Amongst this entire confusion one must do some research and know about the various types available. This article will contain all the information a first time buyer needs to know about bathtubs.

Cast Iron Bathtubs: these bath tubs are extremely heavy and costly. If one considers antiques then the price is even higher. If one already has cast iron bath tubs in their bathroom then rather getting a new one, they can try renovating their old ones. These forms of bath tubs signify elegance and style.

Modern Bathtubs: Modern bath tubs are very light made of steel, plastic and acrylic. These bath tubs comes in many different shapes and designs like the oval shape, rectangular, square etc. they have matching accessories like matching taps, panels and color patterns.

Circular Bathtubs: this is a breathtaking view, but in order to have a circular bathtub one must have a very big bath room to set the tub in the first place.

Space Saving Bathtubs: these forms of bath tubs utilize every space efficiently, the towel racks are attached to the wall, and there are drawers with the bathtub to keep bath supplies at hand. These bathtubs take the shape of the room in order to minimize wastage of space and can thus take up any shape. The interior can be designed according to choice.

Regular Bathtubs: most common type of bathtubs is the rectangular regular bathtubs available everywhere. These are very much inexpensive. If one is not very keen on bathing for hours and relaxing in the bathroom making it a home spa then they should go for these types of bathtubs as they are efficient and cheap.

No matter what, designing a bathroom is the most important element in designing a house. Therefore the bathroom interiors including the bathtub is a very important feature to decide upon. Whatever the design may be it should definitely depend upon what the purchase purpose is for.  E.g. if one wishes to relax and unwind in the bathtub for long hours after work then they should inevitably go for the circular bathtubs. Then again if one fancies the bath tubs of the past and wishes to have the type that their great grandfather had been using then they should go for cast iron bath tubs.

Selection of the bathtub is as important as the selection of the interiors of the bathtub. The color selection is also very important, a young girl may want to have hot pink bathtubs where as a sophisticated lady may want to have a light cream color for her bathtub. Therefore the decision is not as easy as it may seems but is sure very much fascinating and fun.
