If you’re planning to remodel your bathroom, then there are many important decisions that you need to make. One of these decisions will be what material to use for your shower wall. These days, homeowners are spoiled when it comes to choosing bathroom materials and finishes. To help you narrow down your search, the shower and tub replacement experts over at South Shore Dream Bath share the pros and cons of three popular shower wall materials in today’s article.
Ceramic tiles are one of the most popular material choices. They come in a wide variety of styles, shapes, colors and sizes. They are relatively inexpensive and easy to install. However, they are also prone to mold buildup and are not as durable as other shower wall options.
Another economical option that is a favorite among shower replacement contractors, acrylic is highly functional, easy to maintain and a breeze to install. It does a fairly good job of imitating more expensive materials like stone and brick. The downside is that it lacks durability and if a portion of it gets damaged, you will need to replace the whole thing.
If you are looking to invest in a premium material that evokes luxury and style, then stone tiles are a great choice for you. The only real downside to this material is its price point.
Another premium option, glass tiles are among the best materials you can buy for your shower. When it comes to durability and style, few materials can do better. However, since they need to be precisely cut, installation can be a lengthy and costly prospect.
