We simply adore the modern appeal of this bathroom, with its wooden cladding ideas it can instantly have a contemporary feel that is texture and eye-catching. The entire room is decorated in a slate grey colour, with incredible attention to detail. 

2. Stone splendour

Cladding for bathrooms has changed dramatically in recent years. Bathroom wall cladding ideas include using stone-like textures to enhance a space, opt for this neutral colour and see how well it goes with a darker wooden vanity unit.

3. Modern and natural

Bathroom panel ideas include the modern, sleek and natural look of wood. In this image we see wooden cladding ideas and how it can decorate a whole bathroom, from the walls to the floor and even the counters. It has a warm design that looks like wood, but is in fact entirely cladding.

This minimalist bathroom design with an eclectic charm has genuine wood cladding on the walls. Here we see fused glass fish adding brilliance to a seemingly boring bathroom. The sea-side inspiration is one if those awesome bathroom cladding ideas that are perfect for an eclectic yet modern home. 

5. Scandinavian

This Scandinavian design is yet another one of those wooden cladding ideas to pay attention to. It feels like and looks a bit like a sauna, but the cladding creates an illusion that the ceiling and windows are located higher than they actually are. 

6. Beach hut
