Bathroom Remodeling: Choosing Your New Bathtub

Are you a homeowner? If so, what would you like to change about your bathroom? If you're like many other homeowners, the bathtub is likely your response. In the United States, there are quite a few homeowners who wish they had a new bathtub. If you're one of those individuals, did you know that you don’t have to wish any longer? If you want a new bathtub, you should get one. Making a new bathtub part of your kitchen remodeling project isn’t as difficult as it may seem.

Perhaps the first step in choosing a new bathtub is determining how much money you can afford to spend on one. If you're also remodeling the rest of your bathroom, it's important to not only focus on the cost of a new bathtub, but also the cost of your other supplies. If you mistakenly spend too much on a new bathtub, your other bathroom remodeling plans could suffer. Additionally, you'll likely find that having a bathtub limit or budget is the best way to save time while shopping. Knowing how much money is too much to spend will prevent you from wasting time examining bathtubs that you cannot afford.

It's also a good idea to determine ahead of time how your new bathtub will be installed. If you're planning on having a professional install your new bathtub for you, you'll need to keep the extra costs in mind. Although you may want to avoid paying a professional contractor, you may need to. There are a number of bathroom contractors who specialize in replacing bathtubs. In fact, some literally just place a new bathtub right over the old one. It may be possible for you to do this yourself, but in most cases, you'll find that a professional contractor could have your new bathtub installed in just a few hours.

Regardless of whether you choose to install your own bathtub or have a professional do it for you, you'll need to find a new bathtub to purchase. If you're looking to have your old bathtub completely removed, you'll likely find that you have more options. When a new bathtub replaces an old bathtub, the tubs need to be about the same size or style. Therefore, if you're remodeling your bathroom with the hopes of getting a "new" bathroom, you may be looking for something different. Luckily for you, you still have an unlimited number of options.

In the United States, the most commonly installed types of bathtubs include traditional ones, also known as standard tubs. These bathtubs are often connected right to the wall, placed in a corner, and sit directly on the floor. What's nice about most traditional bathtubs is that they are relatively affordable. You can purchase a traditional bathtub for as low as two hundred dollars. If you're looking for comfort instead of price, you may want to look into spa-like bathtubs or even massage bathtubs. These bathtubs, as you may assume, cost more than most others. Many massage bathtubs or spa-like bathtubs retail for around one or two thousand dollars. If you're looking for a trendy, stylish bathtub, you may prefer to own a freestanding bathtub. Freestanding bathtubs can cost as low as five hundred dollars, but they can also reach into the thousands.

Once you've decided on the type of bathtub you'd like to purchase, you'll need to decide on a particular tub. Perhaps the best way to do this is to start your shopping. You may find it easier to make a decision when you can see bathtub displays set up. For a wide selection of bathtubs, including displays, you're advised to check out one of your local home improvement stores.
