Acrylic wall liners are becoming increasingly popular in New Zealand for their durability, ease of maintenance, and aesthetic appeal. However, as with any building material, there are both pros and cons to consider before deciding. In this blog, we’ll take a closer look at the advantages and disadvantages of acrylic wall liners in New Zealand.
Pros of Acrylic Wall Liners
Durability: Acrylic wall liners are highly resistant to scratches, cracks, and chipping. They are also waterproof, making them ideal for use in wet areas such as bathrooms.
Easy maintenance: Acrylic wall liners require very little maintenance. They can be easily wiped clean with a mild soap and a damp cloth or a non-abrasive sponge.
Aesthetically pleasing: Acrylic wall liners are available in 2-sided, or 3-sided configurations, and mostly in white. If you prefer a more elegant look, a flat wall liner is the right option for you. If you need storage for your shampoo and other toiletries, then either a flat mould or corner mould can work for you and your family.
Quick and easy installation: Acrylic wall liners are lightweight and can be installed quickly and easily by a professional. This means less disruption to your home during the installation process.
Cons of Acrylic Wall Liners
Limited design options: As mentioned, in New Zealand, you usually have 2 different configurations, either 2-sided or 3 sided acrylic wall liners, with mostly one colour available – white. Therefore, they offer a limited design options when compared to tiled showers.
Not suitable for all surfaces: Acrylic wall liners require a smooth, flat surface for installation. If your walls are uneven or have a lot of texture, they may not be a suitable option.
In conclusion, acrylic wall liners are a great choice for homeowners who are looking for a durable, low-maintenance, and aesthetically pleasing option for their walls.
