Tile vs. Acrylic Wall Surrounds: Which is Right for You?

Jun 30, 2021

A walk-in shower with beige patterned walls in a luxurious bathroom with a windowWhen it’s time to embark on a bathroom remodeling journey, there are many decisions you’ll need to make along the way. One that can’t be forgotten is whether to choose a tile or acrylic wall surround for your new shower. Good news—Jacuzzi® Bath Remodel is here to help!

While you may already be familiar with traditional tile shower wall surrounds, acrylic is a newer material that has received a lot of buzz in recent times. So, when it comes to tile vs. acrylic, which is right for you? Read on to learn about both types and how you can make the best decision for your own bathroom remodel.

Tile Wall Surrounds

Tile shower wall surrounds are a classic, and they may be what you picture in your head when you first imagine a typical bathtub or shower. But because this material requires each individual tile to be laid and set with grout, it’s not the most time-saving to have installed. Due to the nature of the grout lines, it can also be more difficult to keep clean. Dirt, grime, and even bacteria and mold can often make the space between tiles their home, meaning you’ll have to put in more effort—and likely use harsh chemicals—to remove them and keep your shower sparkling clean.

Aesthetically, tile can be pleasing to the eye if kept in good shape. While white tile is the most traditional, you can also choose a different color or texture depending on your budget and the bathroom remodeling contractor you select.

Acrylic Wall Surrounds

In contrast to tile showers that require each piece to be set individually, acrylic showers are typically installed in one piece that is created to fit the exact dimensions of the space. This makes them particularly cost-effective and an exceptional time-saver in terms of installation. In fact, Jacuzzi® Bath Remodel can install a new acrylic shower in as little as one day!

The benefits of acrylic wall surrounds don’t end there, though. When you get yours from Jacuzzi® Bath Remodel, it will also be:

  • Constructed from premium nonporous acrylic, making it exceptionally durable
  • Custom trimmed to fit the exact dimensions of your shower
  • Impact, scratch, and UV-resistant as it is built with a high-density PVC core and two layers of aluminum backing
  • Resistant to bacteria thanks to an antimicrobial surface layer embedded with silver ions
  • Available in an array of attractive colors and textures for a unique look

The Shower Remodel Company to Trust

Overall, while both tile and acrylic wall surrounds serve the same purpose, acrylic simply outperforms tile. To get the maximum benefits out of your acrylic shower remodel, however, you’ll need to partner with the right company—and there’s simply no better one out there than Jacuzzi® Bath Remodel. Our acrylic wall surrounds are designed to make your life easier, so you can spend less time scrubbing stubborn grout and grime and more time enjoying your luxurious new shower. Plus, all Jacuzzi® Bath Remodel products are fully customizable, so you can get the best of both worlds in terms of style and functionality.

At Jacuzzi® Bath Remodel, we stand behind our craftsmanship and quality wholeheartedly, which is why we protect our acrylic wall surrounds and all other products with a limited lifetime warranty against defects in material and workmanship.
