The basis of products is polyvinyl chloride, which meets modern requirements for environmental friendliness, hygiene and safety.
Black bathroom in white
Each panel consists of two thin sheets of plastic, connected by longitudinal ribs.
They form cells in the form of cells, so under them after installation an air layer is created. This structure provides thermal and sound insulation.
The advantage of this material in aesthetics, strength and durability
Plastic does not absorb moisture, so it is not subject to deformation. In the process of installation, the sheets of decorative plastic adhere tightly, thanks to the protrusions on the edges.
This is a guarantee of one hundred percent waterproofing, lightweight panels eliminates the additional load on the base of the walls and ceiling.
PVC products are not deformed by high temperature. Images do not fade, are not erased.
Broad bands look very interesting.
Pollution is easily removed from the plastic surface. High-quality installation and regular maintenance contribute to the operation of up to 10 years and more.If you need to change the interior, the panels are quickly and easily removed. Their installation does not require pre-finishing walls. Behind them, you can hide communications. Return to the menu
Shape and size
Manufacturers usually produce PVC fragments 2.5–4 m long, 5–10 mm thick.
White color makes the room more spacious.The market implements options for plastic panels thinner and shorter than the standard parameters, but they are less durable, so their use in the bathroom is irrational.
Gray plastic for the bathroom look strictly and concisely
Depending on the design idea on the market, you can buy PVC in the form of:
- standard sheets with a width of 10-37 cm, mainly with a tile imitation frieze;
- slats, representing a narrow 10 cm wide strips with a single-color design;
- seamless sheets up to 2 m wide, as a rule, with a ready-made design solution on the front side.

Rack plastic are mounted longer, but allow to correct space.Horizontal mounting of the rails will visually expand the room, and vertical mounting will visually “raise” the ceiling.
Disadvantages of plastic panels:
- low level of resistance to mechanical damage;
- reduction of useful space of the room due to installation;
- the difficulty of installing additional wall shelves, cabinets that require slats;
- the need for accurate calculation docking frieze and drawings.
But these disadvantages successfully replace the pros. In addition, manufacturers continue to work on improving the characteristics of products, create new ways of installation. Some versions of the panels can already be glued or installed with clips.return to menu ↑

Their volume increases when choosing lamellae with asymmetrical patterns. To use segments with such decor in other places of the bathroom is impossible.
Variety with narrow stripes
Therefore, for standard plates, you should buy 10-15% more from the area of the finished surfaces. With complex drawings, the number of panels is better to calculate one by one.
Screws, screws, klyammery better buy bundles, because it is impossible to calculate their exact number. With slats and profiles is easier, because they divide the surface into squares, but it is preferable to purchase with a stock.
This material currently has great potential.BoardPreparing for installation, it is better to pre-assemble the picture and use an adhesive tape to attach it to the wall. This will help to avoid calculation errors. Return to the menu

Two types of cutting1While cutting along the lamella, a long, flat rail fits snugly to the contour of the marking and is notched with the help of a mounting knife, “grinder”, or hacksaw one side along the entire length. Then turns over and bends at the cut point. It is completely cut off at the fold. 2 In the transverse method, at first, jumpers located between the planes are cut one by one.

- Trimming metal profiles to the desired height.
- Installation of vertical profiles at a distance of 50 cm from each other, starting from the left side.
- Screw fasteners at a distance of 40 cm on the same level, starting from the bottom.
- Between the wall and the ceiling, the wall and the floor there are gaps of 3-3.5 mm.
Delicate and very soft bathroom interior
The result is a solid frame - the foundation. Then the cells are filled with foam.
After it is laid, the lighting will be wired - sockets, places for lamps. The last stage is the fastening of plastic panels to the profile with a tight connection of fragments, gluing the baseboards on top and bottom.
For mounting panels used screws, screws or nails. The panels can be fixed with the help of klyimer, "snap" elements to the crate. They allow you to speed up the installation, but more expensive in cost.For bathrooms, horizontal installation is not recommended, because moisture can easily get into the joints, and then penetrate into the space under the lamellae and provoke the formation of mold fungus.
In small rooms, the use of a frame for decoration "eats" precious centimeters of area. But this is not a reason for rejecting such a plastic decoration option. They can be glued.

In a small bathroom the interior in light colors visually expands your space.
The adhesive composition is applied to the slab dotted with a distance of 5-10 cm from the edge. The points are staggered.
Installation is carried out from a corner clockwise. It is applied to the surface with little effort, because the panels are "afraid" of large mechanical effects.
The advantage of plastic in elegance, reliability and durability
Almost immediately, the decorative sheet is detached from the wall surface to allow the glue to dry. After 5-10 minutes, the panel is finally installed in place. The upper and lower edges are additionally secured with dowels.Compliance with this technology is imperative that there is no skew of the following lanes.

The frame of the ceiling is made with slats of spruce or pine with dimensions of 20x40 mm or 20x50 mm. For fastening the rails, U-shaped suspensions are used, which are positioned 40-50 cm later. The frame for the lamps is additionally strengthened.
Installation begins with fastening to the skirting frame. Then decorative lamellae are inserted under the baseboard on one side, and then on the other, and attached to the crate with screws.
Easy to install yourself without asking for help from the masters
During installation, the electric wires are brought out. The installation is completed with the treatment of joints with silicone sealant.It is better to install ceiling tiles diagonally, to use screws with a press washer, because the atmosphere of the bathroom is characterized by high humidity and temperature differences.
