Are tile wall panels for the kitchen safe?
Customers often ask us if installing PVC wall panels in the kitchen is safe. Particularly if they are used behind the hob or the sink as a kitchen splashback. The answer is yes. There are three major advantages you get from using PVC wall panels for the kitchen:
1. Fire-resistant: PVC is one of the least combustible materials you can install in your kitchen. The heat from a hob will not directly affect them with normal day to day use. If you are unfortunate enough to get a pan fire on your hob the most that can happen is some distortion or charring.
2. Hygienic: Unlike normal tiles, kitchen wall panels have no grouted joints and the surface is smooth meaning that a wipe over with a cloth and some soapy water will keep them sparkling and hygienic. With edge trims and corner trims the normal nooks and crannies that harbour mould, germs and bacteria are completely eliminated.
3. Waterproof: when properly installed your kitchen wet wall panels are completely waterproof. Moisture and steam that create condensation are prevented from penetrating through to your walls and damaging them.
Can I install tile wall panels for kitchens over existing tiles?
Our PVC wall cladding comes in thicknesses between 5mm and 10mm. This means that with such a slim profile you are not losing much space when you install them directly over your existing ceramic tile walls. With the right adhesive and some basic hand tools you can cover up those old tiles in no time at all. When you install them directly over existing tiles, you will create a completely new layer with its own waterproof seal that will prevent condensation from finding its way between layers to cause problems with mould and mildew.
Imagine how much extra work and mess you save. Forget knocking your old tiles off the wall and say goodbye to messy tiling adhesive and grouting. PVC kitchen wall panels make upgrading your kitchen space a much quicker and cleaner job.
Keeping PVC panelling for kitchen walls clean
Everybody understands that hygiene and cleanliness are super-important in the kitchen. PVC panels provide many advantages in this respect. Keeping up on your kitchen hygiene is quicker and easier.
Cleaning PVC wall panels only requires: -Warm, soapy water -A sponge -A dry microfibre cloth
The process of cleaning PVC wall panels is incredibly straightforward: First, wipe away any dust or debris on the surface with your dry microfibre cloth. Then wipe the panels with a cloth dipped in warm soapy water and finally dry them off with a clean, dry microfibre cloth. Avoiding harsh and abrasive cleaners means that not only do you keep your panels in pristine condition but you also avoid harmful chemicals that could damage your health if they escape into the atmosphere.
