Denver Natural Stone Shower vs. An Acrylic Tub Surround

Remodeling any bathroom comes with a long list of decisions. No matter the beginning product - be it a blank slate or 1960’s pastel project, there are going to be multiple options for creating precisely what each and every homeowner envisions. From cabinetry to hardware, there is plenty from which to choose and many construction materials offer a variety of different options in order to meet the interior design wishes of all people across the country. 

One of the focal points inside any bathroom is the tub, shower, or combination of each. It is here where eyes are immediately drawn when entering a space and also an area where there are a number of different construction options available. An example of tub surround includes any material that essentially serves as a backsplash or vertical wall for pieces attached or directly beside a bathtub. Companies have even taken surrounds to another level with overlays over existing bathroom materials but these acrylic fits falter in comparison to natural stone tiles.


There’s no denying a composite, acrylic, man-made, plastic tub surround will last for a considerable time period after initial installation but natural stone still holds the advantage. As a natural material, tile will outlast many other construction options for a bath or shower. These natural stone options are likely to outlast owners regardless of when they are installed.


Natural stone offers many more options than plastic surrounds. With tile, there are not only design capabilities in terms of layout but the colors also typically extend one bland selection. For acrylic tub surrounds, there are only a handful of colors with even less molding options available to mimic the look of tile. Instead, electing to have the real thing will open up your bathroom to an endless opportunity of design characteristics.


Having a natural stone shower instead of a plastic cover up has the potential to raise your property value. No matter your current situation, established homeowners have an opportunity to enjoy the natural stone upgrade and in the event this property is placed on the market, it’s sure to bring about a generous amount of revenue.


Don’t be fooled by the term “tub surround” as this general wording can encompass a variety of different styles and materials. In fact, if you are sold on the natural stone look, it may even be possible to incorporate a tub with natural stone surround so homeowners can enjoy the best of both worlds in any bathroom.
