Why You Should Use Acrylic Instead of Tile for Your Michigan Bathroom Renovation

When you’re planning a bathroom renovation project, one of the most important decisions you’ll need to make is which materials to use in the space. While tile has long been a go-to option for homeowners, acrylic showers and bathtubs are becoming more and more popular. Interested in learning more about the benefits of acrylic for yourself?

Your friendly team here at Atlas Home Improvement is here to help. Keep reading to learn why so many of our customers are opting to use acrylic in their bathrooms. 

Bathroom with acrylic instead of tile for shower walls

It’s a Cost-Effective Option

When you’re planning your bathroom remodel, you’ll want to start by setting a budget. One of the reasons that acrylic is getting more popular is that it’s a less expensive option than tile. When you opt for acrylic, your remodeling dollars will go further so you can get more out of your project.

It Requires Very Little Maintenance

One of the downsides to using tile in your bathroom is that it’s prone to mold and bacteria growth over time, even in places you can’t see, like behind the tiles. This can make it very hard to remedy, even if you spend hours scrubbing your bathroom. 


Acrylic, on the other hand, is a low-maintenance material. It’s specifically designed not to scratch, crack, or chip over time and it has antimicrobial properties to prevent the growth of mold and mildew. All you have to do to keep it clean is wash it with water and a gentle cleanser and it will continue to look great. 

It Comes in a Variety of Styles and Colors

Some homeowners think that since acrylic is a less expensive material, that means it’s a “lesser” option, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Beyond the fact that it’s more durable than tile, it also comes in a variety of design options so you can create a bathroom that looks like it’s straight out of Pinterest. 

All of our acrylic showers and bathtubs look modern and high-end so your bathroom gets the upgrade it deserves. 

It’s Easy to Install

Unfortunately, bathroom remodels often have a reputation for being long, drawn-out, and stressful. When you hire the Atlas Home Improvement team to install acrylic products, however, the opposite is true. 

Acrylic is easy and convenient to put in place and in many cases, our team can complete the installation in as little as just one day! As a result, you’ll get the bathroom of your dreams in almost no time at all so you and your family can start using it as soon as possible.

"I have been impressed with Atlas home improvement they do things the way I would. Kelly was our installer and was unbelievably hard-working very conscientious and even went the extra mile and called in a grizzly Veteran plumber when presented with a problem. We have used Atlas before and will again soon!"

"This was our second experience with Atlas. The shower in our last home was truly a primary selling feature. We returned to Atlas because of the quality of the job and the professionalism of the install. We were happy to see the same installers we had at our other house three years ago arrive here today. Chad and Bill did an excellent job. We received the same professionalism and quality we expected. They arrived with all the materials they would need, no hidden surprises, quality materials. They truly live up to everything they promise!"

"Recently, Atlas Home Improvement finished the second phase of my bathroom remodel. Matt and Chad were here every morning on time, stated in their morning phone call. They were friendly, efficient, knew their job and the job site was always in order and clean. They even went out of their way to make sure I was aware of all aspects of the job. They were GREAT!!! This is a great company!!! Very clean and considerate while putting in my new shower. Time the sales consultant was wonderful and really listened to what I want and was never pushy or tried to sell me something I didn't want. David did a wonderful job installing my shower. Great product they sell. I recommend this company highly!"

"Dave put in a stair lift for me and I was very, very pleased with the whole experience. He assessed the situation with an eye on my safety and recommended changing the side of the staircase the lift was to be installed on. He did the installation quietly and quickly and without creating any mess. And he made sure I understood how the equipment worked and watched me test ride it. I could not have been more satisfied with the whole process. I would highly recommend Atlas to any senior looking to modify their home so that they can age in place."

"We were experiencing temperature problems with our brand new walk-in tub, in that the temperature would not get very hot. After a call to Atlas we were scheduled by the office staff for an appointment within 2 days, which we very much appreciated. Dave arrived on time and immediately diagnosed the problem - and he quickly fixed it. Dave was very professional, pleasant, friendly, and knowledgeable. Our problem has now been fixed! Thank you Atlas for having such a great installation, office, and repair staff."

"We had our shower completely re-done by Dave. It was a custom job that involved replacing a sub floor and some plumbing issues. They were friendly, hard workers, our shower turned out perfect! I strongly recommend Atlas Home Improvement they stand by their work!"

"Our dealings with Atlas Home Improvement have been nothing but a delight. We had booked them through Home Depot Home Services which had a salesman come out and was easy to deal with and took his time to explain all of the steps to the process. Atlas delivered the exact way they had promised we were in the loop knowing when our materials were ordered when they came in and to finally setting up the appointment. The workmanship was 5 star excellent and we could not have been happier with our new shower enclosure it really made a difference!"
