For a lot of homeowners, upgrading a bathroom means removing shower enclosures and installing a bathtub. It does make for a more enjoyable experience overall. But what type of bathtub should you get? One of the options available to you is a corner tub.
What Is a Corner Tub?
Corner tubs come in a range of shapes and sizes but they are typically triangular in shape, designed to be anchored by walls on two sides. They are nestled into corners, hence their name, allowing them to help you make the most of the available space you have.
Who Should Get It?
You should get a corner tub instead of acrylic shower walls when you’re pressed for bathroom space. A corner tub’s rounder shape lets it more easily fit in a smaller area, all while still able to comfortably accommodate multiple people.
However, a corner tub is also great for those who don’t have to worry about space constraints. Convert a corner tub into a hot tub or jacuzzi and you’ll elevate your bathing experience even more. This makes corner tubs ideal in master bathrooms.
What to Keep in Mind
- Size – Smaller corner tubs average 48 inches wide and 48 inches long, with heights anywhere from 19 to 20 inches. Larger models, on the other hand, can go up to 72 inches in width and length.
- Lifespan – Different factors affect how long a corner tub lasts but low averages put lifespans at 15 to 20 years. Reglazing or refinishing can add 10 to 15 more years to a corner tub’s lifespan, depending on material integrity.
- Maintenance – The level of upkeep a corner tub requires will depend on the material it’s made from. For example, acrylic is non-porous, making it great at resisting stains over time.
