Known for their lasting shine despite the wear and tear, freestanding acrylic bathtubs have been the number one choice for many homeowners. Compared to the sprayed-on fiberglass bathtubs, acrylic bathtubs are thicker, sturdier and durable and have a high value for money. With a strong cast acrylic base, these bathtubs are highly resistant to cracking and chipping and are built to withstand the test of time.
Acrylic tubs and acrylic slipper tubs are known for their value for money. Although slightly pricier than fiberglass, such bathtubs are easier to maintain and require minimal maintenance costs. Simply wash off your bathtub with plain soap and water and your bathtub will last throughout its lifetime, without any discoloration. Maintaining such bathtubs does not require any scrubbing or frequent replacement of tub liners, and the choices are unlimited – i.e. acrylic bathtubs come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, colors and designs.
Homeowners are frequently on the lookout for high quality, luxurious, aesthetically pleasant and low-maintenance bathtub materials, and acrylic meets all their demands. In addition, the material can be customized into any shape and specification, and can easily be fitted into any bathroom. Freestanding acrylic tubs blend perfectly with any tiles and wall colors, and can be redesigned to accommodate individuals of varying heights.
Whether you’re impressed by an L-shaped, oval or elongated tub, the acrylic bathtubs can be customized to meet all your needs. If you’re looking for the perfect blend of traditional and modern architecture, then let your contractor create a high quality acrylic slipper tub. Acrylic material has a nonporous surface, allowing it to retain the heat from warm water. If you enjoy long and relaxing warm water baths, then acrylic tubs are just what you need!
A typical freestanding acrylic tub weighs around 75 lbs (approximately 34 kg). This makes it exceptionally lightweight, easy to carry, and transport, compared to a cast-iron bathtub (which weight around 350 lbs and requires a crane or at least four people to lift it up). If you wish to have a bathtub installed and your bathroom is on the upper floor or if you live on the 2nd floor or above in an apartment building, then an acrylic bathtub is what you should be buying.
Acrylic tubs remain one of the most widely purchased bathtubs all across the globe. More and more homeowners are now opting for the popular freestanding acrylic tubs and acrylic slipper tubs. This is primarily because of their aesthetic appeal. Whether you live in a luxurious mansion, a chateau or even a duplex or a condo, such bathtubs go well with any house construction and bathroom design. With their reasonable costs and lifetime benefits, such bathtubs are the best choice for individuals belonging to any income stratum.
