together. This is also useful to see how the grout lines work for any tile effect panels that you have selected.
Try Not To Duplicate Your Choices
Panels, such as Modern Decor are available in a large tile format and a smaller mosaic effect. The colour and design is the same – it is just the tile size that varies. So ordering both does not benefit you as the large tile sample will just look like the mosaic sample but without grout lines.
You would be better choosing one of each from the two colour options available as they work well when using a mix and match pattern.
Similarly Vicenza Whiteline is the same panel as Vicenza White Chrome but without the chrome strip. It is is easy to visualise exactly what it would like with the chrome section and will free-up one of your choices.
Variations Between Ranges
Our panels are available in different ranges such as Vicenza and Neptune.
Within these ranges you will see designs described, for example, as White Sparkle. Even though they have the same name the designs are not the same – they are descriptive rather than “model” names.
Not only are the colours/patterns different they are different thicknesses so you could not join Vicenza panels onto Neptune panels as the joints are different plus one will be thicker than the other.
If you are in any doubt just give us a ring and we will be only too happy to explain the different options available.
One other thing to point out is batch variations. Although they are usually consistent colour-wise any manufactured product can have slight variations between batches. We ensure all panels sent out are from the same batch but the ones you receive could be from a different batch than your sample.
Order Some Ceiling Panels
Even if you had not initially thought about it we would recommend having one or two samples of ceiling panel in your pack.
Although this sounds like a sales pitch, you will not regret putting ceiling panels up in your bathroom. Traditional covering have a tendency to develop mould over time.
Ceiling panels can be fitted afterwards if you change your mind but it is easier to do it all at the same time (and cheaper as you will have less carriage charges).
Even if you just want a plain white ceiling our ceiling panels will out-perform a painted plaster ceiling easily – with no maintenance for you. And we have a many attractive design that can make a feature of your ceiling if that is what you require.
Our panels are 100% recyclable and even re-usable. So to try and keep up the good work environmentally we keep the paperwork supplied with your samples to a minimum. We no longer provide printed brochures but do have some printed material included in your bathroom cladding sample pack.
We include website links and QR codes to make life easy for you to see all of the information online.
