3 Tips for Choosing the Right Bathtub, Clinton, Connecticut

Choosing a new bathtub is one of the most complicated choices of a bathroom remodeling project. The fixture needs to be both functional as well as aesthetically appealing, and tracking down an option that meets both of these requirements can be challenging. To help you find your perfect bathtub, the Connecticut design specialists at Porcelain Glaze offer three helpful tips.

Top 3 Tips for Picking Your New Bathtub

1. Consider the Needs of Regular Users

When choosing your new bathtub, remember to consider the people that will be using it most often. Taller individuals usually have the biggest struggle bathing because many standard models are too short for their limbs to rest comfortably. The best way to ensure that you find a unit with the right dimensions is by taking the tallest tub user with you while you browse.  

2. Don't Forget Space Restrictions

BathtubThe bathtub you choose also needs to fit into the space allotted in your bathroom. In some homes, it may be challenging to find an option that meets the needs of everyone in your household that also fits into the space provided. In this situation, you may have to give a little on the initial dimension requirements. If your current tub serves both your functionality and comfortability requirements, you may want to consider a reglazing service that allows you to continue using the appliance while updating the appearance.

3. Focus On Quality

Most individuals have a set budget in place, but that doesn't mean you should choose the least expensive bathtub solely because of the price. Instead, focus on the quality of the tub and the material of which it is composed. Unlike other types of fixtures, your bathtub is a place to relax and will endure heavy usage over the years, so it needs to be strong and last for decades to come. There are a variety of designers and manufacturers that strive to offer affordable options without sacrificing quality and longevity, so do your research before you make a decision.
