One of the most remodeled rooms in the home today is the bathroom. Whether you’re remodeling the bath or in a new construction project there will come a time to decide the type of bathroom fixtures to be used. The bathtubs and showers being used are an important part of any bathroom project. One of the biggest advancements in bathroom fixtures is the use of acrylic to manufacture a large variety of bathtubs and showers to choose from. There are several great reasons why acrylic fixtures are a great choice for any bathroom project.
One of the greatest advantages of acrylic its weight. The lightweight construction consists of laminating several sheets of acrylic together. Not only is this method strong but the weight allows for the development of larger tubs and showers. This is also a great choice for bathrooms that are located on higher levels such as the second or third floor of a building or a home. Acrylic tubs and showers hold the water temperature longer than a cast iron or metal fixture. This constant temperature keeps the occupant comfortable longer while also helping to save energy by using less hot water.
Color choice is also another great reason why acrylic is a good option. Acrylic fixtures are available in a wide variety of colors to match any décor. The color also goes completely through the product. Chips in the acrylic are hardly visible. At times when harsh cleaners are used there is a tendency for scratches to develop on the surface of the fixture. These scratches are also not as visible in acrylic. With the correct cleaner acrylic will hold a nice finish for years to come. The color will not fade as with other types of tub and shower materials.
With the proper installation, acrylic showers and bathtubs will last for a lifetime. As with any type of contract work it is better left to the professional. Some manufacturers’ warranties are void if the installation is not performed by a professional. For the next new or bathroom remodeling project in your home look for acrylic to be one of the options. Acrylic is a great addition to any bathroom.
