Using Acrylics in Your Bathroom Design

November 8, 2018

Traditional bathroom remodeling projects are centered around tile, grout, and a lot of patience. Though tile once reigned supreme, acrylic systems are coming along in terms of popularity. For your next bathroom renovation, incorporating acrylic into your plans might not be such a bad idea when you consider what acrylic can do. Let’s take a look.

A design plan for a bathroom

Water Damage? Where?

Though most people aren’t thinking about it during installation, a poorly executed bathroom renovation can lead to major water damage down the line. Though tile can be attractive to look at, it’s not a “forever product” and will inevitably leak. These leaks will almost certainly lead to costly damages at some point, even if it isn’t today or tomorrow. Though it may not be today or tomorrow, the water damage is inevitable.

However, when you use a solid shower surround made of acrylic, the waterproof seal is much stronger. There is very little possibility of developing serious water damage down the line, which is worth its weight in gold whether you plan to live in your home indefinitely or you want to sell. Potential buyers are not going to want to invest in a house that might be full of mold.

Enjoy the Warmth of Acrylic

Whether the AC is blasting or the weather outside is frightful, bathrooms can be uncomfortably cold. Tile, stone, and other materials can be quite a shock to step onto first thing in the morning, but acrylic does a much better job of staying comfortable and warm.

Keeping It Clean is Simple

Though tile can certainly offer an attractive, luxurious option for your bathroom remodeling project, maintaining it can be something of a drag. The grout between tiles can trap dirt and lead to the growth of mold over time. Not only that, but tile can accumulate layers of soapy film over time. This is known casually as “soap scum.”

Acrylic, solid shower surrounds offer a simple clean-up. All you need is a gentle cleaning agent and a soft cloth. The important thing to note here is that you don’t damage the acrylic with abrasive cleansers or scratchy scouring pads. Be kind to your acrylic and it will return the favor with years of looking great.
