Shower wall panels vs tiles

If you've decided to invest in a complete bathroom renovation and shower replacement, you'll have quite a few options for visual appeal. There are a number of different products available, each with its own benefit. Your choice will depend largely on your budget, desired style, and function.

Although many homeowners decide on individual tiles for their shower walls, this isn't always the best case. In many situations, complete shower wall panels are a much more practical solution. Below, we'll go over a few of the key reasons why wall panels are a superior choice for your 5-day bathroom remodel.

Provides the Same Look as Tile At a Discount

To the untrained eye, a shower panel looks the same as individual tiles. Unless you're getting up close with a microscope, it can be difficult to tell the difference. This is very beneficial for homeowners because shower panels come at a much lower price. While they are not "authentic", they provide the exact same visual appeal and function for your home at a fraction of the cost.

Much Easier to Clean and Mildew-Resistant

Individual tiles provide the perfect environment for mold and mildew to grow. The crevices between each tile hold water, creating a thriving place for germs that can be tough to clean. If your bathroom has individual tiles, you'll need to take special care to clean all the nooks and crannies. With a shower wall panel, this level of cleaning is never needed. All you will have to do is wipe it down regularly.

Requires Much Less Extensive of an Installation

The biggest advantage of a shower wall panel instead of tile is that the installation is much more simple. You won't have to hire a professional to place and grout each tile, significantly reducing the time it takes for you to have a complete bathroom renovation. In addition, a shower wall panel is easier for the following reasons:

  • The Materials Installed Are Not as Heavy as Tiles
  • You Don't Have to Worry About Cracking or Breaking
  • Wall Panels Can be Customized to any Shower Layout
