Installing Bathroom Wall Paneling
Bathroom wall paneling can quickly change the appearance of a bathroom. Whether you add waterproof panels behind a bathtub or set up decorative wall panels throughout the room, the installation process is basically the same. Most bathroom panels come in 4-by-8-foot sheets.
Set the bathroom wall paneling in a nearby room to acclimatize for at least 24 to 48 hours before starting. Stand the panels at the end or lay them flat with scrap wood between them as distances. Remove all fixtures on the wall. Remove electrical outlet cover with a screwdriver. Take all previous wallpapers, in addition to wallpaper and paint, away to plaster or cement auxiliary board. Use a spatula or scraper to remove any remaining pieces. Use a kettle to gently remove all the trim and casting of floors, ceilings, doors and windows.
Repair the bathroom wall paneling if necessary. If Gypsum shows signs of mold, find the leak and fix it before proceeding. Locate the rules with a control detector. Mark each stud with a chalk line. Start the corner of the bathroom as you first see when entering the room. Hold a panel in place together with one level to make sure the corner is loose. If it’s not, use a fine spirit saw to cut away all that’s necessary to make it go; cut from the finished side of the panel to avoid hooking. Use a circular saw to sow the panel so its 1/4 inch short on the floor. When using a circular saw, cut from the back of panels.
