    "We are specialists in bathroom panels, one of the other answers said stick to tiles as they rot, that is only if you install the ply laminate type, there is all plastic ones on the market which is what we install and do not rot. The misconception of many people is they are easy to fit, this is not true if you want a flawless finish, it's best to get the professionals in as we have seen many DIY bodges. The average bathroom costs around £600 for the materials and usually around £1000 to fit, please bare in mind if you want every wall done, then the toilet, basin and any wall cabinets or mirrors will need to be taken out, it would be a hash for anyone to try and cut around these items.
    Hope this helps."

    "Dear customer,
    I would recommend to use tiles rather than the panels. The panels are expensive for what they are and have a tendency to rot from the inside out. They are made from laminate and ply, where they join and meet, generally we have to silicone the joint but it will not last. If you wish to prevent mould, I suggest to use mould resistant grout and silicone with tiles.
    I hope that helps.

    Kind regards,
