Out of all of the shower materials on the market, acrylic is by far the easiest to clean! But what makes this material low maintenance? And are all acrylic shower systems created equal? In this article, we’re taking a closer look at this mystery material so that you can make a confident shower replacement decision come remodeling day.
Acrylic is an exceptional material choice for showers and bathtubs because it’s nonporous. Simply put, a nonporous material is one that cannot absorb liquid or gas thanks to its solid construction. This is useful in the bathroom for many reasons, particularly because it can impede mold and mildew growth—which happens when water and humidity are trapped on a surface. What does this mean for you? You won’t have to spend hours in the bathroom scrubbing away stains and bacteria growth when you install a shower system that features nonporous acrylic wall surrounds.
Qualities to Look For
Of course, not all acrylic shower systems offer notable benefits. For a low-maintenance acrylic shower, look for one that features:
- Seamless, nonporous acrylic walls – Without grout lines, you won’t have to worry about trapped moisture and eventual staining.
- An antimicrobial surface layer – Thanks to embedded silver ions, antimicrobial surfaces can further protect against bacteria growth.
- Customization options – Investing in a shower system that’s custom-fitted to your bathroom’s exact dimensions will ensure a tight fit that prevents leaks.
