Solutions on the market
We all know the struggle when we have to choose a new item for the home- what color should it be? Will it fit? Is it going to serve me long? And so many more! The choice of a shower tray is no exception, with a wide range of options ranging from man-made materials to the enduring elegance of natural stone. In the end, we all want the best value for the money that not only works well but has an aesthetic value that cheers us up each time we walk in. So, which option best suits your needs?

Let's delve deeper into two of the most prevalent choices: acrylic shower trays versus natural stone shower trays. We'll break down their attributes and drawbacks in clear terms, helping you make an informed decision.

Acrylic shower trays

Let's dive into the world of acrylic shower trays and see what they have to offer.


  • Less expensive
  • Light in weight (easier to carry)
  • Easy maintenance
  • Waterproof from the start


  • Prone to flexing- after some years of use, the shower tray may start to bend due to the load
  • Prone to scratches
  • Limited sizes and shapes
  • Cannot be renewed

Natural stone shower trays

Despite its natural beauty form by nature, let's see what else a natural stone has to offer.


  • Easy to clean
  • Sturdy- no bending or flexing after decades of use
  • Variety- comes in different sizes, colors and shapes
  • Environmentally friendly- made from natural material
  • Long life span and scratch resistant, can be renewed by repolishing
  • One of a kind- no stone slab is created by nature the same, each piece has its unique veins and colors


  • Higher initial investment
  • Heavy- may require more manpower upon installation
  • Depending on the seller it might need surface treatment to make it waterproof

Everyone has different needs and different budgets for their projects, your choice should consider the features you are looking for and the amount of money you are willing to spend. For some acrylic shower trays might be the best option especially if changing a space interior every few years is a true passion. We believe that natural stone shower trays are a better long-term investment and we are not saying that just because we sell stone shower trays, we believe that stone trays are better for the environment and once you install them- you can stay worry-free for decades to come.
