Many people in the Pittsburgh Area thinking about remodeling their bath or shower don’t know about the numerous material options available for the walls that surround your bath or shower. To save people time and research, here are the most common options out there and what Mt. Pleasant Window & Remodeling Co. recommends:
Glass tiles are pretty simple to describe. These titles can give additional shininess to your bath or shower area. Unlike most tiles, they come in smaller tiles that when added together create a pattern. They break very easily and cost $$$.
Pros: Nice to Look At, Shiny, Unique
Cons: Expensive, Brittle, Easily Damaged
Stone tiles look like natural marbling, very similar to granite. They also need to be installed one-by-one in your wall, a very time consuming process that will drive up your bath or shower cost.
Pros: Strong, Natural Texture
Cons: Expensive, Easily Stained, Hard to Clean, Too Long to Install
Ceramic tiles are larger than glass or stone ones, making your bath or shower wall look different.. Ceramic is basically like porcelain, which is what your toilet is made out of.
Cons: Out of Style, Complex/Involved Installation, Looks Cheesy
Acrylic material is custom cut in one large piece to fit your bath or shower wall per corner. Acrylic is a sheet installation process for bath or shower walls, definitely not like tile. This creates a glossy finish with many different options and designs to choose from.
Pros: Slip-Resistant, Mold-Resistant, Great Variety of Color & Texture Options, Inexpensive, Easy Installation
Con: Nothing We Can Find!
