Make something new and different on your bathroom wall. Sometimes, you only need to make small steps for it. Here are tips to install it successfully and beautifully.
1. Perfect Selection
There are many choices for decorative wall panels. We should consider the style and theme of the bathroom, how we would like it to be later, and also maintenance and cleaning preference. Sometimes, combining more than one panel can be really fun and the result can be really surprising.
2. Replace Old Panel
Before you start the installation, you should remove the old panels. You may need professional help to do this. Try to combine the old and new panels to make different final look and style so do not remove the entire old panels. Leave some and utilize it.
3. Measure the Bathroom
Now, we need to measure the bathroom. Get the exact size of the bathroom, the height, width, corner, and all surfaces you want to cover with new panels. Once you get the size, fit it with your selected panels. Do not miss a detail and do it right.
4. Test the Size
Buy several of the panels to test it. Try to fit it on your vacant wall and see if the entire surface is well covered and the size exactly matches. If it is right already, then you can buy the rests of the panel and get ready for the installation.
5. Press the Panels
You will need construction adhesive. Apply it on the studs or the wall covering, and then place the panels. Press the entire panels and do it firmly. You need it to be firm so that it will not fall off later when you hang mirror and stuff.
6. Caulk and Molding
Caulk will helps a lot in making the installation totally waterproof. Add some caulk between the panels. Then, you can proceed to mold the gap between panels. It helps the panels to avoid rotting and the water will not be seen through it.
7. Additional Features
Leave your panels for several hours. It helps the entire parts to be firm and good. By then, you can start hanging the other features like mirror, tower hanger, shower curtain, and many others. Design the position first, and try to make functional but different arrangements.
Those tips enable you to make decorative wall panels by yourself. Why do you have to panel it like it commonly looks if you can do more?
