Why Do We Love Acrylic Shower Trays?

May 30, 2018

Bathrooms are one of the most important rooms in one’s home. After all, they’re one of the most frequently used rooms in the whole house. So it’s important they are not only comfortable, but they reflect who we are.

If you’re thinking of converting your bathtub into a shower area or simply considering the installation of a shower tray, you may want to think about acrylic shower trays. They are not only functional, but offer styles customization as well.

Today we’re going to be examining acrylic shower trays and why we think they’re a bathroom remodeling essential.

Acrylic Shower Trays Offer More Than You Might Think.

When it comes to preconceived notions, acrylic can suffer a little bit of prejudice. Many people think of acrylic as a cheap, unattractive material with little to offer in terms of design and aesthetic. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Sure, it may have started that way, but acrylic has changed a lot since it was first introduced.

In truth, you would be surprised what an acrylic shower tray can do for your bathroom in terms of elevating its style. With acrylic you can have an economic shower tray installation without sacrificing your vision for a beautiful shower base.

Just because a material is cost effective, doesn’t mean it is cheap-looking. In this case, it’s not too good to be true.

What Sets Acrylic Apart from Other Materials Like Stone?

An acrylic shower tray can offer you a lot in terms of utility as well as stylistic flair. For example, acrylic requires very little maintenance for the life of your shower. To clean it, all you need to do is wipe the dirt away with some cleaner and water.

Stone and tile shower bases can include a high number of grout lines which accumulate shower slime over time. An acrylic shower tray requires the least amount of grout lines which means it requires much less preventative maintenance.

Acrylic is warm and cozy. Another great element of acrylic is the fact that it retains heat very well. This can help to cut down on a freezing shower floor first thing in the morning. Besides, if the acrylic shower tray is a little chilled, you can expect it to heat quickly under the water.
