The Pros and Cons of Acrylic Sinks

August 30, 2018

Acrylic is a fantastic little material you can use for your sink either in the bathroom or the kitchen. However, like all materials, it has its pros and cons.

Today we’re going to be examining some of those elements so you can decide whether or not acrylic is the right material for your next bathroom remodeling project.

The Pros and Cons of Acrylic Sinks

What Makes Acrylic a Great Sink Material?

Acrylic is a type of durable plastic used in many facets of bathroom and kitchen design. For sinks, it is a highly versatile material with tons of shapes and colors to choose from. That means you can order a single or double basin sink to fit your aesthetic rather than having to conform to the ideas of another.

In addition, acrylic is easy to clean. All you need to do is give the sink a wipe-down with a cloth or sponge and a gentle cleanser. The key is to use non-abrasive materials, but we’ll talk more about that in a moment. Acrylic can also be repaired in the event of scratching so you can keep your sink looking gorgeous for years to come!

What May Cause Trouble for Your Sink?

Though few, there are some notable problems with using acrylic for your sink. For example, abrasive materials or cleaners can damage the sink. For those of you who like to paint, be aware acrylic can be damaged by petroleum-based products like oil paints.

Furthermore, acrylic can be damaged by extreme heat caused by a curling iron left sitting or by placing a hot pan on the surface.
