Having waterproof walls in your bathroom is important. 

There are a few options when shopping around for new bathroom walls that are waterproof - 

 

1. Single-sheet Plastic

You can buy single-sheet plastic for your bathroom walls in a variety of colors and styles. 

This is often the cheapest option and one a lot of people use to make economy bathrooms.

 

2. Tile

Most commonly used material are tiles. A fully-tiled wall will help ensure your bathroom is waterproof and comes in varied designs. 

Tiles for Bathroom walls can be either ceramic or vitrified. Ceramic are generally more water absorbant than vitrified but designs are significantly more on ceramic tiles. Vitrified Tiles are best suited for flooring but if wants a solid look, one can go with this option.

Tile size is very imporant as it gives shape to the bathroom walls. Most ideal sizes are 2X1 (60cmX30cm), 4X2 (120cmX60cm) or 40cmX80cm minimum 8m thick.

 

3. Acrylic

Can be used around the bathtub or shower area. It is water proof and generally used in white or off-white color.

 

4. Stone

Stone walls add a natural, yet exotic, look and feel to your bathroom, giving off a relaxing vibe. It is very difficult to install and a very expensive option.

 

5. Paint

One should use waterproof painting solutions. Sealant quality is very important as it will keep it free from moisture and decay.
