Bathrooms are one of the most used rooms in your home. Beyond just using the restroom or washing your hands, there are many ways to enjoy the bathroom too--from freshening up, taking a hot shower, or taking a long, relaxing bubble bath—there are many ways to utilize and enjoy the bathroom in your home.
As much as we use our bathrooms throughout the day (and night), bathrooms are also one of the first rooms in the home that can begin to deteriorate without constant and diligent maintenance. This is especially true the older your bathroom is, as today’s newest bathroom materials are engineered to last longer without the need for constant maintenance and cleaning. This means that renovating your bathroom and shower area can be the ideal home improvement project, as the condition of your bathroom can not only affect the value of your entire home but give off a first impression to guests as well.
Renovating an old bathroom can be done in many different ways, but upgrading your shower is usually the most impactful. Today, we are going to look at the four most popular shower wall options and how Dream Baths by Bee can help get them installed in your home’s bathroom.
Acrylic & Fiberglass
For those who are on a budget or want the easiest shower wall option, acrylic or fiberglass walls are the way to go. Acrylic and fiberglass materials are the most widely used shower wall materials in new home constructions as they’re low-maintenance, affordable, and extremely durable.
Made with high-quality materials engineered to resist mold and mildew, these products are very easy to clean—and you don’t have to worry about cleaning or repairing grout. This material comes in a pre-fabricated sheet that fits easily over your current shower walls and adheres to the wall with heavy-duty construction adhesive for a quick and easy install.
Ceramic & Porcelain Tiles
If you are wanting more of an upscale look that will impress your guests and increase the value of your home, you can choose classic, traditional ceramic and porcelain tiles. These tiles are becoming more and more common in newer high-end home construction and are a common upgrade for those wanting something a little nicer than acrylic or fiberglass. This material is going to run a little more expensive due to the cost of materials and installation process. These are great additions to any shower surround install.
Similar to ceramic and porcelain tiles, stone tiles are a great way to add some character to your bathroom. While ceramic and porcelain tiles are smooth and more uniform, stone tiles have a more natural stone look which adds texture and character to your bathroom. Stone tiles are going to be more expensive than ceramic due to a lengthy manufacturing process, but the results are well worth the money.
The last type of shower wall material on our list are glass tiles. Glass tiles are usually the most expensive option but they provide some great benefits. These tiles are a great way to give your shower a larger look due to the light reflecting capabilities of glass. Installation is more difficult since the glass tiles are fragile, but a professional shower renovation company can easily complete the job for you.
