Showers That Are Easy to Maintain

Is your shower the one thing in your home that you dread cleaning the most? There are many materials used in showers that aren’t ideal to clean and have a lot of maintenance attached to them. For example, a tile shower is more prone to mold and build up in the cracks causing them to need cleaning every week or two. Grout is also something that you will have to keep maintained with tile. So, let’s talk about the materials you should be choosing for your shower.


Shower Wall Panels:

This option is low maintenance and requires less work to install, a double win! If you have never considered this option, it’s definitely something worth checking out. There are many different designs and textures to choose from, the hardest part will be picking out which one you want to use. For installation, it requires much less than a tile job.

Porcelain or quartz panels:

This option can also come in cultured marble. Cultured marble is not real marble which makes it customizable, it’s easy to clean, install and it’s durable.

Acrylic and Fiberglass:

These materials are by far the easiest to clean when it comes to showers. Because they come in one sheet, there is no use of grout. Grout allows for water to get into the cracks encouraging mold growth. Need to clean your acrylic or fiberglass shower? Simply wiping it down with soapy water will take care of that in no time. This is the best option to consider if you want to avoid shower maintenance at all costs. It’s also easy and can be cheaply installed if you are handy at all. It can be done without any skilled labor or professional help if you are on a budget.
