Cladding in bathroom or tiiling

Recommended Posts

Hi i am looking for advice we are  having a new bathroom and think of having it claded instead of tiled  as told by shop this is the way to go now .

A friend told me you are are always wiping it to keep it clean anybody had it done. I   am  a bit old hat myself but like to keep up with the times cheers

I fitted some for an elderly gent and it went on great,never had any issues with it. Edge sealing is about as difficult as it gets tbh. Quicker than tiles as wqell.

But it will only be keeping up with the times until something new comes along, or tiles come back into fashion.

 

It's you who will be using the bathroom, not some random salesperson in a shop. If you want tiles, have tiles. 😀

Of course it's a personal choice but I would always go for tiles.

I always think, go with the tried and tested method.   Tiles will never go out of fashion and nowadays there is so much choice in colour and texture.

I looked at the cladding but think I will go with tiles. I might have the ceiling  cladding slats about 4 inches wide which look good, a neighbour has them in the bathroom.

Does the bathroom shop not sell tiles but happens to sell the cladding?....

You don't see cladding to the walls in many new-builds for a reason- people want tiles!

Trust me on this. Don't touch them with a barge pole. Get tiles, and use a different company.

I'd have paint on the walls where it's practical, tiles where it's not. Being able to change the colour of the bathroom is a nice option to have. 

 

Leave the plastic bathrooms to Ibis etc.
