When you upgrade your bathroom it’s time to think about whether you need a shower or a tub to accommodate your needs. Do you have children or older adults living with you? Do you like to bathe pets in your tub after a walk in the park? What type of schedule do you have and how much time do you allot each day for bathing? All of these questions come into play when you are trying to decide which type of bathing appliance you will use. Take a look at some of the ideas below as you work toward making your decision.
What type of space do you have in your bathroom and would a shower or bath fit more comfortably? If you have a small bathroom you may only want to have a shower which will meet your bathing needs quite well. If you have more space, a bath tub may be exactly what you need especially if you have a great deal of stress in your life. Nothing beats sitting in a tub of warm water letting your muscles relax after a stressful day. Your choice will ultimately depend on the amount of space that you have and how you prefer to bathe.
If you have young children they will most likely prefer a bath to a shower. They will enjoy the time that they get to spend with you as you make shapes from soap bubbles and tell them stories as they learn good bathing habits. Be sure to look at the materials that the tub is made from, the warranty that the tub has, and how easy it will be for your children to get into and out of the tub.
If you sometimes like to take a shower and other times relax in a bath you may want to consider the Carron Shower Bath which will give you the best of both worlds. It will meet the needs that you have for any particular mood and can also provide you with the opportunity to bathe both children and pets easily. You’ll want to make sure that the surfaces surrounding your shower bath are safe and can withstand water that will surely collect on the surfaces. If you use tile, try to find a textured type that helps to prevent slips and falls. You can also use mats with rubber backing that won’t move when you or your children exit the shower bath. This is an excellent choice if you have a growing family; children will grow to enjoy showers because they are faster. And you can still enjoy your leisurely bath when things at work have become overwhelming. Accessorise your bathroom accordingly and enjoy the versatility of your tub, shower, or shower bath.
