6 Benefits of Using Wet Wall Panels - WallPanels.com.au

There are many reasons to choose wet wall panels over other materials like tiles in wet rooms like bathrooms. Today, we cover six benefits of using wet wall panels in your renovation.

1. Cleanliness

Wet wall panels are resistant to mould, mildew, and condensation. When properly installed, they are 100% waterproof, protecting your walls from these common problems. The PVC material of our wet wall panels repels condensation, meaning your bathroom dries quicker.

Wet wall panels are also easier to clean than other surfaces like tiles. You can use a warm, damp cloth and dish soap to wipe down wall panels once a week, keeping them clean and maintaining a hygienic environment.

2. Aesthetics

Wet wall panels improve the look of any space. The finish of wet wall panels looks sleek and clean, making it perfect for modern bathroom renovations. It couldn’t be easier to customise your panels for your bathroom, too; you can choose from a range of different patterns for your wet walls.

The range of wall panel finishes available means you can use wall panels to make your bathroom look however you want. You can find panels with finishes replicating wood or stone, as well as the classic white finishes available.

3. Cost-Effective

Wet wall panels offer a cheaper alternative to luxury materials like marble without sacrificing the aesthetics of the finished surface. Bathroom wall panels are even more affordable than buying traditional tiles for your space. You can find an excellent wall panel design that completes your bathroom vision regardless of your budget.

Materials like marble, onyx, and granite are highly desirable for bathroom spaces but are beyond a realistic budget for most people. Wet wall panels give you the same luxurious aesthetic for a fraction of the price and far more straightforward care instructions.

4. Easy Installation

PVC wall panels save time on installation since they are single pieces with tongue and groove fastenings. Rather than being made-to-measure, wall panels are produced in sheets you can easily cut to size to install them yourself. They are also far quicker to install than tiles, taking only a few hours rather than multiple days.

Wet wall panels are also cheaper to install professionally than tiles or luxury materials because the process is much faster. It’s also far neater and cleaner to install wet wall panels without worrying about grouting.

Our warranty promises to replace panels in the same design or an equivalent if the original is unavailable in the event of a successful claim. We are also happy to replace or refund the purchase if you receive defective products.

6. Long Lasting

Wet wall panels last for the life of the bathroom. PVC wall panels are incredibly hard-wearing, making it highly unlikely that they could be chipped, scratched, or dented. They are moisture-resistant because of their plastic coating, meaning they remain durable for an incredibly long time.

With regular maintenance and cleaning, wet wall panels can last as long as your bathroom does. Over time, you may need to update the sealant along the borders of the wall panels to ensure they remain watertight. Doing this every 10-15 years will keep your wet wall panels going strong for many more years to come.


Our bathroom wall panels are an excellent choice for anyone looking to improve their bathroom or shower room without spending too much money or taking too much time. They can be a permanent fixture in your home for as long as you need with proper installation and care.
