Wallboards are easy to make and provides soft and easy to paint surface. Following are some useful particulars regarding drywall and backer board.

Dry walling your bathroom is a good design to have the perfect water resistant finish.

Green board is slightly on the costlier side but better than any other waterproof finish.

It's ideal for wet areas like whirlpool decks, shower walls and bathtub surrounds. Backer board is generally tough to cut than wallboard. Use a straightedge guide and score a line a few times using a carbide-blade cutter or a short-bladed utility knife. Crack the board along the score line and cut any remaining mesh. If the backer board doesn't quite meet flush with a drywall surface, fur out behind the backer board with felt strips, or for wider gaps use wood furring strips.
