If you are renovating your bathroom, we know that it is very hard to find a perfect bathtub. There are so many things for you to consider like size of the bathtub, materials, colors and so on. With these simple steps, we hope that you can find the perfect one which can bring you joy and light up your bathroom.
Step 1: What style of bathtub that is perfect for your bathroom?
There are so many types of bathtub like freestanding bathtub, whirlpool bathtub, walk-in bathtub...Considering carefully which type that you love and which one will be the most appropriate for your bathroom.
Step 2: Size matters
Like we said size matters, even when you choose the bathtub that you love the most but it can not fit your bathroom’s size then it is not the perfect one. Generally, if your home has the space for it,do not hesitate to choose the larger tub. In the case of freestanding and corner bathtubs, if you have the requisite space, choose those styles. But if your space is more limited, we believe that the alcove, walk-in, and soaking bathtub will be more suitable for you.
Step 3: Have you checked the materials yet?
We know a lot of customers they just simply pick but do not consider carefully the material of bathtub that they want to have.
Fibreglass – probably the most economical option, fibreglass bathtubs are extremely lightweight, however not as durable as other alternatives. Those with gel coatings afford a glossy, easy-to- clean surface however are often very slippery as well.
Acrylic – a popular alternative to fibreglass, acrylic bathtubs are more expensive however are more durable and retain heat better.
Enamelled cast iron – a great choice for those after a classic look, cast iron bathtubs retain heat better than any other material and although not the cheapest option, they are extremely durable.
Cast polymer (often called composite) – this engineered material coated in enamel offers the heat retention of a cast-iron tub at a third of the weight.
Enamelled steel – these look and feel much like cast iron tubs and have the advantage of being much lighter in weight, however they don't retain heat as well as cast iron and tend to be noisier.
Stone – if you’re looking to really amp up your bathroom renovation (and your budget!), it’s worth considering a stone bathtub. Stonecast resin and stone composite bathtubs are made from engineered materials that mimic the look and beautiful appeal of natural materials like limestone, marble and granite.
Copper – probably the ultimate in tub-soaking luxury, copper bathtubs faultlessly conduct and retain heat, and if you’re after a truly unique bathroom piece, can be handcrafted into any shape you desire!
Step 4: Last but not least, your lifestyle
We know how much the bathtub will affect your lifestyle and decoration so choosing the right one will level up your bathroom. If you love the modern classic style or just want to have the perfect feed on your instagram, the freestanding bathtub will be the perfect one. But if your family has someone with mobility, disability or aging-in-place concerns, the walk-in bathtub must be considered.
