In this regard, are shower wall panels better than tiles?

Like tiles, wall panels offer impressive water resistance. Unlike tiles, they don't have grouting, so they're 100% waterproof as well as being easier to clean and maintain. Wall panels can be installed over existing tiles and are easily cut to size to fit any bathroom perfectly.

Do bathroom walls need tile?

Meanwhile, walls without tiles are painted. Naturally, fewer tiles are needed here unlike in the floor-to-ceiling tile bathroom design. However, you may need to spend on skirting boards to cover wall-floor joints in areas which aren't tiled. Skimming may be necessary before painting the walls, too.
