You have to admit that there isn’t anything much better than taking a deep soak in a bath tub after a long day at work; it’s the perfect place to get away from it all and relax. And if you have small children, a tub is an absolute essential! There is a variety of tubs to choose from when completing a bathroom remodel such as clawfoot, soaking or garden tubs and free standing tubs. Made from a multitude of materials, you should consider where you plan to install it, how often it will be used and how difficult the upkeep or cleaning will be. From fiberglass to cast iron and a huge price range to choose from, if you do your research in advance you are sure to find the one perfect for your needs.
Recently showers have become the focal point of a master bedroom en suite or bath remodeling project. Showers range in size from small rectangular enclosures to very expansive glass enclosures or tiled walk-in wet rooms. Take into consideration the size of the space you have before choosing a shower enclosure because it is one of those items that can not only be costly, but not easy to move once installed.
Installing a tub or shower is usually best left up to a plumbing professional, especially in the event any pipes need to be added or moved.
