You might not agree with us, but a simple bathtub can morph your renovation from something simple to something reminiscent of a spa!
Perhaps the most important choice you can make during a bathroom renovation are fixtures. For one, a bathtub is essential in achieving that perfect end product you seek, and all that brings us to choosing the best bathtub.
It’s not difficult to do, as long as you consider some important thumb rules and enlighten yourself on the background options available. Have a read below, and you’ll see what we mean!
The Standard Type
This the most common type of bathtub, but there’s a reason for that. The design is tried and true, which is why it has persisted for so long. These bathtubs come in shower and tub combinations, and they come as alcove models compatible with three-wall recesses and as models that fit framed openings.
They are made of fiberglass, which makes them strong enough to keep you safe and hold plenty of water. The bathtubs are affordable, and because they’re light, easy to install.
The Freestanding Type
The best part about these bathtubs is, they can be installed pretty much anywhere that plumbing allows. So, for those who want something a little different, these bathtubs are perfect when used as centerpieces. Plus, they come in various creative shapes and sizes, so there’s definitely one for you.
If you’re targeting something luxurious, go for this type; the curved back accommodates you in a comfortable position. And these freestanding bathtubs are affordable, too, particularly when compared to steel options.
The Claw foot Type
The claw foot is a variation of the aforementioned freestanding bathtub. The most significant difference is the bathtub’s four feet. More often than not, those feet feature lovely and intricate designs befitting royalty!
Because a bathtub filled with water is heavy, the feet holding it up must be strong too. And there are only four points of contact, so the bathtubs are either cast-iron or porcelain-covered steel.
The thing about claw foot bathtubs is, they look amazing in the right bathroom; we mean a Craftsman-style or an early Victorian bathroom is the perfect bathroom for it. In contrast, it might not look as appealing in a modern-inspired bathroom; its elegance might stand out too much!
There are several more bathtub types, of course, and qualified tradesmen who offer a full range of maintenance are in the best position to advise you on what works and build it for you!
