It's a bit ironic that some of the most well-decorated homes, often have an ugly, outdated tub hiding somewhere in one of their bathrooms. It's understandable. After all, it's something that guests don't have the opportunity to see on a daily basis, and something that many homeowners are okay dealing with. But there comes a point, as many will agree, when older bathroom tubs just become too hideous for their own good.
If this scenario strikes a nerve, maybe it's time to start thinking about upgrading your old tub with something more spacious, modern or befitting the rest of your home. Let's explore a few of the most popular tub upgrade options:
Known for their generous depths and clean, distinctive design, soaker tubs are an ideal solution for those working within more narrow space limitations, yet still seeking something stylish and accommodating. They allow you to soak up to your neck without having to squirm around, making them perfect for unwinding after a long, stressful day.
If you're going for a more timeless or elegant look, installing a claw foot bathtub is a great move that will add years of beauty, value and comfort to any of your home's bathrooms. The style dates back centuries and was made popular most famously during the days of Victorian construction. They look amazing in any home and there are countless styles and sizes to select from.
Think of pedestal bathtubs as somewhat of a mix between soaker and Clawfoot tubs, only without the legs. They offer the depth of a soaker, the modern elegance of a Clawfoot, with the added beauty of an elevated base that adds a distinguished look to any bathroom remodeling project. Because of their narrow base they can be installed in bathrooms ranging from small to large.
For those seeking the ultimate in relaxation, installing a whirlpool bathtub is nothing short of an investment in your personal wellbeing. They come in a wide range of designs and sizes to accommodate bathrooms of all sizes, as well as prices to fit most budgets. Whirlpool tubs offer a powerful massage that will feel heavenly after a long day.
Similar in nature to whirlpool tubs, air bathtubs are ideal for those who want the benefits of moving water without the excessive force of a traditional whirlpool. They feature a separate air unit that provides a gentle stream of forced air, to circulate water and help relax the body. Like most modern bathtub replacements, air tubs come in a diverse selection of sizes, styles and air intensities.
