5 little know facts about high gloss acrylic wall panels | Innovate Building Solutions

It’s fun to look at the glass-like appearance of high gloss acrylic wall panels in a shower, kitchen backsplash or feature wall in an office and say, “Wow – that material is cool.” Yes –gloss wall panels are striking in appearance – but just like you and I – there is a lot more to know about them than is evident on the surface.

How to create a summer home feeling in a 5 foot by 8 foot bathroom Columbus Ohio

Wouldn’t it be cool to feel like you’re enjoying a “summer home” every day you step into your bathroom? While most of us love the idea of owning a summer home many things get into the way (kids, college expenses, health care costs etc.). But what if you get a summer home ambiance – even in your standard 5’ x 8’ bathroom you use every day?

This was the vision of a progressive Columbus Ohio couple when they bought a traditional ranch home about 2 years ago. In the short run this home would provide a place for their daughter, future son in law and grandchild to stay until their careers took them elsewhere. In the long run this home would not only be a comfortable place to retire, but also a place to relax and enjoy – just like being at a summer home (even during the cold Central Ohio winters!).

So how did they create a summer home ambiance in their 5’ x 8’ bathroom? Let’s take a look at the key design concepts and products used.

If you’re like me…. a big fan of contemporary design…. you know finding a modern bathroom and kitchen wall panel system – instead of having to use tile – can be a difficult process. That’s why I was blown away to find an optical grade high gloss acrylic wall panel system a couple of years ago at the International Builders Show. This sleek, contemporary and Euro-inspired look was a magnet for my eyes. It was the type of innovative building product I felt homeowners in the United States would just love.

That’s how my journey with high gloss wall panels (which are used predominately for luxury showers, bath surrounds and modern kitchen backsplashes) began. While I knew taking on a new (and largely unknown in the U.S. market) line would be fun, I understood there was going to be a lot of explaining to do so people would know where and how to use this product. In the article below let’s dig a bit deeper into the frequently asked questions about high gloss bath, kitchen and feature wall panels to unlock the mystery for you.

If you’re an architect, designer, custom builder or homeowner you may be familiar with the concept of coloring the reverse side of a piece of glass to achieve a clean, contemporary and easy to clean wall surface, but you may not have heard about an alternative product – high gloss acrylic walls.
