Considering this, what is the best type of bathtub to buy?
- Plastic: Made of either fiberglass or acrylic, plastic bathtubs offer the greatest design flexibility because they can be molded into many shapes.
- Enameled steel: Formed steel bathtubs with a porcelain-enamel coating are the least expensive tubs.
Secondly, what is better porcelain or acrylic tubs? Acrylic surfaces are less resistant to scratches than porcelain, and acrylic can be repaired much more easily than porcelain. Acrylic is warmer to the touch than porcelain, and acrylic tubs retain the heat of the bath water in them longer than iron or steel tubs do.
Similarly, you may ask, what is the most durable bathtub?
Cast iron tubs are made by pouring molten iron into a mold of the desired shape, then smoothing it and coating it with a thick layer of enamel. It's probably the most durable tub available, and the finish is resistant to chipping, scratching and denting, as well as most types of chemicals.
How do I choose a good bathtub?
Choose the right size based on the space you have and your goals for a new bathtub. And, if your old one was a little cramped, this is the time to up size, if you have the space. Standard tubs tend to be around 60 inches long and 32 inches wide.
