Shower Walls: What Options Do You Have With Expo Home Improvement?

Posted in Bathrooms , Showers

When you dream about the ideal shower, what do you picture? Close your eyes and envision the bathroom of your dreams and the shower stall within it.

We can guess first what you don't envision. You're likely not dreaming about cracked and chipped shower doors, leaky faucets, clogged drains, inadequate water pressure, water spots on the walls, a slippery floor, a hazardous threshold, razors and shampoo bottles falling off ledges, or persistently moldy grout that refuses to come clean. Those common shower complaints don't make you feel clean and serene, do they? They might even make you feel stressed and overwhelmed.

Now we'll guess what you see when you mentally sketch out a best-case scenario: a sparkling, well-lit new shower that makes you feel like you've stepped beneath a tropical waterfall, producing the feeling of a spa-like haven that sends you into deep relaxation and peace. Are we getting warmer?

If your vision of a perfect shower doesn't align with your everyday ablution experience right now, we're happy to talk with you about how you can achieve bathing bliss. It all starts with figuring out what features you want in a shower and what visual effect you want to achieve in your bathroom. Expo Home Improvement offers a wide array of shower options, and we'll run down all of them for you here.

Expo: Showering You in Wall Options

At Expo, we have stylish shower options that meet every lifestyle and need. When you work with us, you get a custom shower designed and made to your specifications so that you get exactly that oasis you've envisioned. It's all possible because we have myriad ways to customize your shower, down to the optional accessories and details.

Why You Should Consider Acrylic

First, let's talk about materials for your shower walls. Shower walls typically come in a variety of options when it comes to materials: glass tile, natural stone tile such as marble, ceramic tile, porcelain tile, single-sheet plastic, laminated wall panels, fiberglass, and acrylic.

Each can offer its advantages, but we recommend acrylic shower walls all the way. Why? Acrylic is safe, easy to install, and simple to maintain, plus its durability means it won't chip, crack, peel, or fade.

Acrylic shower walls are also customizable to the nth degree. You can select the base color of the shower, the wall surround, and the accessories you want in order to construct the shower of your dreams. Wall surrounds come in tile patterns, simulated granites and marbles, and solid colors, so you can create a wide variety of styles and effects. Optional accessories include soap dishes, shower caddies, shelves, foot pedestals, seating, and more, so you can customize to your heart's (and family's) content.

Acrylic is also infused with an antimicrobial agent that resists mold and mildew, meaning it'll stand the test of time. The Silver Shield™ technology applied to the acrylic we use is an FDA-approved, state-of-the-art advancement that medical facilities employ to keep their spaces hygienic and safe. How does Silver Shield™ ward off bacteria? Silver ions emit charges that can penetrate microorganisms; they attack the microbe cells and prevent the bacteria from growing on your shower walls. During installation, our installers and master plumbers use their eye for sanitation to ensure that harmful bacteria aren't hiding in crevices as they put in your new shower.

And because the acrylic material is non-porous and impermeable, it's resistant to stains. The solid surface also ensures that cleaning and disinfecting remain a breeze through the shower's lifetime.

Still thinking about the look of granite, marble, or stone? You don't have to sacrifice aesthetics to enjoy the benefits of acrylic. Our solid-surface products can mimic their appearance without introducing any of the drawbacks, such as difficult cleaning or cracking. That's not to mention the hefty price tag that options like marble and granite can command. Expo's custom options are designed with you in mind, with considerations extending all the way to your pocketbook.
