Are you thinking in a bathtub for the children’s bathroom? Acrylic or fiberglass are the best choices as materials if you are thinking of something for the kids. With whirlpool bathtubs, there are more possibilities of accidents and of breaking some devices so that option does not seem the best for them. Acrylic bathtubs are much more economical than steel bathtubs, besides being safer. On the other hand, if you are thinking of giving more value to your home, you can add these small artifacts since the possibility of moving these days is a bit stuck.
Acrylic bathtubs are easier to install than their heavier cast iron counterparts or models with whirlpool jets. Although beautiful, cast iron tubs are extremely heavy, and you have to make sure that your bathroom can support their weight before you bring one home. If you are putting your tub in a second story bathroom, you do not want one this heavy to lug upstairs either. If your kids are going to be using the bathtub and it is made of light acrylic or fiberglass, it is much easier to get up the stairs, and you will not have the sharper edges of a cast iron model.
Whirlpool tubs tend to be much heavier than standard acrylic bathtubs as well, and when you have kids, you do not need all the massage jets, headrest pillows, etc. that come with a whirlpool bathtub. Kids may enjoy spending time in a whirlpool tub on occasion for fun, but a daily session is not something they will appreciate. Kids do not care about a fancy bathtub; they usually just plop down in the bathtub and start playing with their toys or the bubbles. Whirlpool bathtubs are also harder to install than acrylic bathtubs with all their bells and whistles, which just is not necessary when it is a bathing space for your kids. If you want a bathtub that is easy to clean, safe, and inexpensive, then acrylic or fiberglass is the material you need.
So if you want to upgrade your kids’ bathroom but do not want to spend a fortune, then acrylic bathtubs are the way to go. You will save money and hassle, and your new tub will make your bathroom look great!
Be sure to take an acrylic bathtub of unique styling, but with the characteristics that simplify alcove installation and prevention from the possibility of water damage behind the wall. There are models designed for one person bathing or more. It is up to you!
