I'm (slowly) remodelling a bathroom, and have a shower-stall kit that includes thin plastic sheets to glue to the walls. I'm debating if I want to tear out what I have now and replace it with cement board and fully tile it.
I was thinking that rolled vinyl flooring has come a long way recently, and maybe I could put that up on the walls? I'm thinking a non-water based contact adhesive like from DAP would give good hold.
Is this a spectacularly bad idea? Would I need to seal or treat it for this use? Are there any companies that make a product intended for what I'm planning to do? (a lighter-weight product that doesn't need to have the wearability of something you'd be walking on; there seem to be plenty of 'direct to stud' type shower walls available, but those are only available in a limited number of sizes and significantly more expensive)
