When it comes to choosing a shower enclosure for your bathroom remodel, you have an abundance of options such as glass and tile. Another one of these enclosure options are acrylic showers. While acrylic showers can be a good choice for your bathroom, it’s best that you know its advantages and disadvantages in order to make an informed decision.
In this post, South Shore Dream Bath, one of America’s leading bathtub remodeling companies, discuss the pros and cons of acrylic showers.
One of the advantages that you can get from an acrylic shower enclosure is its durability. Compared to other enclosures such as fiberglass, they are very resistant to cracks and dents as well as mold and mildew growth.
Con: Limited Style and Appeal
On the other hand, one of the cons of having an acrylic shower enclosure is its limitations when it comes to style and appeal. Once installed, it can be difficult to modify an acrylic enclosure to look for what you want and some may not even find it appealing at all.
Pro: Less Costly Option
Compared to other shower enclosures available, acrylic showers are the best choice when it comes to cost. It’s surprisingly affordable to obtain, install and maintain, making it a good option if you want to keep your bathroom remodeling budget low. To install an acrylic shower enclosure in your home, simply turn to South Shore Dream Bath LLC, one of the leading contractors for bathroom remodel in the country.
Con: Requires Professional Installation
For DIYers who want an acrylic shower enclosure, they might be out of luck as professional installation is often required for its installation. This means you’ll have to pay a little extra to have an acrylic shower enclosure. However, any installation mistakes that can lead to bigger problems in the future can be avoided with professional installation.
Pro: Ease of Installation
Compared to other enclosure types, acrylic showers are easier to install. This means, you can upgrade your shower during your bathroom remodel project without consuming the amount of time a tile installation will often require.
Con: May Affect Resale Value
On the other hand, since its style and appeal are quite limited, it might affect your home’s resale value if you ever plan on selling in the future. This is because some potential buyers might be put off by it and may not find it as attractive as they would a tile enclosure.
