Creating YOUR Own Space : The Bath Panel

Creating YOUR Own Space : The Bath Panel

, by Abbie Price, 2 min reading time

We are in the middle of an economic crisis where new bathrooms are not cheap to come by, not to mention the labour involved too. However, we deserve to have a space no matter how big or small which is clutter free, gleaming, and allows us to relax in tranquility. Instead of scrolling through Instagram for #transformationtuesday, why not have a Transformation Tuesday every day of the week in your own home?

This new year, begin to plan your idyllic space where you can take the time to create and mould without breaking the bank. Start out small, a space in your home that could do with an up-cycle, a revamp, a small project where mistakes are not costly and where you can learn valuable DIY skills. Not every job needs an experienced handyman or woman, just someone with a vision and determination to achieve their own home goals.

The bath can be a great place to start! If your old bath panel is not cooperating by flexing out of place every time you breathe near it, then that is the best place to don the dungaree overalls and DIY Hat. This is exactly where I started and having no experience in DIY versus a bath panel that did not want to do its job, I went for it and learned a lot from a small project.

To get started, the materials you will need will be a couple of 2.6m long wall panels (a design that represents you and fits in with your bathroom theme), two lengths of timber wood (for the frame), some silicone, two edging strips and one angle trim. Already you have everything you need to create your own bath panel. As said earlier, this does not have to be a ‘call the plumber’ type job, this can be your own little project at creating your own safe space.

The tools you will need;

  • Silicone Gun
  • Stanley Knife/Finetooth Handsaw
  • Measuring Tape

For a step by step guide, you can watch youtube videos on how to create your own bath panel. My go to was the ‘How to fit Bathroom Cladding Around A Bath’. You can watch the link here; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LyBqYJ-vUL8

The panel design I used to create my look was the White Marble Tile Groove Bathroom Wall Panel, and the trims I used for the corner was a Rigid Angle Chrome PVC Trim and end cap edging for the top and bottom of the bath panel. From start to finish, this took me around half a day to complete and the time flew by.

Now, every time I walk into my bathroom, I get a sense of pride for achieving a look that I soley visualized and created.
