Sheathing bathroom PVC panels

Why I chose PVC panels?They have a number of positive qualities, namely:

  • price.Plastic panels are much cheaper than other decorative materials;
  • easy, quick installation, which can carry even a person with no experience;
  • hygienic properties and environmental friendliness of modern plastics.Since the smooth surface lacking pores therein that microorganisms do not grow;
  • variety of choices.To date, more than enough, you can choose a monochromatic color scheme, as well as create a whole work of art on their walls.

When facing panels, in contrast to the wall tiles are not necessarily aligned, the main thing - to take the thick bars, which will not be repeated irregularities of your walls, and will create a new smooth layer.
