Utile: The Evolution of Tile
Utile is a shower wall solution that combines sophisticated style with easy installation. The panels have an ingenious polymer surface with an appearance and texture that look like natural stone and ceramic tile. Utile’s durable, elegant look is the perfect way to revitalize any bathroom decor and requires little maintenance.

The Utile system is faster to install than ceramic tiles thanks to a mistake-proof “Ulok” system, making it easier to perfectly align the walls—just slip them together and lock them into place.

With direct-to-stud installation, Utile is also grout-free, eliminating messy grout installation, maintenance and periodic repair, and reducing the risk of leaks. Covered by a 10-year warranty, Utile includes a vast range of patterns in the following series: Metro, Origin, Stone, Organik, Factory, Marble, Wallpaper, Smooth, and Erosion.
