The applications of Perspex, also known as acrylic glass, traverse a myriad of industries—for example, construction and fashion. Its characteristics are what make Perspex the go-to material in modern construction. However, there is no reason why you cannot use Perspex inside your home. The advantages it provides far outweigh those of glass and plastics combined. Other than your windows and doors, you might wonder where else you could use Perspex in your home. This article highlights the various areas you can use acrylic glass and still maintain functionality as well as aesthetics.
Bed Frames -- Traditionally, wood and iron have been used for making bed frames. However, wood requires careful treatment if durability is needed, and metal bed frames are expensive, especially the corrosion-resistant type. Besides, the cheaper ones are susceptible to rusting. Acrylic glass combines the functionality of all these materials into one. Unlike wood, Perspex bed frames are less likely to crack or break. As such, you would only need to replace the bed frame for preference reasons and not because it is broken or cracked. Moreover, an acrylic glass sheet is easy to cut, which means that you can create your bed frame using your preferred design from scratch.
Picture Frames -- The reason most people prefer smaller picture frames is that bigger ones are costly. Therefore, if you are of the opinion that paying a lot for a picture frame that is susceptible to breaking is unreasonable, you should try Perspex picture frames. Unlike glass, acrylic glass is lighter and more importantly durable. Since it is just as clear as glass, making the change should not be difficult. Furthermore, Perspex photo frames do not come apart easily; consequently, you do not have to worry about your pieces of art and pictures being damaged.
Bathroom Backlash -- The hassle that comes with cleaning bathroom tiles cannot be underestimated. Although tiles are a popular choice for bathrooms, Perspex is low maintenance and cheap. The grout joints between tiles allow water to slip through, thereby encouraging the growth of mold and mildew, which are health hazards. Moreover, depending on the amount of water that slips through your tiled bathroom walls, there is a possibility of damaging the in-wall shower system. On the other hand, acrylic glass will prevent water from slipping through the walls. Due to the material's ease of cleaning, you would not have to worry about mold in the bathroom. All you would ever need is warm water and a sponge.Share
