Bathtub Refinishing Versus a New Tub
Rub-a-dub-dub you need a new tub! What to do? If every time you walk into your bathroom you are immediately taken back by your bathtub’s disgusting state of affairs, than perhaps you should consider buying a new tub. If “cleanliness is next to Godliness”, then your bathtub is preventing you from having your own little slice of heaven!
Sure, you could just refinish your old tub but that would take countless hours of backbreaking labor, and by time all the costs are factored in you may just wish you had bought a new bathtub in the first place. Bathtub refinishing can be a lengthy process with glossing, dipping, sanding etc. Isn’t time you got rid of that eyesore all together? Refinishing your bathtub with acrylic liners is just about the worst thing you could do. Acrylic liners simply mask the problems that plague your tub in the first place.
With bathtub refinishing, your objective is to take your old tub and give it a revamping. Instead, why not take your old tub and upgrade to the bathtub of your dreams? A new bathtub is not only an investment in the way your bathroom looks but it is also an investment in your health. Hot baths have been proven to not only raise your white blood cell count, but have also proven to have therapeutic and stress reliving abilities. A good modern bathtub refinishing can return your old tub to its previous state, but odds are that if your tub needs refinishing, then it is probably time for a newer model that better meets your needs.
Choosing a new tub can be more difficult than meets the eye. Things to consider are depth, width, and style. Also you might take into account the reason for your new tub, whether it will be for work or more for play and relaxation. If a quick dip and scrub is all you’re looking for, then a more traditional bathtub might be up your alley. However, if urbanity is what you seek, than perhaps a newer model with more features is better suited to your tastes. Lastly are the vintage models, the style and grace of the past that takes you out of the hustle and bustle of everyday life and into a state of relaxation, even if only for a moment.
