When it comes to your bathtub, choosing the correct material is important. Most bathtubs nowadays are either acrylic or fiberglass, but you might still see a porcelain option here and there. At AZ BathMasters, we’ve been in the bathroom remodeling game for over thirty years and, in our humble opinion, acrylic is our top bathtub choice.
Benefits of an Acrylic Bathtub
Your bathroom is one of the most used areas of a home, so having a solid bathtub is essential. Acrylic tubs offer a variety of great benefits and are also a fantastic investment for a new home build or remodel.
1. Strong, but also lightweight. Acrylic is a strong material, but it is surprisingly light. This means an acrylic tub can easily be installed on any floor of a house without needing to worry about additional supports.
2. Resistant to everyday wear and tear. Acrylic is an extremely durable material, and tubs made out of acrylic do not chip, scratch, or crack easily. Acrylic tubs are also resistant to staining and fading due to direct sunlight. This makes maintenance simple as well. A quality-made and professionally-installed acrylic tub can last 10-15 years when maintained correctly, so it’s a solid investment.
3. Easy to clean. Acrylic tubs are also made from material that is inherently antimicrobial. This is huge when it comes to bathroom spaces that are wet and damp day in and day out. Having an antimicrobial tub will drastically reduce the risk of mold and mildew buildup. Acrylic tubs are also smooth and non-porous which also helps eliminate mold and mildew. They are easily cleaned with spray-on bath and/or shower cleaning solutions and a simple sponge or wipe should do the trick.
4. Comfortable, but also versatile. Acrylic tubs provide a smooth surface and are comfortable to touch, sit in, and lean back on. In addition, because of the material used, they are extremely versatile and customizable tubs. Acrylic tubs can come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors, so they really can complement any bathroom space and greater design.
