home remodeling project, you need to start with a remodeling design. Taking measurements
of the space will help you plan what type of bathroom features you will
have room for in your space. A bathtub will take up most space, aside
from the vanity or shower, so you should do your research to discover
what type of bathtub you might want and what you will have to plan around.
Bathtubs come in a variety of different sizes, shapes, and designs, so
there is an option to match any home décor. Continue reading to
see what some of the different options are and a few tips to help you
make the right decision for you.
Know What Types of Bathtubs There Are
While there are many types of bathtubs, you should know there are two
main types of tubs—freestanding and built-in. Freestanding tubs,
such as a claw foot tub, are often used as the focal point in a bathroom.
They offer a more dramatic choice of style. Other types of bathtubs, such
as alcove, drop-in, or corner tubs, are often built into the overall theme
of the bathroom, and do not stand out as much. Alcove tubs are often used
as a bath and shower combination, making it a great choice when space
is tight but you still want to include a bathtub.
Research Different Materials
Just as bathtubs come in different types, they are also made of a variety
of materials. Acrylic and fiberglass are most commonly used, as they are
durable and are budget-friendly. Other choices like metals or stone can
create a unique look in your bathroom.
Consider What Features You Want
There is nothing wrong with a clean and simple classic bathtub, but if
you are looking to create a bathtub that is a tranquil, relaxing oasis,
then you have some additional options. Add-on features, like jets and
bubbles, are easily built-in and can be used to provide extra comfort.
