Once you’ve decided to have your bathroom remodeled, there will be plenty of important decisions to make. You’ll have to decide on décor, flooring, paint colors and much more. One of the most important decisions you’ll have to make will be about the bathtub.
What type of bathtub is going to best meet you and your family’s needs? Which bathtub would work better in the space provided? Will it even fit in the space? There are plenty of questions you’ll want to ask yourself before deciding on a bathtub.
Deciding on a size
One of the first things you’ll want to consider is the size of your bathroom. While one style of tub might work better with the décor, it may not even fit in the space. That’s why it’s important to correctly measure your space before making a decision. For the most part, it’s recommended to go with a larger tub. That said, there are plenty of options for smaller tubs that could work well in any space, such as alcove or drop-in tubs.
It’s also important to consider weight when deciding on a bathtub. Don’t choose a tub that’s too heavy for your flooring to handle, especially if your bathtub is located on the second floor. A remodeling professional should be able to give you bathtub material options that aren’t too heavy for your floor.
Think about style
Almost as important as the size of your new bathtub is the style. If you’re investing in a bathroom remodel, you’ll want to choose the perfect type of bathtub. There are several different styles available, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. Freestanding bathtubs, for example, are extremely common and offer a modern look to any bathroom. They are also stylish and can fit into almost any space. The major downside with freestanding tubs is that they’re usually expensive.
Oval bathtubs are also quite popular thanks to their elegant look and small size. Their size is a major reason oval bathtubs are popular with apartments. If you’re looking for something a bit larger, consider an angled bathtub. Other great bathtub options include clawfoot tubs, alcove tubs and corner tubs. Contact your local supplier, and see what types of bathtubs they have in stock.
Go with the right material
As with the style, there are many options when it comes to bathtub materials. Choosing the right material is important, as you’ll want something that looks good but is also durable. One of the most common materials for bathtubs is fiberglass because it’s inexpensive and durable. That said, fiberglass tubs are more prone to warping because it’s a porous material. Porcelain is also quite popular, as it’s beautiful and easy to clean. Other great material options include acrylic, ceramic and stone resin.
