For many of us, when redecorating a bathroom the first thing we think about is what to do with the walls. Because tiles have been such an intrinsic feature of the bathroom, it’s not surprising we rarely seek out an alternative…enter waterproof wall panels: tiles, it’s time to move on.

Waterproof wall panels from Multipanel are a great alternative to ceramic wall tiles. Not only do they provide a 100% waterproof finish, they are much faster to install and are much easier to clean and maintain than traditional tiles. That’s because there is no grout involved, which often encourages unsightly mould to flourish and can discolour over time.

Multipanel waterproof panels are a modern, versatile tile alternative for decorating bathroom walls. Suited to all sizes and shapes of bathrooms, wet rooms and cloakrooms. Panels in the different Multipanel collections can be mixed and matched to create a unique look; while pairing them with walls painted in contrasting colours is also highly effective.

In addition, they can be fitted directly on top of existing tiles, stud walls, wood or even concrete, and can be ready for use in just 24 hours. The reduction in labour costs and the fact that you don’t need additional trades such as tillers to install them can make waterproof wall panels a cost-effective solution.


Can you achieve a high-end tile effect wall without the hassle of grout?

With the Multipanel Tile Collection, you can replicate the authentic look of real tiles without the attendant messy installation or on-going cleaning and maintenance issues associated with ceramic tiles. And, having dispensed with grout you’ll also be saying goodbye to any issues with mould.

The Multipanel Tile Collection of wall panels offers you tremendous scope for quickly creating luxurious high-end tile effect walls in both wet and dry areas of your bathroom.

Whether you opt for the convenience of a shower over the indulgence of a bath, tile-effect waterproof panels offer the same beautiful high-end look as traditional tiles, but without the disadvantages discussed above.
