Bath Panel


Postby Danc » Sun Jun 15, 2008 1:36 pm

Hi, I am after a bit of help and advice. Having installed a new bath I need to fit a bath panel which needs to be painted the same colour as the bathroom. I dont want to spend money on a ready made panel just to cover it.

What is the best type of wood to make a bath panel from which will look OK painted?

Many thanks....

i've made a few bath panels using pine tongue and groove. works well, looks good, easy to make to the correct size and fit and takes paint well.

You can make a small frame out of 1"x1" or 2"x1" this will normaly just fit under the outer lip of the bath. Just 4 sides for outer frame and one vertical piece in middle then attach a 4mm sheet of mdf cut to size. Can also use 4mm plywood but paint finish on mdf is much better. If colour isn't too unusual e.g white you can buy hardboard already coloured in various basic colours, again approx 4mm thick.
