One of this year's biggest bathroom trends – Terrazzo Stone. With its neutral base and slightly understated pattern, it's the ideal introduction to the Terrazzo craze. Pair up with peachy tones, as well as blues and greens when accessorising.
A modern solution, Rearo’s flagship Selkie Board range offers to luxury alternative to tiling for bathrooms, shower areas and wet rooms.
Manufactured in Scotland to the highest standards, this waterproof system boasts a comprehensive 10-year guarantee.
And, with no requirement for grouting, Selkie shower panels require only minimal maintenance.
All Selkie products are supplied class 2 fire rated as standard; however, they can be tailored for Class 1 or Class 0 if required.
Which edge should I select for my project?
Selkie panels are available in both a square and tongue & grooved edge.
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.
Meanwhile, Tongue and Grooved 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, Selkie colour match sealant must be used on all joints.
What is the difference between plywood and mdf?
In general, the difference comes from the structure of both materials. Plywood is the traditional choice, made from multiple layers of natural thin veneer that are glued together. Meanwhile, MDF is engineered by breaking down hardwood or softwood residuals into wood fibres, which are then combined with wax and resin to create a smooth surface.
Typically, MDF costs less than plywood, due to its manmade structure, however both materials boast the same waterproof qualities.
Accessories you may need
There are a wide range of corner and edging trims available to finish your panels to perfection. Choose from a satin anodised, white powder coated, black powder coated or a luxury polished aluminium effect to achieve your perfect finish. These Selkie/Ancona range trims can be found in the Accessories section of this website - click on the Wall Board Trims category.
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.
