Bath panel storage ideas
If you have a small bathroom, storage space is at a premium.
That’s why it makes sense to fit some in wherever possible. So, why not transform your bath panel into a little storage unit to get some extra towel room?
All you need is some material and a bit of waterproofing. You’ll get a gorgeous, and cheap, wooden bath panel with storage space.

Wooden bath panel ideas
If you are a fan of a clean wooden look, plywood can be a good choice for a cheap wooden bath panel. It’s much more inexpensive than wood and is easy to protect from water damage.
If you’re feeling handy, you can measure out the plywood and fit it yourself. Just be sure to make sure you have waterproofed it in order to protect it.
If you don’t feel confident taking it on yourself, you may want to call in an expert.
Wooden planks for your bath panel
If you’re looking for bath panel ideas for DIY, wooden planks can be something you can try your hand at.
The image here isn’t quite a bath panel, but the wooden sauna look might be the new look for your bathroom. And, it doesn’t have to be expensive either.
Pallets are both inexpensive and easy to find and using them to create a cheap wooden bath panel is a great way of recycling. You can then finish them off with a lick of paint. Or, give them a good waterproof finish and enjoy the rustic wood look.
Of course, if you aren’t confident you’d be able to do justice to this project, find someone in your area who can!
Tiled bath panel ideas
A tiled bath panel can look classically attractive, and it doesn’t have to cost a lot either.
If you’re planning to retile your floor or walls, you could easily plan in extra tiles. This also gives the bathroom a planned, cohesive look.

Fit a cheap white bath panel
A cheap white bath panel made of uPVC is a good go-to option, but who says it has to remain white? You could give your bath a pop of colour depending on the look you’re going for.
For the price of some paint and a paintbrush, you can transform your bath panel into something completely different.
If you’re creative, you can paint textures, murals, or patterns for a DIY bath panel that’s unique.
Alternatively, you can find a painter near you to help.
Inexpensive tongue and groove bath panel
Tongue and groove bath panels can instantly give a brand new look to your bathroom, especially if your current panel is plain.
These panels are easily available at most hardware and DIY stores.
Plus, they are made of wood so you can give them a coat of (waterproof) paint in the colour you want!
How to make your own bath panel
One way to create your own bath panel is by using vinyl stickers. Simply get hold of a plain bath panel and fit the vinyl stickers over the top. Voila, a cheap and easy makeover!
The bonus is that you can get them in so many colours and patterns, so you can select pretty much any look you want.
You can also get vinyl stickers to imitate tiles, stone, or wood. What’s more is that they’re easy to apply and also easy to maintain too, winner winner!
