The bathroom is without a doubt one of the most important rooms in the house, and so it’s vital that it’s kitted out with all of the fixtures and fittings that you want. There’s no point in having a bathroom that you think is ugly, or which you don’t believe represents the overall design of your home. If you’re embarrassed to let your guests use your facilities, it’s definitely time for an upgrade!
Bathtubs are still as popular today as they were when they were first invented, and they’re another essential piece of kit within your bathroom. Enjoying a long soak after a tiring day is one of the best experiences out there, and a lot has been done to improve the ergonomics of bathtubs over the years to ensure they’re as comfortable as possible. This, coupled with the modern designs that you can now benefit from, is just one of the reasons why you may want to replace your existing bathtub with a new one.
However, when you’re planning your new bathroom, or even if you’re only thinking of upgrading, it’s important that you take everything into account to ensure you end up with the best possible outcome. You’ll obviously want your bathroom to be perfect, and choosing the right bathtub for the room will help you to do this!
Here are just a few of things you’ll need to consider if you’re planning on getting a new bathtub fitting in the coming months:
Do you want to combine a bath and shower with an over-bath shower? – If you’re wondering whether or not you really have space for the luxury of a bath and a shower, consider the option of an over-bath shower. This type of fixture is a bath, with a shower head attached to the taps that is fixed in an upright to the wall to allow you to take a shower or a bath. This is an excellent space-saving technique that can be ideal if you haven’t a large amount of floorspace to work with, or even if you simply prefer the look of these facilities.
Do you have enough space for a bathtub? – Following in a similar vein to whether or not you should install an over-bath shower, it’s also very important that you make sure you actually have enough space in your bathroom for a tub. There are minimum size requirements for baths, to ensure they are of the proper dimensions and so can be used for their intended purpose. For a bathtub, you need to make sure you have at least 1.10 meters by 0.70 meter of space available, otherwise we won’t be able to fit your bathtub for you.
What style of bathtub do you want to go for? – You might not think it, but bathtubs have evolved a lot over time based on their design. If you want to go for a vintage look, a clawfoot tub would be ideal, whereas modern bathtubs feature insulating materials to keep the water warm for longer, as well as attractive features such as waterfall taps. You’ll need to have a think about what kind of features you’d like your bathtub to have before you choose the ideal one for you. If you’re at all unsure of which to go for though, or if you only have a vague idea of what you’re looking for at the moment, feel free to get in touch with us for some assistance. We’ll be happy to help!
Think about the energy saving benefits – Many people assume that baths are very energy inefficient now that it’s been discovered that taking a shower rather than a bath can help you to save water, but this isn’t necessarily the case. For example, you can cut the amount of water you use by choosing a reduced-capacity bath. A standard-sized bath can hold around 80 litres, which means you could end up using quite a lot of water even if it’s only halful. However, with a reduced-capacity bath, you can make sure you still enjoy a relaxing soak without having to use too much water.
Make sure you use a reputable installer! – Of course, this is where Conwy Valley Plumbing can help you. We can provide you with the best bathtubs in the North Wales area to give you the pick of the best options. Not only this, but we can fully install and plumb in a bath for you, so you won’t have to do any of the difficult work. Simply choose the bathtub you like the most, or ask us to help you when making your decision if you’re a little unsure, and we’ll take care of everything else.
