Homeowners redecorating kitchens and bathrooms are turning their backs on messy tiles – and choosing wall paneling instead.
Improving these parts of the home has often meant stressful weekends spent chipping off old tiles, mixing tile grout and making a mess – only to finish with wonky tiles.
But rapidly increasing numbers of people are ditching the traditional method and choosing instead simple wall cladding panels – which are also cheaper.
Wall cladding supplier MP Plastic Building Products said they have seen a staggering 300 PER CENT rise in sales of one product. And customers are bombarding them with orders for other items in their range of decorative wall cladding.
Managing Director Mick Brightmore said: ‘Sales of this product have gone through the roof this year. We recently introduced a hollow cladding range, as an alternative to the solid click lock system.
‘This now means we can offer a wall cladding system to suit all budgets. In the last 12 months we have seen an increase in sales of around 300% on this product.
‘We also have a range of PVC wall cladding for commercial kitchens and clean areas, which has also shown significant growth. Architects and consultants are now specifying PVC as opposed to Stainless Steel in most instances.’
Decorative wall paneling can be used to create a stunning showpiece in your home, at a fraction of the cost of tiling. This system requires minimal surface preparation and can even be used to cover existing tiles.
The cladding has a unique click locking system, which cuts out the need for jointing trims and makes the joint virtually invisible.
They can be cleaned with a cloth and require no maintenance.
MP Platsic Building Products also sell PVC hygienic wall cladding which comes in panel form with trims and profiles in white, pastel and gloss colours.
Mick said that the vast range of colours and patterns make it a much better option.
He added: ‘Click lock flooring and ceiling panels make a wonderful addition, allowing you to create a truly unique and stunning space.’
