Acrylic bathtubs date back to decades ago, and for many years now, they’ve been and they are still one of the most popular options for bathtubs on the market.
You simply can’t ignore their durability, versatility, heat retention, smoothness, and above all, the affordable price. Due to these reasons, acrylic bathtubs are people’s favorite options on the market, while they’re also comfortable, and they require very low-maintenance.
Other than that, they are warm and lightweight. To be more specific, these kinds of tubs are made of vacuum-formed sheets of acrylic, while they’re followed with reinforced fiberglass which adds extra points to the durability of the tub.
Considering the fact that the material is soft and supple, they can be installed on any level of your home, but what I really like the most about these tubs is that they’re damage-resistant, repairable, and very easy to maintain.
The best acrylic bathtubs mimic the design of a cast iron tub, but you can’t quite compare them in terms of construction since iron tubs have the advantage of authenticity, timelessness, and richness.
On the other hand, acrylic tubs are very easy to clean, which means you won’t have to do any abrasive cleaning, but there’s a downside to acrylic tubs, they are pretty easy prone to scratches, and they are also less susceptible to chipping, and what’s good is that cracks can be easily repaired, so you can assure yourself a long-lasting product.
An added advantage of acrylic bathtubs as we mentioned, in the beginning, is their affordability, while they don’t sacrifice quality for it, which is great for the majority of the population and households because not everyone can afford an expensive tub.
However, take in mind that there are quite some brands out there, and it may be frustrating to decide on a product and to choose the one that meets your requirements the most. There are also a couple of things you should consider before purchasing an acrylic bathtub, such as size, you have to consult with your design to see if the tub you’re buying fits in your bathroom.
Some of the best brands out there are Bain Ultra, Hydro Systems, Maax, MTI. So, whenever you see tubs from this brand, you should know that they provide great value for money and they have a reputation with providing people with quality products.
All and all, I really think an acrylic bathtub is worth it, and if you want to assure yourself a quality bathtub which will provide you with exceptional comfort, and a quality shower, then an acrylic bathtub would be ideal for you.
