Installation Considerations of Bathtub

Updated:2013-01-23 17:29:44
Before purchasing a new tub, it is necessary for you to consider a number of physical issues, such as how much room you have, how big you want your bathtub to be, where the drain needs to be located, do you want shower door, wall and surrounds and more. You'll also want to take a close look at your décor and determine what color and style best complement your design scheme. If the bathtub is used on a daily basis for a number of people, including children and pets, you'll want to select a material that will stand the test of time. Larger bathtubs are ideal for sitting and soaking while smaller tubs are good for quick cleanup in smaller bathrooms. Bathtubs can require a great deal of work to install and tend to last for many years, so make sure your new tub has the style and features you want both now and in the foreseeable future.

Installation Considerations: If you're replacing an old bathtub and don't want to do any major bathroom remodeling, you may be somewhat limited in your selection of a new unit. If, however, you're completely overhauling the bathroom or building a new house, you'll have the freedom to install just about any type of bathtub you want. Measure carefully to make sure there is sufficient room. Standard tubs usually have inside measurements around 5' long, 30" wide and 14" to 16" high and exterior measurements between 5' and 6' long and 32" to 60" wide. Some bathtubs are designed to accommodate two people simultaneously while others are made for a single individual. Tubs may be positioned against a wall, in a corner or even in the middle of the bathroom.
1.    Lie down in a tub before purchasing to make sure it feels comfortable
2.    Not all tubs allow for the installation of a shower
3.    Be sure your water heater can generate enough hot water to fill your tub
4.    The floor underneath heavy tubs may need to be reinforced
5.    Choose from a variety of colors such as white, cream, blue, green, pink and more
6.    Determine whether the drain and spout need to be on the left or right.
