The bathtub is often the focal point of the bathroom. Replacing it can be costly and time-consuming, so you start the process by taking all necessary measures. To ensure that your new bathtub can be used without issue, it must be properly installed.
Here are four mistakes you should avoid when replacing your bathtub.
- Buying the Wrong Size of Bathtub
The most common mistake made during bathtub replacement is failing to take into account who will be using it most frequently. For example, if you share the tub with a partner or you have kids who usually take a bath together, make sure your new tub is large enough for two or more people. Furthermore, don’t forget to make sure your tub isn’t too big or too small for your bathroom.
- Measuring the Space Incorrectly
You should also consider how much space will be available once all of the other fixtures and fittings have been installed in your bathroom. If you do not take these factors into account, you might end up with a bathtub that is too big or too small and does not meet all of your needs.
- Overlooking Maintenance Costs
Find out how much maintenance will be required to keep your tub looking good as new. Some bathtubs are made from materials or have designs that are difficult to clean. This is something to think about when shopping for a new bathtub
- Mismatching Style
Another common mistake with tub design is attempting to go with a specific look rather than considering what’s best for the bathroom space. The traditional bathtub design has been around for a reason – it works well in most bathrooms. So, if a modern style doesn’t suit your space or your overall home design, make sure you don’t force it.
