What Makes Acrylic Perfect for Winter?

December 3, 2018

It’s first thing in the morning and it’s time to shower, but the threat of the cold tile flooring is making you drag your feet. The icy chill of the bathroom can make winter showers uncomfortable, but it doesn’t have to be this way.

Remodeling your bathroom with acrylic is a great way to keep your bathroom cozy and warm all year long.

Is Acrylic Actually Warm?

Though the material itself may not radiate heat, it has amazing properties of heat-retention. That means that the heat you pour into your bathroom will actually stick to your tub and shower as long as they are made of acrylic. If you enjoy taking long, hot baths, then you may also enjoy the extra time that efficient heat-retentive acrylic can provide.

This heat-retention will work not only with your heat, but with the hot water you run while you shower. It is sure to make your morning just a little more pleasant.

Take Your Bathroom Warmth to the Next Level

Though your acrylic bathtub and/or shower may have excellent heat-retention, your tile flooring may still make your morning shower a miserable experience. To ensure that your comfort is never compromised, try out the following tips.

  • The Sun’s Warmth is Here for You: If you’re lucky enough to have a window in your bathroom, let the light of the morning sun stream in for added warmth. This may not work if you take showers before the sun comes up, but if you wait until later in the day, you can still take advantage of a few rays.
  • Keep Your Outfit Close at Hand: Rather than dressing in your bedroom, bring your outfit for the day into the bathroom with you. The steam from your bath will help keep your clothing warm and it might get rid of a few wrinkles as well.
  • Make Sure It’s Efficient: Sometimes a draft can creep in through your window, undermining your warming efforts. Make sure your bathroom is properly insulated and that no precious warmth is escaping.
  • Invest in the Accessories You Need: Layers of rugs, a free-standing heated towel rack, and other items can help bolster the efforts of your heating system.
