When I first came across this modern, waterproof panelling system by Showerwall, I was amazed at how simple it is to create a high-end, bespoke bathroom design for half the hassle. Diamond Acrylic / Showerwall
What Is A Wall Pannel?
It’s a versatile, easy-to-fit bathroom wall panel system that can transform your bathroom from drab to fab in half the time of tiling. It’s made from hard-wearing materials, and delivers a watertight finish that’s tough, stain resistant and easy to clean.
You can also create custom designs with pictures, patterns or repeats so that you can create the bathroom look you have been craving.
Fit the waterproof panels where you would have wall tiles – either in a shower, behind a bath or as a splashback for sinks. Or all three.

6 Reasons Why You Need This Bathroom Trend In Your Life
Why might you choose a wall panel instead of tiles? Good question!
1. They’re customisable
Yep, that’s right! If you’re wanting something a little more bespoke, perhaps a design you’ve created or an image from your instagram feed that’s unique to you, then it’s possible to have it custom printed to your requirements. Just follow this link to see how it’s done..
2. They can be built on to any material
Perhaps you’re sick of the sight of some pre-existing tiles in your bathroom and want a quick fix? Well good news, not only can these panels be fixed to a wall, they can also be fixed to tiles. Imagine being able to get rid of those pre-existing tiles without having to cause a mess.

3. It requires less build
Less build means less hassle! The waterproof paneling system can be fitted by anyone who is DIY competent. Simply cut the panels to size, and fix them to the wall. Overall it causes a lot less mess and a much faster fit than tiles. We also know that less mess, means less stress too.
Given the size of the sheets, it’s also much quicker to install since you cover more space. They are also easy to fit into a tricky space like a loft bathroom or wonky ceilings.
4. It’s easier to clean
With this system you can say goodbye to bathroom mould – or have to worry about water damage. The interlocking system on the panels means that there’s not a seam in sight, giving a hard-wearing, stain resistant finish that’s far more hygienic. Great for busy family bathrooms.
5. It won’t discolour
Tiling looks great when it’s first installed but over a period of time they can look grotty. Especially the grout which can discolour. Showerwall requires a simple wipe and the finish will not discolour. Easy peasy.
6. Peace of mind
When installed correctly using the recommended fitting guide and accessories, Showerwall guarantee all their wall panels for 15 years from the purchase date.
