Welcometo the forum, HM.

You deserve your own thread so I'll move this out onto it's own. Give a holler on what you'd like the title to be and any mod who sees this will change it.

Cultured marble walls? They are very typically held on the walls by beads of construction adhesive or silicone. Carefully slit the perimeter of each panel where it's caulked to the wall or adjoining cultured marble. Then position a flat prybar between the panel and the drywall/cement board substrate and start working it loose. It's important to be inline with a wall stud or the prybar is likely to punch a hole before you pry much. Be patient. Take your time and pry from a few locations before prying too hard and you're likely to remove the panel in much bigger sections at a time. Wear long sleeves, gloves, safety glasses, and all the other precautions.

Everything Tool Guy said! Be especially careful if/when it cracks or breaks. The edges will be VERY sharp.
