The Sentrel difference.

Bettering the Bathroom Space

Do you want a bathroom makeover but fear the high costs?

Sentrel's wall paneling may not be the answer for a whole-room remodel, but it can add sophistication and customization to the bathroom space. Essentially a printed paneling product, Sentrel's composite panels utilize high-resolution imagery sandwiched between a PVC backer-board and a polyester top cap.

Installation requires a jig saw, miter saw for miter cuts, a plane, and an assortment of hand tools and adhesives. The material can be installed over existing tile and the company claims the product is resistant to mold and mildew and is easy to clean.

Cost can range anywhere between $5.50 - 11.00 per square foot.

I'm intrigued by the Sentrel product, but I'm not yet sold. I'd have to see the finished article in real life--actually get my hands on it--before I can be convinced of its durability and installed integrity. I have this image of the panels falling from the wall after weeks of showering...

What are your thoughts on Sentrel? Would you use it to spruce up your bathroom space?

Excellent info on bathroom makeovers. Another thing that you can do that's really helpful is to refinish your vanities. My wife and I own a faux finish and cabinet refinishing company in the Nashville, Tennessee area.

Sentrel Systems

These systems are supurb... We held a piece of real granite up to it and couldn't tell the difference. When they are installed properly the panels are solid and look amazing. Really nice system.

As a bathroom remodeler I have had experience with this product and have received great results.

My clients have loved the way that their showers and baths turn out after the projects are finished.

Great usage of Sentrel

10/07/2010 02:55 PM twinkletoes3000

The Sentrel looks nice, but I really like the usage of granite to bring out a more classic, yet natural feel. It adds the feel that Sentrel is really going for. Granite is definitely the premier countertop surface these days. Lowes has some great granite vanity tops made by a company called Jackson Stoneworks.
