How to Choose a Bathtub
One of the first decisions you will need to make in your bathroom remodel is choosing a bathtub that fits the design, but also meets your needs for optimal relaxation. Make sure you consider the material so you can ensure the water maintains the right temperature. Consider length to make sure you fit in the bathtub comfortably. And don't forget to have the tub waste at the right height so your tub holds enough water when you are bathing.
Based on your bathroom's space for your bathtub and your needs, this will determine the bathtub type that you will need.
After you determine the type, then you will determine the dimensions you will need.
Length x Width x Height (sometimes height is referred to as depth)
Once you have determined the type of bathtub you need, then you will want to consider the different types of features.
You will want to educate yourself on the material options for bathtubs.
The material can affect the price, weight and durability of the bathtub.
Complete Your Bathtub
A bathtub is more than just the tub. I also want to help you find the right faucet, the right shower door if you need it and attempt to answer other questions that may come up as you choose the perfect bathtub.
You will need to choose the right faucet for your bathtub. If you are doing a shower bathtub combo, you will get a combo faucet with shower head. If you just need a bathtub faucet, you can choose from deck mounted, wall mounted or floor mounted.

Do not forget about these accessories to complete your entire bathing experience. While some are just for comfort, other accessories are really important to make sure you have when you purchase a tub.
