Should I buy wet wall or tiles for my bathroom?

But what about when it comes to your wall coverings? That ongoing battle between traditional wall tiles or modern wet wall.

The best way to decide is by debating the time you’re willing to commit, how much you would like to spend and also the look you’re trying to achieve.

Tiles will take longer to dry, leaving your bathroom out of action for longer, they also cover less sqm per tile compared to a wall panel. However a wall panel can compete with the textures and patterns on offer from a ceramic tile.

However when installed correctly both provide the same waterproof protection within your shower and bath areas.
