Bathtubs can bring to mind enjoying a relaxing bath after a stressful day at work or with the kids.
A soothing warm bath can help make the stresses go away, relax the muscles and sooth the soul. Bath time is also enjoyable to the small kids that get to play with their toys.
There are so many ways to enjoy a bathtub including getting a new bathtub that has bubbling jets. For the folks that have special needs, there are walk in tubs, grab bars and other safety features that allow virtually anyone to still enjoy a bath.
Although most people these days prefer to take showers rather than baths, the bathtub is definitely still a much needed option in most homes. A bathtub can also be an expression of style. Some of the older bathtubs that are know as the claw foot or clawfoot tubs were made of cast iron and porcelain.
The same look can now be achieved with newer models that are made of modern materials of acrylic or fiberglass. At the end of the day, it's all about enjoying the comforts of your home, so whatever you prefer can be installed depending on your budget and space available.
If you are limited for space and are not crazy about any bathtub option, you can always decide to remodel and have a walk in shower installed.
