Solid surface material is ideal for tub, shower, and other wet walls. This is a standard tub surround using Corian Brand solid surface. The wall sheets go up to the ceiling and are trimmed outside and top with a molding similar to the wall sheets. There is wainscoting and chair rail made out of solid surface surrounding the room as well (visible here between the door and the tub surround).

A closer look into the tub area shows the clean join between the tub and the wall sheets. Mather installs these sheets with a "back bevel" behind the sheets to allow for more silicone protection with less of the sealant showing.

The other side of the tub shows a rigid glued outside corner, returning to the wall and blending into the wainscot and chair rail. A rigid glued seam shows a barely perceptible join where the Corian turns the corner.
