How to choose the right bathtub?

By KBC Kitchen & Bathroom

Bathtubs are being used by humans since eternal years. Romans had already started using bathtubs since the year 500 B.C. To be very frank, a bathtub occupies a vital part in our daily lives. It helps you to prepare yourself for the day ahead and is also known to revitalize the spirit and rejuvenate the energy after a stressful day at work.

It is unquestionable that bathtubs are the best additions to all bathrooms.  Today, bathtubs are available in an array of varying designs, forms and styles. As a result, the task of choosing a bathtub is as confusing as selecting a candy from a candy store.

 

Below is a list of certain tips to assist you in selecting the right bathtub for you –

1) Set your budget – bathtubs are available in a wide variety of functions, sizes, colors and styles. Setting a budget before you start looking for the right bathtub will limit your choosing and prevent you from overspending.

2) Measure the available space in your bathroom – By measuring the available space in your bathroom, you will be able to ascertain the right size of the bathtub for your bathroom. Most of the people assume that bathtubs are meant for large spaces only. However, this is not true. Bath tubs are available for small spaces also. Assure that you have the dimensions of the available space noted in a piece of paper so that you can check whether a bathtub fits well in the measurement or not.

 

3) Select the right features – the essential purpose of a bathtub is for bathing but the modern bath tubs are available with an array of features. However, an extra feature simply implies more cost. You may be carried away by seeing the extra features, but you need to question yourself whether the features are useful to you or not. If they are useful and there are no sorts of space and budget constraints, then definitely, it would be worth an investment.

 

4) Choose the right material – most of the bathtubs are made of acrylic or fiberglass. However, many of them are also manufactured out of cast iron, steel and water proof mood. Select a material according to your taste and ambience of the bathroom.

5) Select a bathtub which is easy to maintain – Varied materials are known to repel soap scum and dirt to different levels. It is always better to select one, which requires minimum maintenance.

Before and after bathroom makeover

By KBC Kitchen & Bathroom

After moving into their new home in Michigan, the new homeowners had to face the challenges. The kitchen and the bathroom definitely needed a renovation so they’ve decided to focus on those spaces. Today we’re going to take a look at the bathroom and see the way it looked like before and then the way it turned out.

 

The new owners moved in in February 2011 and they’ve managed to finish the kitchen and the bathroom in March. I would say they were fast, considering the makeover they’ve come up with by themselves. Actually, the bathroom was done in about a week. They had some inspiration from a blog that had a bedroom with the same color. It might seem like a well-thought plan, but as the owners declare themselves, they didn’t get to do much planning.

They wanted to maintain a quasi-historical look but also make their presence visible by adding their own touch. They took a chance with the black paint but it turned out to be an inspired choice. The hardest part was not painting or redecorating the room but taring it down and preparing it for the bathroom makeover. That’s because of its small size. Another difficult part was finding pieces that would fit in there and try to mix and match them. It wasn’t easy but the results are satisfying and the owners are happy with their new bathroom.
