How to Choose the Right Shower/Bathtub Style for Your Home

Although a shower is the fastest way to get yourself clean, a lot of people enjoy taking their time and soaking in the bathtub. Not only is it a relaxing alternative, but it can become a meditative place to find solace. Bathtubs nowadays come in a lot of different styles, have a lot of different shapes, and they come with a lot of different features.

Finding the right shower/bath combination, although not difficult, may take you some time as you will need to figure out whether you have enough room for a two piece, or if you will need to go with a combination shower/tub unit. If you do decide to go with the unit, you will end up lowering your ecological footprint and increasing your home’s resale value.

The Advantage of Acrylic Shower Bases
When choosing a one-piece unit for your shower/bath combination, you will want to get an acrylic shower base. An acrylic shower base can match any finish, this includes: porcelain and china fixtures. Plus, the shower bases will have easy to clean high-gloss surfaces, and will feel solid under your feet.

What makes these shower bases so great is that you can have them with a center drain, grip material, and even seating, to truly make your one-piece unit relaxing. All shower bases are pre-levelled, leak-free, and come with a three-layer lamination process. Plus, they are scratch-resistant and come in a large variety of colors.

One-piece units also come with customizable options, like shelving, modern colors, choice of fixtures, and even glass shower doors. If you do go ahead with the glass shower doors, you will create the illusion that your bathroom has more space than it actually does. Although you can get prefab units, it is important to leave the installation to the professionals as the configuration of one-piece units does require advanced skills.
