Bathroom Splashbacks

Bathroom splashbacks are an essential part of any bathroom and are a modern and affordable alternative to traditional bathroom tiles.

As well as bathroom panels, acrylic plastic is also commonly used for shower panels and shower screens due to its versatility and waterproof properties.

We stock clear acrylic, colour splashbacks, mirror acrylic and metallic acrylic, which have been carefully designed and produced to suit your distinctive tastes, your bathroom style and your exact specifications.

3. Best uses of acrylic in bathrooms

Acrylic bathroom panels are versatile in that they can be used all around the bathroom. Here are some of the best uses of acrylic in bathrooms:

Shower panels

A great benefit of using acrylic in a bathroom is that they are extremely easy to clean and get rid of watermarks, making it ideal for use as an acrylic shower panel. Shower panels are non-porous, therefore protects the walls in your bathroom from water damage. Shower splashbacks are easy to install and are extremely hygienic. They are perfect for any wet room or bathroom!

Shower screens

A plastic shower screen acts as a barrier between your bath/shower and bathroom, to prevent water from escaping and splashing into the bathroom while you’re having a shower.

An acrylic shower screen is a more permanent fitting than a shower curtain, making it the preferred option for any bathroom.

Bath Panels

Plastic bath panels are a practical method of concealing unsightly bathtub fittings and pipework in your bathroom and refreshing the appearance of your bath without having to spend too much money.

It also prevents you from having to deal with costly repairs, as acrylic bath panels prevent splashed water from dripping outside the bathtub and flowing underneath the bathtub.

4. How to measure your bathroom for a plastic splashback

Once you have decided which areas of your bathroom you would like to add bathroom splashback panels to, you will need to start measuring. Begin by drawing out the area on a piece of paper with all measurements jotted down. Make sure to include any parts that require cutouts, including shaver sockets or bathroom pipework.

If your bathroom splashback is to be fitted adjacent to a cupboard, we recommend leaving a 1mm gap to ensure the panel fits and there is minimal movement. This gap can then be filled with sealant later on. To avoid inconsistent gaps, you’ll also need to check that all surfaces and cupboards are level.

If you require fabrication on your bathroom splashbacks (cut-outs and holes) then please email a basic drawing to [email protected] and one of our expert staff will provide a quotation. You can find our guide to bathroom splashbacks here.

6. Acrylic Splashback Installation

Installing your bathroom splashback is extremely quick and mess-free. All you have to do is simply put the panel in place and fit. It’s that easy to install, that you don’t need to be a qualified tradesman to fix them to the wall. If you need assistance in installing the splashback, you can contact us and we will advise you on the best way to get your desired result.

Once you’ve cut your acrylic sheet or your custom cut sheet has been delivered, you’ll need to apply it to the wall. First, you’ll need to ensure that all surfaces are clean, dry and free from dust and dirt - for a smoother application.

You’ll then need to peel back the protective plastic from the back of the acrylic sheet. Now apply your chosen adhesive and carefully position your splashback sheet into place.
