When it comes to creating the perfect place for a relaxing bath or shower, your first thought may be the tub itself or even the shower fixture. But the truth is, one of the biggest building blocks for satisfaction is actually the tub wall surround.
Choosing a tub wall surround necessitates thinking about the following factors:
- How does it look? Obviously, you want something aesthetically pleasing since it’s quite literally going to be surrounding you!
- Is it easy to clean? If you’re like most folks, you don’t want to spend hours upon hours upon hours scrubbing away at your shower or tub with a toothbrush! Easy cleaning is key for bathroom satisfaction.
- Is it water-tight? Ensuring you have a water-tight, water-proof surface that prevents water from getting behind the walls is vital to preventing mold and mildew, which can cause major health problems if they get out of control.
- Does it fit within my budget? Budgets vary as widely as your options, and things like installation difficulty and time should be considered as well.
Our Favorite Choice for Tub Wall Surrounds: Acrylic!
One of the best options on the market today for variety, ease of maintenance, safety and budget-friendliness is acrylic tub wall surrounds. We’re seeing a lot of these go into bathroom remodels these days, and with good reason.
- Acrylic tub wall surrounds come in a wide variety of colors and patterns, including simulated stone and tile with patterns like subway title, smooth surface and beyond.
- Because there’s no grout, acrylic surrounds are easy to clean.
- Acrylic surrounds are 100 percent waterproof, so you don’t have to worry about moisture seeping behind the walls and creating a breeding ground for mold and mildew.
- Acrylic surrounds are budget-friendly thanks to single-day installation in most cases and beautiful simulated colors and patterns at much friendlier prices.
If you want the look of a high-end bathroom remodel but on a tighter budget, then acrylic tub wall surrounds are exactly the solution you’re looking for.
