Transformative bath panel ideas for your next renovation
If you’re looking for bath panel ideas, we’ve put together some beautiful designs to inspire your next renovation.
Despite a tub usually being the feature of a bathroom, it’s often overlooked when it comes to design ideas. Integrating a well-placed bath panel is transformative, which we’re about to evidence in our below ideas and suggestions.
Read on for the latest bath panel trends, tips and tricks!
Tiled bath panel ideas
This modern bathroom makes the most of mosaic bath tiles by integrating the same pattern of the feature wall onto the bath. Grey and white stone tiles add interest and texture, while the clean lines and dark wood creates a spa vibe. We love the inset shelves with humidity-loving ferns too!
Grey bathroom panel inspiration
This contemporary design makes the most of clashing textures perfectly. From the hexagonal floor tiles to the grey wall and bath panels, it’s clean, stylish and tranquil. The floating shelf ‘warms’ the space, while the back-lit mirror complements the overall aesthetic. This is a great design for smaller bathrooms in need of extra space!
DIY bath panel ideas
When it comes to designing and installing your own bath panels, the trick is to start off simple. Custom built MDF panels like this are a great foundation for almost any design. Then, all you need to do is buy some waterproof tile adhesive for your chosen tiles and attach them. (Or just hire one of our professionals to help!)
Bath side panel ideas
This wooden bath panel is modern and easy to install if you’re going down a DIY route. Minimal, clean, and warm, it adds colour and interest to this otherwise stark bathroom. The trick with wooden bath panels is to ensure it’s sealed and waterproofed to avoid warping. We like the matching runner and mirror too!
Corner bath panel ideas
When it comes to corner bath panel ideas, a neat design trick is to seamlessly integrate the floor tiles and bath tiles. This design leads the eye nicely by creating a path to the corner bath. It also opens up the space a little more by creating the illusion of depth.
Curved bath panel ideas
This traditional meets modern bathroom design is an excellent example of how integrated patterns and textures add style, class, depth and interest. We love the vertical bath panels, which match the central floor design and ‘cascading’ wall tiles. Vertical shapes give the illusion of height and floating shelves create floorspace.
Bath panel shelving design ideas
This year is all about multi-use furniture designs. So, why not stay ahead of the curve by combining style and practicality? Turn your bath panels into a storage solution and never forget your towels again! We love the aesthetic of this bathroom, from the integrated bath and shelves to the mosaic tiles and wooden feature panels.
Wooden panel shelving unit
Wood might not be your first choice of material when it comes to bathroom designs. However, technology offers us the same aesthetic wrapped up in a waterproof outer layer. This gorgeous design is a tranquil and rustic retreat. It’s an aesthetic that keeps you warm even in the winter months.
Neutral bath panel designs
These stone-effect contemporary and neutral bath panels are peaceful and stylish. We love how they match the floor and help create depth, while the clever ladder shelving unit and fake flowers add extra interest into this otherwise small space. The elevated towel rack and grey shutter blinds are also great space saving tricks.
Colourful bath panel ideas
Blend your bathtub blend into its surroundings by integrating it with the rest of your decor. These turquoise tiles remind us of the ocean. We love how they feature heavily in this bathroom design to create a striking aesthetic that makes us want to go surfing. Check out that surface shimmer!
Single bath panel idea
This elegant and simple inset bath panel is perfect for smaller tubs that take up one wall. Its classic design lets the rest of your bathroom take centre stage, whether it’s a cobalt feature wall, a marble unit or some brushed grey and white wall tiles. Everything in this room works beautifully.
Grey minimalist bath panel design
It’s all about texture when it comes to adding interest in small bathrooms. These vertical bath panels are slightly larger than the floor panels, while the mosaic wall tiles and floating cabinet and sink both complement each other and create clear space distinctions. It’s an effective design trick worth incorporating in smaller rooms.
We hope you found these bath panel ideas as inspiring as we did!
