5 Reasons To Choose Spectrum Cladding

Versatile, waterproof and virtually maintenance-free, our range of decorative cladding is the perfect application for any bathroom project. It’s also a fantastic alternative to tiling. Discover 5 great reasons why you should choose STORM’s decorative cladding below.

Cost-effective solution to tiling

Tiling is painstaking if you intend to do it yourself and most people are very reluctant to pay someone to come in and do the job for them. For these reasons, a lot of people are eager to find an alternative to tiling that does the same job.

Tiling is one of the most expensive parts of bathroom redecoration and tiles can vary hugely (and ridiculously in price). You can often find that boxes of tiles don’t go as far as people think they will and end up spending even more money than what was budgeted for.

If you can offer an alternative to the frustrating and expensive task of tiling then you’re putting yourself in a good place for customers who are desperate for a better option. That’s where decorative cladding comes in.

Decorative cladding is a great solution for anyone looking for a faster, easier and more cost-effective way to decorate their bathroom. The panels are lightweight, simpler to cut to the size you need and adhere to the wall much faster. They also apply in big sections, rather than fiddling around with small tile sections.

Not only do you save time because of all of the above but the product materials are less expensive.

Wide range of cladding choices 


AQ250 wall cladding is the perfect application for bathroom walls and ceilings instead of tiles, as they boast a slim 250mm width, creating a feature from the panelling.

The plastic panelling features a waterproof, hygienic and durable structure with a high-gloss easy to clean surface. They are pretty much maintenance-free. The tongue and groove system helps to provide a neat and secure installation with a lightweight design.

The Aqua 250 range is perfect for bathroom walls and ceilings and comes in a wide range of colours. Order your AQ200/AQ250 colour swatch now.


Our range of AQ1000 decorative cladding is the perfect solution for large scale internal cladding, such as whole bathroom wall or ceiling claddings.

The boards are available in 1m widths. The choice of colour and finishes (including sparkles and marble) provides a luxurious touch and the simple sleek gloss delivers something more subtle and professional looking.

All starter trims, supportive seals and corners make installation fast, efficient and hassle-free.


As great as the cost-effective and manageable maintenance of decorative cladding is, appearance is just important. In the commercial environment, guests base their impressions on interiors and decorative bathroom cladding will have a big impact.

Our AQ10003D wall and ceiling cladding boasts a 3D texture, in a tile or textured effect. Not only can you give the appearance of tiles at a fraction of the cost but the finish is professional and high quality.

From grey brick matt to sandstone matt, this range is designed to impress.


Opulent interiors can make bathrooms and hygienic areas real feature points. The high-gloss finish of the AQ1000-OP range gives any application a dazzling appearance.

There are three different colours in this range including Aqua and Brushed Steel. For a bathroom, these strong colours can brighten up the interior and improve overall aesthetics while saving time and money on upkeep and installation.
