What Is an Acrylic Shower?
Once upon a time, a shower was built right into the wall of a home, from brick, tile, porcelain, and other heavy materials, as the home was being built. And, while some homes may still feature such relics, most new showers are made from acrylic or another similar material. Modern showers are manufactured as stalls, and because acrylic is such a pliable material, these stalls come in all shapes, sizes, and colors, with different patterned finishes and features like seats, shelves, and caddies built right into the walls. Acrylic is much lighter than heavy materials like porcelain and tile, making it easier to manufacture, transport, install, and replace.
Acrylic is also a non-porous material, making it ideal for shower construction as it won’t absorb water. And, most acrylic showers manufactured today are infused with an antimicrobial agent that resists the growth of bacteria like mold and mildew so your bathing area stays fresh and clean with minimal maintenance. Acrylic resists chipping, cracking, and staining, which also makes it a popular option for showers these days, as an acrylic shower will retain its like-new appearance for many years.
