Your home is your castle, and what homeowner doesn’t want to hear the words “you have a lovely house”? If you are considering an upgrade, what better place to begin than your bathroom? Not only will you be able to create a beautiful space, but you will also be adding additional value to your home. An attractive bathroom is not just about appearance. It’s also about functionality and durability. Deciding on the materials, and the products you select for your shower wall, significantly impacts your whole bathroom’s look and feel. It also makes a difference in how comfortable and relaxing your bath and shower will be. Several materials are available for your consideration, including fiberglass and acrylic, ceramic & porcelain tile, glass, and stone. Your Straight Up Remodeling expert will guide you on the best option for your home.
Fiberglass or Acrylic Shower Walls
Fiberglass and acrylic shower units and stalls are considered one of the most economical ways to upgrade your shower wall. Built-in a factory using a mold, they typically arrive in one or more pieces. Multi-part shower kits consist of several components that fit together seamlessly to create a smooth surface that is also watertight. Multi-part shower kits include a shower or bathtub, walls, and depending on the design, floors. Fiberglass and acrylic provide a modern look and can be found in several decorator colors.
Ceramic & Porcelain Tiles for Shower
If your goal is to create a unique space that is well suited to your style, ceramic and porcelain tiles are a great option. Tiles are available in several sizes, textures, and colors and can be mixed and matched for a customized one-of-a-kind appearance. If you are in the market for something simple, you can opt to tile your shower with a single shape and color. Tile is the perfect addition to both traditional and modern décor. Porcelain tile is well known for its dense durability and water-resistant properties.
Glass Tile in Shower
Glass tiles have several advantages, including their ability to reflect light, making the space appear much larger. Glass tiles are available in a wide range of colors. They are the perfect accompaniment for a small shower. Glass tiles are also translucent, adding beauty and depth to the color. Glass tiles can be used as an accent with ceramic and porcelain tiles, and they are effortless to clean.
Stone Tiles for Shower Walls
There is nothing like the appearance of natural stone to bring a look of luxuriousness to your bathroom. Depending on the type of stone you select, these tiles can work seamlessly with various decorator styles, including contemporary, modern and rustic. Because stone is a natural product, every piece is unique with subtle variations in color, texture, and patterns. Stone tile is available in matte or gloss, and you can select a smoother finish for a sleek look or textured stone to add visual interest. Natural stone tile also pairs well with brass fixtures. Marble, slate, travertine, onyx, and granite are all great options, depending on your budget.
