What Is the Most Low-Maintenance Shower Material?

Jul 07, 2021

A spacious, modern bathroom with soaking tub and walk-in shower.

Humans have been coming up with creative ways to keep clean for thousands of years, including all manner of baths and showers. Over the course of history, there have likely been dozens of materials considered for showers, which might make it seem impossible to figure out which one is best. But when it comes to the most low-maintenance shower material, there is a clear winner: acrylic. It might not have hundreds of years of history like porcelain or tile, but its modern features make it a clear favorite for homeowners. How can we be so confident in this answer? Let’s explore some of the things about acrylic that make it superior to other shower materials, and why it’s the material used to craft best-in-class Jacuzzi® shower systems. Acrylic offers:

Impact Resistance

How many times have you dropped a brand-new bar of soap or a giant shampoo bottle in your shower? Have you ever dropped a metal-handled razor while attempting to hang it up? Events like these might seem innocuous at first glance, but when your shower floor is tile or natural stone, impacts from things commonly found in your shower might have disastrous results. Cracks and chips can appear almost instantly and will eventually become avenues for erosion and water damage.

Acrylic showers, on the other hand, can handle impacts from shampoo bottles and more without cracking or chipping. You won’t have to worry about expensive repair bills or plumbing problems caused by impacts when you choose acrylic for your shower. This general durability is part of what makes Jacuzzi® showers such an exceptional investment, as these acrylic shower systems maintain their like-new looks for years to come.

Mold & Mildew Defense

One of the least appealing chores on your list is scrubbing mold and mildew from your shower floor. The worst part about mold is that it can crop up again and again, even when you do your best to keep your shower clean. That’s because mold and mildew will cling to almost anything they can, including the tiny cracks and chips you might find in a tile or porcelain shower.

By contrast, acrylic showers feature a uniform surface that makes it difficult for mold and mildew to adhere. Even better, many acrylic showers—including Jacuzzi® showers—receive an additional antimicrobial treatment that inhibits the growth of mold and mildew throughout the product. That means even less work to keep your shower clean and pristine.

Seamless Construction

If your current shower has a tile wall or basin, you’re probably familiar with the bane of tidy homeowners everywhere: grimy grout. While the individual tiles of a shower will often remain relatively clean, the thin lines of grout between them are a haven for mold, mildew, and all manner of other unsightly microorganisms. Worst of all, the porous nature of grout isn’t just ideal for harboring mold and mildew—it also makes cleaning more difficult!

By contrast, acrylic showers are generally constructed seamlessly, so there are no gaps where grout is needed. Instead, acrylic showers and shower walls are custom-made to fit your shower perfectly and create a watertight seal.

Fast Installation

One factor that often turns homeowners off from any bathroom renovation projects is the time it takes to complete them. It isn’t hard to imagine why, especially considering the many interruptions to your home and daily routine that a lengthy installation or remodel would cause.

Because acrylic is crafted seamlessly, however, the right company can install an acrylic shower in significantly less time than it would take for a traditional shower replacement or bathroom remodel. This is especially true when you choose a company like Jacuzzi® Bath Remodel, as we can complete your Jacuzzi® shower installation in as little as one day.
