Taking a bath after a long day is the ultimate relaxation; however, getting the right bathtub can be fraught not just with stress but anxiety as well.
There's an array of materials, sizes, and shapes available today, but it is a decision that you have to get right. Removing and replacing a tub is not high on any person’s list of exciting and fun activities. Take your time throughout the selection process and be meticulous by following the steps that we have laid out below.
What is your desired bathing experience?
If you are someone who likes a long bath, then your top consideration has to be the experience that you get from a new bathtub. The type of bathtub you get can play a massive role in your bathing experience, particularly with features like water and air jets, but there are more considerations that you need to remember.
The size and shape of the tub can influence how comfortable and how well you’ll fit inside. If your tub isn’t of the right size, especially when it is too short, you can’t fully recline in it. If it is too long, you’ll miss being able to put your feet up from one end of the tub.
Likewise, the depth of your tub will affect the amount of water you will be able to fill the unit with. There are people who appreciate being submerged fully to a certain degree and this may only be possible with soaker tubs. A soaking tub has extra-deep dimensions, which allow the user to completely submerge the entire body in water for the ultimate relaxation.
If you wish to turn your bathroom into a romantic retreat for you and your significant other, you might want toopt for a bigger, two-seater wrirlpool tub with jets that push water around to provide a gentle, soothing massage.
How well insulated your tub’s walls are will also determine the duration for which your tub stays hot.
