Nuance laminate panelling is an ideal alternative to tiling. There are no grout lines to scrub at and day to day cleaning is no more than a simple wipe down. Nuance panels come in a choice of sizes that make them flexible in both design and use in any bathroom. They can be used to panel out the wall around the bath and even around the bath itself. The large format panels with postformed outer edges mean there are no extrusions and few visible joints to detract the eye.
Sealed joints. When installing a window in a tiled shower enclosure, make sure the joint between the jamb and the cementboard is sufficiently sealed with silicone caulk and a waterproofing membrane. The membrane bridging the two materials creates a stable substrate for the tile.
