Bushboard Nuance Bathroom Wall Panelling FAQ’s

What is Bushboard Nuance?

Bushboard Nuance is a laminate panelling made with a patented core that is impervious to water. With Nuance, you can be 100% confident that your panels will be 100% waterproof.

Add to that the high-performance laminate surface, plus installation with nuance waterproof adhesive and sealant BB Complete, and you have a shower area that is guaranteed for 15 years to cope with thousands of hours of showering.

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.

The panels are so versatile that you can use them to create a true wet room, to panel out a shower enclosure, go around the bath or even behind the washbasin.
