Choosing the perfect bathtub

Taking a bath is supposed to be relaxing and rejuvenating. It can also be romantic. However, if you’ve ever taken a bath in the wrong type of bathtub, you’ll know that it is anything but that! Our design experts can help you pick out the perfect bathtub.

Measure the space for your bathtub

Before you meet with our designers, come prepared with measurements. We can look at bathtubs all day long, but if we don’t know what dimensions we are working with, it’s going to be hard to pinpoint the perfect tub.

Determine the installation method of your tub

Next, we can narrow your choices by eliminating a few styles. Everyone has a mental picture of their dream bathroom, so close your eyes and picture the tub. Is it freestanding, recessed, on a platform, or some other unique style that we haven’t considered yet?

Any physical limitations that the user may have should also be taken into consideration. Do you need to step down into the tub, or can you step up?

Picking materials for your bathtub

Choosing the perfect bathtub material

The tub should compliment the style of your bathroom. Common bathtub materials are:

  • Acrylic
  • Cast Iron
  • Fiberglass
  • Marble

Each type of material comes with advantages and disadvantages regarding how they feel and how easy they are to maintain. The cost will also come into play. Your budget can help us narrow down your choices of materials.

You should feel comfortable in your tub

The most important aspect of a bathtub is that you fit into it comfortably. If you want all the benefits of a soothing bubble bath, get a tub where you can relax, not one where you have to contort your limbs to fit.
