Client Bathroom Wall panelling Makeover

The Wall Panelling Company looks back at a makeover from 2011 where we transformed a small bathroom with wall panelling. 

Bathroom Wall Panels

Barnet Hertfordshire 2011

Our clients were keen to create a new bathroom with as little disruption to their lives as possible and still making the project cost efficient. The main problem was the way the previous owners had fully tiled the bathroom and our clients dreaded the thought of removing all the old tiles and then getting the walls re-plastered.

Their first thought was to employ different companies to install the panelling, the plumbing and to do the decorating, however they were also mindful that being a first floor flat, having a young baby and both working that this could prove difficult to achieve and project manage.


That’s when they contacted The Wall Panelling Company.




Whilst on our website our clients could see that we could offer the quality workmanship that they were seeking and we also ticked an extra box, as we are members of the Guild Of Master Craftsmen, a guild which represents skill, integrity, quality and service.

On first meeting with our clients, we discussed many options for the room; but settled for a simple Heritage wall panel design with a dado rail at a height of approximately 1150 mm thus avoiding any clashes with taps and their new toilet.

We agreed to use a 6 mm Medite Moisture resistant MDF panels for the walls to cover and hide all the old tiles.

Adding the panelling and dado to the bottom of the room and a cornice to the ceiling makes the room look bigger and more elegant than ever before.

 The Wall Panelling Company also offered to undertake the whole project and install all the new pipework, plumb in their new toilet, sink, stylish slipper bath and lay their flooring.

All carpentry was undertaken on site so that the panels could be scribed and fitted exactly, also allowing for us to box and hide any ugly pipes that would be left on show.

Our clients had chosen Cath Kidston Blue Spot Tiles for the floor and as part of the project we also laid these stylish vinyl floor tiles onto a new ply boarding which we fixed to the old floorboards.


Our Work

Supplying panelling products and mouldings direct to your door.

The panelling was painted with a quality white eggshell and the colour above the dado was to be painted with Farrow & Ball Green Blue No.84 and the bath was painted firstly with a metal primer to protect, then with Farrow & Ball Down Pipe N026. a perfect contrasting colour.


The Medite boards are designed to give an excellent paint finish, to achieve this they first required sanding and filling prior to any paint applications. Our decorator firstly primed all the walls before applying two undercoats, and a final topcoat, using fine sandpaper & wire wool in between, this produced a high-quality finish.


Heritage Bathroom Wall Panels the overall work took just over 12 days to complete with minimal fuss and little upheaval to our clients and their home.


The true success of this project can be attributed to our clients, who purchased quality fittings and fixtures and had a eye for detail, colour, design conjoined with the work of our fitting team.
