Pairing perfectly with lighter tones, we recommend styling up these wall panels with white cotton and matte black fixtures for a clean finish.

All Nuova bathroom products are supplied class 2 fire rated as standard; however, they can be tailored for Class 1 or Class 0 if required.
Try out the look of wall panelling at home with the help of our free laminate sample service.
Delivered straight to your address within two to five working days, these A7 offcuts allow you to get a feel for the texture and appearance of your chosen panel.
What are Nuova wall panels made of?
Manufactured in the UK by our team of highly skilled craftsmen, Nuova wall panels are made with a unique foam blend core - offering a lightweight and greener alternative to similar polymer-based boards.
Décors are then applied in the form of high pressure laminate.
Can you do a whole bathroom with wall panels?
Yes, our wall panels are completely waterproof, making them perfectly suited to shower, wet room and bathroom applications.
At its last inspection, our Nuova panels have lasted over five years completely submerged in water with no damage or delamination.
Our simple installation method, via our tongue and groove system or through use of our panel trims, makes application to larger areas completely seamless.
Which edge should I choose for my bathroom wall panels?
Whichever finish you choose for your wall panel edge, you are guaranteed the same quality system. Typically it will be the type of bathroom project you are undertaking that will dictate the finish of your wall panelling.
Square edge panels are clean cut and must be joined via trims (found within our bathroom accessories section), these are most typically used to complete shower areas. Please select our Selkie/ Ancona trims for Nuova products.
Meanwhile, Tongue and Groove panels are designed to slot in seamlessly to each other, allowing for panels to be applied to larger wall spaces without disruption.
Please note: During a Tongue & Groove panel installation, Nuova colour match sealant must be used on all joints.
How do you install wall panelling?
The process behind wall panel installation is relatively straightforward, suited to both DIY enthusiasts and trade professionals.
Beginning with a corner area, the first panel is applied to the wall with adhesive, with a panel trim and sealant holding the panel in place.
Examples: For a 2 panel corner sited shower you will require: 1 Internal Corner and 2 End Cap trims. For a 3 panel 'U' shaped enclosure you will require: 2 Internal Corners and 2 End Caps.
You may also want to consider using a Panseal Kit, also available in the Accessories section, to seal the bottom joint between panels, bath edges and shower trays.
Many fitters prefer to sit the panels onto the shower tray and use silicone to seal, but as it is essential to prevent water ingress we recommend using the Panseal Kit to give you a better, longer lasting seal with a cleaner, more aesthetic finish.
And don't forget to order your silicone sealant and wall panel adhesive - also available in the Accessories section.
Which trims do I use with my Nuova bathroom wall panels?
For any Nuova wall panel project, please select our Selkie/Ancona range trims.

To cater to our various laminate wall panel décors, we offer a variety of trim finishes. Choose from a satin anodised, white powder coated, black powder coated or a luxury polished aluminium effect to achieve your perfect look.
