Additional Images Featuring Light Gray 4×8 Subway Cultured Marble Shower Wall Panels
The 1/4″ thick cultured marble panels look and feel to the touch like a stone or marble, unlike Acrylic or PVC flexible shower wall liners that feel like plastic. The panels are non-porous, stain-resistant, and has an easy to clean surface. This unique 8-piece shower wall panel kit makes the installation process easy and offers multiple unique assembling options and accessory placement variations. The timeless 4”x8” subway light gray gloss pattern looks like a real tile without actual grout lines and does not require the maintenance of regular tile grout lines. Each panel is handled as a large tile and can be finished with a matching color silicone-based caulking between the panels, and in the corners and edges. Once the shower subway pattern surround is assembled, it has only one connecting horizontal grout line vs multiple grout lines in regular tiled walls. The panel edges and back wall panels are nicely finished with a vertical 2” matching color and a finished trim. Lastly, the panels are caulked to complete the seal and produce an elegant finish.
Package/option #3 additionally includes two (2) 7” corner shelves and one (1) 15” soap ledge. These shelves can be repositioned/glued to the wall based on the customer’s reach or needs. A decorative mosaic tile can be added in between panels to increase the size of the wall and/or to add an accent to the wall design. This shower kit is also great for DIY (do it yourself projects). Ella’s Bubbles offers package options which can be selected in dropdown above.
The back wall of the 8-panel shower consists of two (2) 30”x60” panels stacked on top of two (2) 30”x30” shorter panels creating a 60” x 90” wall. If the 2” trim is placed in the middle, it will add a 2” width to extend to 62” wide and 90” high on the back wall. All panel edges are factory finished, and joints are treated as regular tiles. These panels are then finished with grout. The back-wall or side-wall panels must be cut on corner sides to fit into the opening. Panels are easily cut with a masonry or diamond circular saw. The side walls are installed over the back-wall panel covering the cut edges and are finished with a color matched 100% silicone-based caulking. The side walls consist of two (2) 36” wide and 30” high panels installed on the bottom and two (2) 36” wide and 60” high panels stacked on top of each side. The 36” wide side panels are cut to fit over any shower base or bathtub size from 30” to 36” wide. If the 36” shower base or bathtub is selected, the edges of 36” side panels and base or bathtub must be covered with 2”x3/4” trims. Package 3 or 4 must be selected (trims included with these 2 packages). The 2” trim will nicely cover the edges of the 36” side panel, shower base, or bathtub. The edges of the 36” wide side panels are ¼” thick and factory finished. They can be finished with caulking and paint if a tub or shower base smaller than 36” is selected. If a smaller base was selected, the 2” trim are not needed or desired from a standpoint of design. In this case, the 36” wide side panel will overlap the shower base or bathtub. Please see manuals and consult with a professional contractor to assure the correct selection is chose. In addition, consider watching our installation videos found on our YouTube channel. Panels can be glued over drywall, plaster, painted walls, plywood, Durock, and even existing tiles with 100% silicone. Please follow installations manuals found in the “Downloads” section.

Additional Installations Tips:
The height or width of shower walls can be increased by purchasing extra wall panels or adding decorative separating mosaic or other material tile strips in between. For example, additional mosaic or other decorative tiles can be purchased by the owner and installed between the 30”x30” and 36”x60” wall panels to add an accent and to increase the height of the shower if needed. If you add a 6” wide mosaic strip to our 30” and 60” tall panels that will create total of 96” = 8 feet standard height. If you need to create a 10’ tall wall, the additional panels can be purchased. Extra shower panels or cultured marble accessories can be found on our Accessories page.
Decorative Tile Strip Installation Ideas
Please see the below installation ideas for adding decorative or mosaic tile (marked A in drawings). Decorative tiles (not included) can be purchased by the customer and installed in between shower wall panels as a decorative accent strip or if the joint lines of panels do not meet customer’s expectations. The wall panels do not have rounded off edges, so it is suggested to add mosaic or decorative tile strip (optional). By adding decorative tile between the panels can also be used to increase the size of the walls. For example, 6” mosaic tiles can be added between the 30” and 60” panels to achieve an 8’ high shower wall. The ¾” thick 2” trim also can be used as a separation piece between 2 panels and can be purchased as extra parts found in Cultured Marble Shower Accessories.
