Bushboard’s Nuance panels are manufactured using a core that is 100% impervious to water, eliminating any danger of warping or leaking. The panels can be used for walls, around the bath or basin, inside a shower enclosure or to create a true wet room. Because there is no need for trims, Nuance panels present a sleek, seam free look that is especially effective in smaller bathrooms. The panelling is easy to clean too – no grout lines means no grime, lime-scale or mould; all that is needed is a wipe down with a damp cloth and mild detergent.
In time trials conducted by Bushboard, fitting Nuance bathroom wall panelling was six times faster than ceramic tiling. According to Which? Magazine, tiling a 7ft by 7ft small bathroom can take one to three days and costs up to £800. A large 13ft by 7ft room would cost around £1315 to tile and take three to six days. Add the cost of the tiles and the noise and disruption involved in having the work done and it becomes an unattractive prospect for hoteliers and B&B owners who risk losing bookings with rooms out of action.
Nuance panelling can be installed in as little as four hours for an average bathroom – and even be used to cover old tiles. And thanks to their simple installation process, the panels can be fitted by a competent DIYer.
The Nuance range is supported by a full-colour brochure that shows the range of designs and finishes available and has detailed plans on how to create different looks including hotel style, a family bathroom and a wet room. The panels come with a 15-year guarantee and matching laminate work surfaces are available to complete the look.
Commercial Director Neil Horton explained: “KBB is an important industry platform and an ideal place for us to continue showing the qualities of our bathroom panels to retailers and designers.”kbb | kbb.co.uk
