Cladding Around A Vanity Unit

This photo was supplied by one of our customers who undertook a complete refurbishment of their bathroom using our cladding.

They went for a neutral colour scheme and opted for our Orion Carrara panels which are a grey marble design with a slightly darker feel than a lot of the other grey marbles in our range (and there are a few!). When working with greys it is important to choose any highlighting colours, for towels, blinds etc. carefully. If you leave everything white or black it can look a bit uninteresting, while certain colours just do not work with grey (beige’s browns, creams). Bright colours like lime green, red or purple work fine. With blues you again need to be careful because not all blue colours will work.

We get asked quite often about the order in which a bathroom refurbishment should be tackled. Usually we would say bath or shower tray first, then the cladding, and then the basin and toilet. If, however, you are fitting a vanity unit like this customer, you need to install this first, before the panels. Two reasons – firstly, the units needs to be attached to a solid wall (remember the panels are decorative, not structural). Secondly, you will save money as there is no point fitting units over the panels when they will not be seen.

Here are a few more photos from he same installation – as you can see the room needs to finished off with with accessories etc to give the room a bit of a lift – these photos were taken straight after the main installation was completed:
