Acrylic Provides the Look of Stone, at a Fraction of the Cost
March 30, 2018
Acrylic is a material increasing in popularity in recent years, but is still relatively unknown outside of the industry. You might be asking yourself, what is acrylic? How does it work? Why is it more affordable than traditional materials? We’re going to answer all those questions and more, all you have to do is read on!
What is Acrylic?
Acrylic is a form of plastic, that is molded into a sheet that will fit your shower or bath. It has become a favorite among those looking for a modern design with low maintenance requirements.
How Does Acrylic Work?
As previously stated, acrylic comes in sheets. If you decide you’d like acrylic for your bathroom, a design consultant will come and visit your bathroom, take measurements, and fabricate a sheet of acrylic specifically fitted for you.
Why is it More Affordable than Traditional Materials?
Most of the affordability comes from its ease of installation. Installing traditional materials such as stone or tile can be very time consuming. Acrylic is relatively easy to install compared to other materials, and does not take much time at all, reducing its cost. These time savings aspects aside, the material itself is also more affordable than other materials.
Get a Stone Bathroom Without the Stone Cost
One of the biggest reasons acrylic is so popular has to do with both its look and affordability. Installing a stone tub or shower is expensive, as is replacing them. But with acrylic, you can get the look of stone at a fraction of the cost. Acrylic can offer the look and feel of natural stone materials. It can also be used to mask over an existing tub or shower, removing the need to install a completely new one.
Why Hire an Expert?
If you’re looking to install an acrylic tub or shower, or anything in your bathroom for that matter, it is important to hire a professional. There’s a lot of jobs you can DIY in your home, but ones in the bathroom are best left to the pros. One small mistake can lead to years of water damage, costing you way more in the long run.
