What are bathroom panels ? The most straightforward explanation is that they are the main component of a wall covering system designed to be used in the wet and humid conditions found in bathrooms. Most bathroom panels fall into one of two main categories: one PVC based and one plywood/MDF based. Both systems slot together using a tongue and groove joint and both offer many advantages over traditional coverings such as tiles.
Each bathroom panel sold in the UK by The Bathroom Marquee is made from PVC, we do not sell plywood based panels as these tend to be more expensive and are not as easy to install as their plastic counterparts. The plywood based bathroom panels are more robust and are ideally suited to commercial environments whereas the PVC bathroom panels are perfect for domestic bathrooms and shower rooms or any room in the house.
Marble Effect Bathroom Panel
This is the most popular type of bathroom panel finish. The marble effect is available in several different colours, from dramatic natural shades of the Decos Orion range to the very subtle marble effect of Vicenza Grey Marble. Black marble panels are proving increasingly popular especially when used in just one area of the room, such as inside
a shower cubicle, to provide a contrast to any lighter colours in the rest of the room. Whatever you are looking for you can be sure the Bathroom Marquee will have a panel to suit.
Wood Effect Bathroom Panel
Another popular bathroom panel finish is woodgrain. Again, there are several different colours and patterns to choose from including White Ash in the Decos Belmont range which gives a very subtle whitewashed plank effect. This panel is equally at home on walls or ceilings. There are also panels such Ligno 10 which can provide a realistic wood effect if you are trying to capture a more natural look.
Mosaic Effect Bathroom Panel
Mosaic tiles can look stunning when used as part of a bathroom makeover but our mosaic effect panels can give the same look without any of the drawbacks. Our panels use no grout – one of the main drawback of these types of tiles – and as a consequence there is little or no maintenance associated with them. Mosaic panels can be used around the whole room or used as a feature wall in one part of the bathroom, such as around the bath or inside a cubicle.

Bathroom Ceiling Panel
The beauty of our bathroom panels systems is that you do not have to limit yourself to fitting them to the walls – you can fit them to ceilings as well. White or very light colours tend to work best but it is possible to fit all of our panels on the bathroom ceiling with the exception of our Neptune panels which are a little too heavy for this application. Some of the panels, such as Labo, can be used in conjunction with Silver Highlight Strips to make a feature of the ceiling. Quite a few of our panels are available in longer lengths enabling all but the very largest room to be spanned with a single panel: Belmont panels have a 5.0m option and Labo and Blanca are available in a 6.0m length. In the unlikely event that these are not long enough it is always possible to fit the panels across the room if it has a shorter span.
