How to install wall panels in a bathroom

What is the difference between bathroom tiles and bathroom panels?

Installing tiles requires hiring a professional installer to cut them and put them on the wall before putting them in place. Putting tile on the wall requires creating a mixture to attach the tiles, laying them in place, grouting and sealing them, which requires a lot of labor costs.

In addition, the surface design of the tile is more subtle, so tile is much more expensive to remodel than other materials.

Once you have decided on a design style, how do you install the perfect wall? Next, I will explain how to install bathroom wall paneling.

Step 1 – Measurements

Before purchasing bathroom wall panels, you need to know exactly how much wall paneling to purchase. Measure the surface you intend to cover and purchase enough bathroom wall paneling so that you can complete the entire job. It is best to have a little more than you need in order to make mistakes during installation.

Step 2 – Wall studs

If you are going to install bathroom wall panels on an existing wall, you need to know where the studs are going to be located as you screw the wall panels to the studs. Wall studs are on 16″ centers or on 24″ centers. This means that the distance from the center of one stud to the center of the next stud is 16 inches or 24 inches in length. Use a stud locator to determine the location of the study; it should be relatively easy to figure out the correct measurement for the wall you are working on.

Step 3 – Cutting

Since you will be securing the bathroom wall panels to the studs, you will need to make sure that you cut the wall panels to the correct width. Since the 2 wall panels will be butting up against each other on the studs, you need to make sure you have measured the distance on the wall panels correctly. Use your tape measure carefully, always keeping in mind that your first panel will start at a corner. Measure twice, check your numbers, then draw lines on the wall panels and cut them with a saw.

Step 4 – Laying the Wall Panels

While there are some shower panels that are self-adhesive, most need to be attached to the wall. To do this, place the wallboard against the wall and drill a hole on each side before screwing in screws to hold it in place. Once you’ve done this, you can add more screws to hold it securely to the studs. Place the next board on top of the first one, then drill and screw in the holes in the same way as the first board. Repeat this procedure until you have covered the entire wall.

Using suction cups, place the panel in place to ensure it is the correct size, and make sure you leave a 3mm gap around the top edge of the panel and any cutouts.

Add a generous amount of sealant to the corner trim and fill the bottom seal. Add adhesive from the bathroom wall panel to the wall or directly to the wall panel using lines.

Remove any excess sealant from around the seal, pushing the front seal and end into place, making sure the cover is now completely flush.

Seal any holes you previously cut for the pipe or showerhead by applying sealant around the fixtures and fittings.

Step 5 – Finishing

Fill the screw heads with mastic and smooth them out so that they are level with the bathroom wall panel. Apply drywall tape to the gaps between the bathroom wall panels and smooth it out so that the surface is level with the wall panels. Cut the top and bottom trim to size and nail them to the bathroom wall panel with fine tack nails. Finish by painting or staining with your favorite color. Get more information, all at COOWIN.
