If you’re tired of the look and maintenance hassle of ceramic tile and grout joints you’re not alone! While tile is still very popular, for those wanting low maintenance, contemporary kitchen and bath designs are steering towards new choices like high gloss acrylic walls. Learn more below about this product and its top 5 benefits.

 

What are high gloss acrylic walls and where are they used?  – High gloss acrylic wall panels are 5/32” thick, have a high gloss mirrored finish (much like back painted glass) with an integrated fused color layer. This material is coated with a micro-hard coat outer layer for scratch resistance and comes in a variety of sizes (including 39” x 96” x 60” x 72”, 36” x 60” and 42” x 60”). They are used most frequently in kitchen backsplashes and tub and shower wall surrounds.

 Top 5 benefits of high gloss acrylic wall

These walls panels have many benefits but I’ll outline the top 5 here.

1 – Creates a glass look with the benefits of acrylic – High gloss acrylic panels are 25 times stronger than glass, less expensive than glass and are easier to work with (cut, drill etc.) on the job site. These panels are also warm to the touch.

2 – 100% waterproof – Since this material is 100% waterproof you don’t have to worry about mold, mildew or the failure of the shower or tub wall system due to water penetration.

 3 – Clean, contemporary look –Sleek and contemporary, streamlined lines are all the rage in kitchen and bath remodeling today and high gloss acrylic walls will help you to take advantage of these design trends.

    Kristi – good question. I would budget about $2,700 to $2,900 for high gloss shower wall panels to fill a 60 x 36 x 96 sized space including shipping. You can use the same backer board system as you use behind other acrylic wall panels.
