Repairing a bathroom or toilet is a complex and expensive undertaking. Reducing costs is the dream of everyone who is engaged in bringing their homes in order. How to do it? The easiest way to use PVC wall panels. They are cheap, easy to install and clean.
For the bathroom, they should be selected carefully. The room is quite cramped, without windows, it is characterized by high traffic. The walls there need to be finished, given all these circumstances. Washable panels are suitable for finishing the area at the door, next to the cabinet for cleaning products and the area for dirty clothes.
PVC wall panels in pastel shades are best suited for bathroom decoration. In terms of strength and other properties, they are an excellent material in order to make a beautiful and practical finish. They can well cover all defects, including existing wall irregularities.
Features of color selection
If your toilet does not differ in size and good lighting, it is better to diversify its interior by choosing PVC wall panels in variegated colors without hittingvolume to the extreme. In this case, the dust and dirt that inevitably appear on the walls will not be visible.
Since there is no natural light in the bathrooms, bright panels with the presence of mother-of-pearl shine will do. The room will look unusual if you try to combine different colors. This can be done on one of the walls, or you can do it on all of them.
In order not to visually reduce the size of an already small room, it is better not to finish it with material that has a large pattern. However, a good solution would be bright PVC wall panels, photos (the price is about 300 rubles apiece) of which are in any catalog, which will greatly facilitate the choice. They will give your bathroom an unspeakable charm.
You can also consider the option of using the material with photographs printed on it. Such panels are usually mounted on the farthest wall. This will not only create the impression of a kind of “window”, which will visually expand the space, but also refresh the interior.
How to attach?
Traditionally they are mounted on a frame. It is optimal to use a metal profile, as it does not deform under the influence of moisture in the air. But it is still cheaper to use a tree treated with antiseptics that prevent the development of fungus and mold.
The frame of the beams is attached to the walls with dowels. Note! It is necessary to carefully check the position of the timber with a building level and a plumb line, otherwise the PVC wall panels will be crooked, which will not add to their attractiveness.
They are screwed onto the frame with self-tapping screws. Fasten until a clearly audible click, because otherwise they will disperse over time.
If you have problems with soundproofing the room, sound-absorbing materials can be placed between the panels and the wall. In addition, it is optimal to lay communication cables in the same space so that they do not spoil the appearance of the room.
Usually, PVC wall panels are 25-30 cm wide and about 2.5 meters high. So the average bathroom can be covered with hygienic material without spending a lot of money on it. Given that PVC panels do not rot, you can forget about repairs for the next decade or more.
