shower wall back splashes help

Hello,

I am moving to Lindsay at the end of the month. I was lucky enough to get a 1 bedroom cottage style apartment. It is old and outdated, which is ok, it's still nice. It was built in 1970, so you can get the picture of what it might look like *lol*.

My only issue that I have with it, is the shower. It reminds me of camping..but clean.

I was wondering, you know the wall back splashes that people put up in their kittens usually, and they can peel off. Does anyone know if they can get this for putting in a shower?

Thanks,

ACO22

You can buy tub or shower surrounds at most home improvement stores. They don`t peel off, but you glue them on to the wall- I think that is what you want anyway.

just remember to use mold/mildew proof silicone on all the joints.

I want to surround the inside of the shower. The shower is built into the wall. Thanks guys, I will look around.

I did that at my house years ago. The one I have is vinyl, I guess, and you cut around the faucets and the shower head - then glue it to the wall.

here's some links I found:

Good luck with the project.

dmc123, thanks for the sites, however I am just looking for something that stick on and peel off, when I am done school.

Like these

http://www.homedepot.ca/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/CatalogSearchResultView?D=1&Ntk=level1&langId=-15&Dx=mode%20matchall&catNav=3&storeId=10051&Ntx=mode%20matchall&N=119902&catalogId=10051&Nty=1

But these are just for doing your kitchen wall behind the sink...not for the shower. I just maybe I could use something like this.

Also to see if anyone knew of any sites that offer more selection? I know some of the above looks bad, but it would be way better then what I have now *lol*
