As for tiles vs panels it depends on the overall look you want. Our bathroom was mainly tiled so the panels added a nice contrast / feature. Had we gone tiles all round it would have looked a little too tile-ey…. if that’s such a word :confused:

I'm specifically wondering about the seal strips that go at the bottom i.e. the junction to the shower tray (or bath).

Do people recommend using them or just butting up against the tray?

I just butt them up to the tray...great care, plenty of silicone and the weight of the panels squishes the sealant out nicely.

Did you use the sealing strips at the bottom or just silicone in?
I followed the panel makers recommendation which was iirc a 10mm bedding of the PU colour matched sealant they provided.
I did use a sealant strip on the back of the shower tray to seal it to the wall and the panels, just as a belt and braces thing. But you can't see that, it's just behind the panel.

Hi, I have read these panels can be fixed direct to the wooden frame if I remove the plasterboard so I end up with a bigger shower area, is this right and advisable please?
