What is Cladding for your home? | Why You Should Choose It

by Thiago Agostinho

Is your bathroom looking a little tired? A little rundown perhaps? Then perhaps you should consider renovating. New walls, new furniture and accessories, possibly even a redesign; it’ll be a whole new room before you know it. A new bathroom that you’ll love, a space you’ll be happy to spend time and relax in,

Redecorating can seem like a challenge, particularly if you have a limited budget. The cost of new baths, showers, taps and tiles can be expensive and a drain on your resources. Tiles can be a real headache to any bathroom design. But all is not lost, because you don't need to tile a bathroom wall if your budget is limited or if you’re struggling to decide what design you want.

Bathroom cladding from Bath Clad offers you the opportunity to renovate and redesign your bathroom space without breaking the bank. We're here to make bathroom tiles a thing of the past with efficient and effective cladding. If you’re trying to find out more about cladding and how it can transform your bathroom space, then we’d be delighted to hear from you. Our high-quality decorative cladding and borders are ideal for your space. 

What is Cladding?

Cladding is an alternative to the traditional tile and is made out of UPVC rather than ceramics. This is the key difference between them because they are easier to install, cost-effective and simple to maintain. While some might think that the plastic the cladding is made from might look scruffy, this couldn’t be further from the case. 

Scrolling through our catalogue, you can see our broad range of decorative cladding. We even have stunning tile effect cladding, but only you will know that it’s UPVC. With cladding, you can have it all, a brand new look with all the benefits of avoiding grout and tiles. Not only this but you’ll be able to affordably create the ideal bathroom.

Why Choose Bathroom Cladding?

Fast and Effective Installation

One of the concerns that many people have about redoing their bathrooms is that it takes a long time to complete. As a result, you’ll be without a bathroom for maybe weeks or even months. By the end of this process, you’ll just want your bathroom. But much of the time taken for your bathroom renovation is spent on the tiling. You need to cut the tiles, apply them to the surface, grout them; it can be tedious.

Fortunately, cladding means that you don’t have to wait. It can be installed in your bathroom swiftly. Our state of the art tongue and groove easily clip in together, taking only a third of the time. And there’s no need to wait for the grout to dry because there’s no grout needed. You don’t have to worry about preparing the walls for your cladding. The old tiling doesn’t even need to be removed; you can simply fit the cladding over the top, sealing off the old designs. Not only does this make it far easy to install but it also makes sure that your walls are protected from the risk of dampness.

Sleek, Modern Designs

All of our waterproof UPVC bathroom cladding options come in a variety of different designs. You’re going to be spoilt for choice, from sparkly cladding to marble effect and even red tartan. So whatever style you have in mind, you’ll be able to find the ideal cladding at Bath Clad. We want you to be inspired by our modern looks, making your choice easy and creating your perfect bathroom. What’s great about them is that you really won’t be able to tell the difference between cladding and authentic original ceramics or marbles. 

Easy to Maintain

Creating a stunning bathroom is all well and good but you want to make sure that it’s easy to clean. While tiles are great to look at, they’re incredibly difficult to clean. Mould and mildew can get caught in the grout, making it tough to clean and it is easy for them to become stained. With cladding, you don’t have to worry about these issues. All you need is a quick wipe down and your cladding will continue to look pristine.
