Choosing The Right Bathtub For Yoru Bathroon Remodel

Posted on: 27 November 2015

If you are remodeling your bathroom, you should put a good deal of thought into the type of bathtub you have put in your bathroom. First, you'll need to decide whether your bathtub is to be more for looks, comfort or to cater to mobility issues or other health problems. Once you determine this, the information in this article will help you to decide on a model.

Bathtubs for a good look

If you are most concerned about the appearance of your bathroom, then you will find a lot of tubs on the market that will add flair to the bathroom.

Clawfoot bathtubs: One type of tub is a clawfoot tub. This is a tub that sits off the ground on feet that generally have intricate designs. Clawfoot bathtubs can be traced back to the 1800's and this helps add a vintage feel to the space.

Natural stone bathtubs: If you're remodeling your bathroom to have an outdoor theme, you can find natural stone bathtubs in a variety of styles and shapes. You can get them in the shape of a waterfall, a rock textured basin or simply like a traditional tub made of stone-looking material.

Bathtubs for comfortable baths

If you are a person who wants to end your day by melting in a very comfortable bath while reading a good book, then you want to put the majority of focus on finding a bathtub that feels good.

Whirlpool bathtubs: A whirlpool bathtub will provide you with the chance to relax in a bath that feels more like a hot tub. The jets of a whirlpool tub can be adjusted to offer you massaging streams that help you feel great and relieve tired or achy muscles.

Custom-shaped bathtubs: You can have a custom- shaped tub put in your hoe that has a shape that fits your needs. Your tub can have a seat in it or it can even be shaped like a lounger. These tubs allow you to melt right to them so you get the most out of your bath.  

Bathtubs for mobility issues

When you have a hard time moving around your bathroom, it can be both uncomfortable and dangerous. It's important you have a tub installed that creates a proper bathing experience for your needs.

Walk-in bathtubs: A walk-in bathtub allows you to walk right into it through a door in the side that seals completely when shut to keep the water in. It also has a slip-resistant seat and a handheld showerhead for easy bathing.

Step-up Bathtubs: If you have trouble maneuvering your leg over the side of the tub, you can get one that has a step midway up. This makes it a shorter distance that you have to lift your legs to enter the tub.

Work with your home improvement contractor to choose the right size and shape for your bathroom. Once you decide on the right bathtub for your needs, your contractor will be able to make any necessary changes and install it for you, along with taking care of the other changes you are having done.
