Damaged or stained walls really impact the look of your bathroom; upgrading your walls to a modern and durable material is the best option to make your bathroom look more classy and clean. You can use multiple materials to enhance the look of your bathroom and make it durable for more prolonged use. 

Reason for Damaged Bathroom Walls

First of all, if you’re looking to repair your walls: it’s useful to know what caused them to deteriorate in the first place. There can be multiple reasons for the damaged bathroom walls or ceilings, one of which could be bad infrastructure or water damage. Some of the main reasons for water damage include leaking pipes, overflowing sinks, bathtubs, or heavy rains. These issues can be prevented long-term by getting high-quality work done during the remodeling process.

5 Best Materials

Some of the durable and easy to maintain materials for walls include the following.


microcement in bathroom

This is the material that gives your bathroom the look of natural stone without costing you as much as natural stones. Microcement is also suitable for ceilings, flooring, or any other possible surface you can imagine.

This material is a great choice for walls, and it also makes your bathroom look more spacious. The bathroom usually suffers from constant humidity, and in that case, micro cement is an ideal option because it is naturally resistant to humidity, and it doesn’t get spoiled with vapors and moisture as well. Microcement is famous for its versatility, and it also allows you to choose from multiple textures and colors according to the desired theme,

Laminate Panels

These walls also have antibacterial and antifungal properties, which prevent the growth of bacteria, fungi, and mold from keeping your bathroom safe and healthy. Laminate panels are water resistant and one of the most hygienic materials available for bathroom walls. These panels are also available in a wide range of sizes, hues, colors, and textures so you can create the right aesthetic appeal.

Stone Slabs

If you’re dreaming of the most luxurious and modern look for your bathroom, then stone slabs will make your dream come true. Stone slabs are a little more expensive than other materials, but these are easy to maintain. We recommend marble or granite for a premium desired look.


paint bathroom walls

Paint is the most convenient and most accessible option for bathroom walls. If you don’t find your walls compatible with ceramic tiles or any other material, you can simply paint the plaster walls in the desired color according to your theme. You can also add some texture and experiment with colors to create a unique style just for you.

How to choose a suitable material for bathroom walls?

  • While remodeling or renovating your bathroom, choosing the right material for bathroom walls from different materials can be a little confusing. Here are some tips to keep in mind to help you make your decision. 
  • Consider the style you’re looking for to match your theme and decide on a material that will go with your overall interior and hardware.
  • Decide the size of the tiles you’re looking for. 
  • If you’re looking to mix and match the tiles, then never use more than three variations. 
  • If you have a separate shower space, then you should consider choosing different tiles for the section to add contrast.
  • While choosing the material, you must consider the maintenance requirement of the tiles. Sometimes the most premium materials require the most upkeep, so know what you’re getting yourself into!

Installation & Replacement

It is always recommended to get professional assistance to get the bathroom walls installed or replaced. However, this process involves your complete bathroom, which can damage different parts of the bathroom. Therefore, it is essential to hire a professional and let the experts do the job for the durable and long-term maintenance of the bathroom walls.
