Thinking about a bathroom remodel? There’s more to consider than faucet handles and wall color. (Although you should absolutely consider those things.) But if you want the most bang for your buck – or just the most personal satisfaction – from your renovation, ask yourself whether you need a new bathtub.
Not sure? We’ve got five reasons, via the Times Square Chronicles, to upgrade your tub.
One of the worst problems that you can face with your bathtub is leakage. This is because this issue is difficult to fix and it can cause mold and mildew.
A leaky tub can also lead to floor damage, and costly future repairs.
Cracks, holes, and chips in your bathtub can cause lots of damage to your property and negatively affects your bathing experience.
While a damaged bathtub can be repaired, the finish may not match exactly and will be easier to re-damage.
Mold and Mildew
Apart from making your tub looking unappealing and unattractive, mold and mildew can also cause allergic reactions, depression, respiratory problems, and nervous system disorders.
If you have mold, you may already have a leak or other damage you were unaware of. Additionally, mold and mildew can cause cosmetic problems like staining.
Stains on your bathtub look awful and they are also breeding grounds for harmful bacteria and germs. Furthermore, it is difficult for anyone to enjoy and relax during their bath time when the bathtub looks dirty and unsightly.
Stubborn stains, that won’t fade with bleaching and scrubbing, can also indicate that the surface of your bathtub has been compromised, which will allow bacteria to breed.
Along with these other, practical reasons to replace your bathtub, keep in mind the most important.
You Want It
Having a new bathtub will enhance your bathing experience whenever you use it.
And since your bathroom should be your sanctuary, we think that’s reason enough.
