Once installed they create a smooth, hard wearing and watertight finish. Using acrylic sheeting in your bathroom will eliminate the need for grouting. Acrylic sheeting is incredibly quick and easy to install, and almost anybody can do it.


Acrylic sheets can also be used to create sink splashbacks, kitchen surface splashbacks and cooker splashbacks. Unlike kitchen tiles and glass splashbacks, acrylic sheeting is shatter resistant, recyclable, lightweight and can be ordered pre-cut. Fitting kitchen splashbacks is incredibly easy. Once your sheet is the right size, it is time to peel away its protective plastic, apply your adhesive, and attach the sheet to a clean and dry surface. You should then wipe away any excess adhesive and wait for it to dry.  Generally speaking, you should leave a 1mm gap at the top and bottom of your panel to ensure that the panel fits with minimal movement. If you are fitting your sheets around sockets and switches a 3-5mm gap should be left around the socket face. At Acrylics Online you can find all the sheeting and accessories you need to create your dream bathroom and kitchen.
