Ceiling cladding is the perfect choice for any bathroom.
Although cladding is used extensively on bathroom walls it is also the perfect choice for anyone who never wants to paint a ceiling again. It is completely maintenance-free and is available in a range of bright and attractive designs.
As you can see in the photos above the effects are simply stunning. Not only that but they will continue to look this way. Years will pass by and they will not deteriorate. And this will apply even though bathrooms and showers are the most demanding of environments.
All that this cladding requires is a quick wipe over with a damp cloth now and again. Installation is a piece of cake with a minimum of fuss and disruption.
It is perfect for use in bathrooms but can also be used on the ceilings of kitchens and shower rooms. There are matt finish panels that will look good in any room of the home. You don’t have to limit its use to rooms with high moisture.
Ceiling Cladding Designs
White cladding is by far the most common colour for use on ceilings.
But there is no hard and fast rule to say that you can’t use something more colourful. Some have used black cladding on ceilings which gives a very dramatic effect.
The main reason that white is used is that it makes the room feel larger Many UK bathrooms are small so every designs trick that you can use will help. The lighter the ceiling the higher the room feels. Darker colours will tend to make the ceiling seem s if it is lower.
But you don’t have to use plain gloss white cladding.
There are matt white panels, white cladding with chrome strips, wood effects and marble effects. There are also longer panels for larger bathrooms and kitchens. These are ideal if you want a continuous run without having to utilise a joining strip.

Nailing is less common as it is difficult to hammer accurately when working overhead. Plus you don’t want to hit the panel surface with a hammer as you will damage it. You could try using a nail gun but you might find it is too powerful.
Stapling is very fast but you need the ceiling to have the right substrate – plasterboard or wood is perfect. If you have a plastered ceiling you can sometimes still use staples. The gun will shoot the staple through the plaster into the board behind.
Sticking is fast and easy and enables the cladding to go up over rough surfaces. You might need to support the material while the adhesive is setting. Alternatively you can use a few staples to hold it in place.
