Designing a new shower can feel overwhelming. Do you go traditional or mix things up? Which materials clean easily and stay clean the longest? Which type of shower will offer the most value for what you’re spending? What is the best material for a new shower?
If your head started spinning, don’t worry. Answering these questions is actually simpler than you might think. Acrylic, often dismissed as a “budget option,” is actually the best material to combine beauty, cleanliness, and durability in a new shower. And, while a material with comparable features might come with an exorbitant price tag, acrylic showers go easier on your bank account.
When most people think of acrylic showers, they imagine the generic, monotone fixtures installed in dated hotels. In contrast, many residential acrylic showers come in a wide variety of styles. While you can choose walls in a variety of colors like pristine white or stately grey, you can also branch out with acrylic that emulates marble, travertine, or granite. You can also choose to texture your new shower walls to mimic fancy tile patterns, subway tiles, or natural stone tiles. The addition of an acrylic shower turns your bathroom into a luxurious space.
Tile, marble, and natural stone are beautiful materials, but are also difficult to maintain. The near-constant humidity present in your shower can lead to mold and mildew growth in tile grout and across stone surfaces. Marble requires special cleaning materials and techniques in order to preserve its glossy finish. Acrylic, on the other hand, naturally resists mold and mildew growth. Plus, the acrylic showers that Jacob Sunrooms, Exteriors & Baths installs are infused with anti-microbial technology that prevents bacterial buildup. This technology reduces the maintenance required on your new shower to a simple, occasional wipe-down.
Tile grout stains and decays over time, which changes the look of your entire bathing area. Stone tiles erode and deteriorate. Marble accumulates crusty, unattractive water marks. However, the highly resilient, non-porous composition of acrylic resists cracking or fading. When you build your new shower from the best acrylic material, you can enjoy beautiful luxury for years to come.
