There are many types of bathroom ceiling panels available so it’s often difficult to know which is the best for your bathroom. It’s fairly safe to say that almost all PVC panels are suitable for use on ceilings, the final choice comes down to the overall design you envisage for you space. We have looked at the various style choices that are available, to help you decide.
Chrome effect bathroom ceiling panels
One of the most popular ranges of bathroom ceiling panels are the chrome effect panels. This style of panel features gloss panels with threads of silver running through at each join. The overall look is a contemporary design that is extremely easy to clean and keep looking like new. The great thing about the chrome effect ranges is that 4m long panels area available, and that allows you to cover longer distances before the need to a joint trim.
Wood effect bathroom ceiling panels
There are two types of wood effect panels available. The first is white clad panels, these panels are smooth white gloss and give the effect of white gloss painted wooden panelling. The second wood effect panel is white ash cladding. The white ash design gives the slightly different effect of white stained wood, and allows the grain to be seen.
As with chrome panels, both these panels designs are available in 4m lengths. Plus, as with all PVC ceiling panels they are easy to install and clean. After all, who wants high maintenance materials that require regular staining or painting?
Classic white ceiling panels
Hands down, classic white is our most popular finish when it comes to ceiling cladding. You love a crisp, gloss white ceiling in your bathrooms. We don’t know if it’s because it’s so easy to keep clean, or if it’s because it can make even the smallest space look bigger – but this range flies out.
If your existing ceiling is dull and tired, or dated artex, then installing classic white ceiling cladding will instantly transform a space. Very often you won’t even need to prepare the ceiling first. Being a classic white, this style of panel is perfect if you are hoping to only change you ceiling; the white gloss design finish will tie in with nearly all bathroom wall and floors designs.
Looking for something more bold?
Remember, you don’t have to stick to the rules and you can use any PVC panels on a ceiling. If it’s a marble ceiling you want, then go for it. If you want mosaic style tiles, who’s to say you can’t have mosaic style tiles? The only thing you have to bear in mind regarding the use of regular PVC panels on ceilings is that you might struggle to find lengths longer than 3m. This means that you may need to consider using H-trims to join two lengths together in order to span the whole room.
