What is Best Wall Covering in a Shower Room

Postby stav1981 » Tue Oct 09, 2018 4:50 pm

I am looking to install a shower in a cupboard we've knocked through into the bathroom.

I've had several quotes now and im a little confused of what is best to attach acyrilic shower panels onto, a timber frame is ready and upon asking some of the bathroom fitters, they say marine ply, some say ply with pva, some have even suggested plasterboard is fine.

I am guessing the shower panels are waterproof anyway so does it really matter ? Is marine ply too excessive just right or just a waste of money? I would like to get some opinions on what to use. Im happy to spend more and get somethign that will last longer but the amount of conflicting information is putting me at a loss at the moment.

anticipating your answers and judgements :D
