    Wall panels with a Satin hardcoat finish

    DIY Shower & Tub Trim Moldings

    Just like real stone our decorative interior shower and tub wall panel system comes with a variety of trim moldings to dress up your project. There are moldings to finish off the edges of the panels, inside and outside corners, to cover seams between two panels and also to complete window openings and corner and bench seats.

    Standard and Remodeling Trim

    There is a "standard trim" and "remodel option" trim moldings available for our system. They are explained below:

    Standard (SG) trim – The edges of our interior shower and tub wall panels are covered by our trim system. These trim pieces have an "L shape" are designed to overlap the panels. The small lip of the trim returns back to the drywall. This trim makes the installation easier to do (because the panels do not need to be cut perfectly) and also creates the look of real stone, marble or granite.

    Remodel trim option to go over existing ceramic tile or other surface – If you’re looking to adhere our waterproof wall panels over tile or another surface you’ll want to order your system with the “remodel trim” option. In this case the trim moldings have a longer return lip (the short leg of the "L shape" molding is longer than with the standard trim package). This longer lip can be cut to the proper depth to cover all for different tile thicknesses.

    Trim molding size options

    If you need extra trim to work around a window, an corner, or to cover over your shower wall panels here are your optoins:

    • 3" x 96" SG trim to cover over the edge of the 3/8" thick panel
    • 3" x 96" with a 2" lip (for remodeling)
    • 3" x 96" DG seam trim to over between 2 panels
    • 6" x 96" SG trim to cover over the panel edge only
    • 6" x 96" with a 2" lip (for remodeling)
    • 1 1/2" x 96" outside corner trim (L shape)
    • 1 1/2" x 96" inside corner trim (L shape)
    • Window sill trim - 6" (jamb extension) x 96" with a 1" finished lip

    DIY Shampoo shelves & niches, corner seats, and accent strips

    The need to create soap and shampoo niches (either recessed inside the walls or extending out from the walls) is extremely important to have a well functioning and safe space. Our niches are preassembled for easy installation and create the look of real stone without the worries of leaking.

    Installation

    DIY Shower & Tub Wall Installation Process

    One of the important benefits of this system is it provides a quick and easy installation process for a contractor or do it yourself consumer alike. Follow these 4 basic installation steps for a successful hassle-free installation:

    Step 1 – Cut shower & tub wall panels to fit and adhere to walls using polyurethane adhesive – Cut the back walls first, then the side wall panels and attach them with the polyurethane adhesive. In many cases with the DIY kits no cutting will be needed if you have a standard sized tub or shower.

    Step 2 – Cut trim moldings to fit and adhere over edges of panels – Since the trim panels overlap the shower & tub wall panel edges the panel cuts don’t need to be perfect and the trim moldings can be adjusted to be level and plumb. Note - in the DIY standard kits the trim pieces are already pre-cut.

    Step 3 – Install corner shelf – With the standard wall or tub kit you’ll receive one corner shelf. Screw the metal installation brackets into the wall. Then the shelf is installed as a “clamshell” over the bracket.

    Step 4 – Apply 100% silicone sealant to seal all joints – Silicone sealant will be needed where a panel meets another panel or your trim meets a panel. The color match translucent sealant is available with our optional installation kit.
