The choice that you make for a new bathtub will depend upon who in your family uses it, the purpose that the tub will be used for more frequently, and the interior design that you want to feature in your bathroom. If you want to soak at the end of a busy day, your bathtub will need to be deep enough to immerse most of your body. If you’d prefer to soak away your cares in a plethora of bubbles then you should think about a whirlpool bath. Just as important are the family members who will be using this tub; do you have children who love to splash and play? Or do you have older family members living with you who need a safe tub to enter and exit? As you decide which tub will work for you, take some of the following points into consideration.
You should start by thinking about the amount of space that you have for a tub, if you want to try a new style of tub, and how much you can afford for this focal point in your bathroom. You’ll need to get some accurate measurements so that you won’t buy something that’s too large for the area that you have. Will you change from a traditional tub to a freestanding style? If so you’ll have to make some changes in the layout of your current bathroom and determine what type of plumbing modifications need to be handled. Always remember that if you don’t have the skills to do this yourself hire a professional tradesman to do the work for you.
You must also give special consideration to the materials that your tub will be made from. These materials will impact the weight of your tub, how you keep it clean, and the durability that you get from your tub. The Carron Imperial Bath Collection is an excellent option when you want outstanding value and reliability. Materials used in construction can also help you conserve energy by keeping the water hot in your tub for a longer period of time.
Will you want a tub that’s single-ended or one that is a double-ended model? Your choice will depend on the amount of space that you have in your bathroom and how you prefer getting into and out of the tub. You’ll be able to choose from slipper shapes and roll top edges that can give an elegant look to a very functional tub.
If you would like to have a whirlpool tub, think about the number and placement of the jets that you want. Be sure to get a tub that’s the right size for your body so that you can truly relax and enjoy the bubbles that are soothing your tired body.
