Choosing The Right Bathtub


Choosing The Right Bathtub For The House

Bathtubs come in a range of shapes and sizes, and homeowners need to make sure that they are ready to choose a bathtub for each bathroom in a style befitting the layout. The bathtubs come in so many styles that it is easy for the homeowner to choose something that matches the room perfectly. When homeowners are making these choices, they need to consider all the items below.

The Color

Most people are used to their bathtubs being white or a shade of beige. However, bathtubs can come in any color the homeowner prefers. Some people need a soft pink or blue to match their room. Other people need a black or grey tub that looks better in their modern bathroom.

As in the photo above, the tub can be white, but to give it a modern vibe, there can be a darker color that surrounds the tub to set it apart.

The Shape

Every bathtub can be designed in a shape that works for the room. Some bathtubs are shaped in a Gothic style, but other bathtubs are much more sleek. The shape of the bathtub can match the light fixtures in the room, the style of the shower and even the shape of the room.

The bathroom must make sense in the overall design of the house, and the homeowner cannot make sense of the room unless they have the right tub.

The Size

There are many bathtubs that come in small sizes. People who live in studio apartments or small homes can use a small bathtub to fit in their tiny bathroom. Also, people can order large bathtubs that will fit well in their large bathroom.

The size of the bathroom dictates the size of the bathtub, and it is wise for the homeowner to take this into consideration before buying.

The Fixtures

Every tub can come with a set of fixtures that matches the style of the room. Every bathroom comes together when the fixtures are complete, and the fixtures should match the other fixtures in the room. A cohesive design begins and ends with these fixture choices.

When people are planning their bathroom, they need to make sure that they are using the suggestions above. These suggestions will point people in the direction of the right bathtub. They can get the right color, style and size for their home. And enjoy their new bathtub for many years to come.

  1. I got a new bathtub last year and I love it. You've shared some beautiful examples.

  2. I had to chuckle when you mentioned color. Yep! back in 76 we built a house and I wanted chocolate brown tub, toilet & sinks. I would not recommend, water spots, rings oh my! I polished and polished to keep them look good. Nope never having color again, give me WHITE!!! All I can say I wasn't say when the house was sold.

  3. I have always wanted a claw foot tub...maybe someday. These are all wonderful, with exception of the last one as it's a little too modern for my taste but it's really cool looking. My niece would LOVE it! When I was a little girl we had a bathtub that was a big square (I still remember taking baths with my sister). One corner was cut into the tub that was a seat so the tub was L shaped. It was really neat and for the time very stylish...nobody else had anything like it. I don't think I've ever seen one since, in fact. Weird, but I have good childhood memories of playing in that bathtub amd taking my Barbies swimming! lol

  4. I love taking long soaks in a bath tub. However, the house I bought 10 months ago only has a walk in shower.

  5. I love claw foot tubs, although I couldn't get up out of one now. As I don't think I will ever own a house again, I guess I just have to be happy with what I get. Love looking at these photos, though. xo Laura

  6. What nice examples Brenda..The previous owners here removed the tub and put in a shower..oh how I miss soaking in a tub..we keep talking about changing it back but have never gotten around to doing it..

  7. I'm currently trying to find the perfect bathtub for my Cottage and when I consider its shape, I don't only have design in mind, I also have well-being. I like to read in my bath and some of the very square modern ones don't look comfortable at all for your back.
