The bathroom is one of the most used rooms in your home. It’s also one where functionality matters just as much as style. If your tub is chipped or stained, it makes your space look outdated and also means you have to go through the hassle of daily scrubbing in order to keep mold and mildew at bay.
As you look for an affordable way to update your bathroom, you may consider a bathtub liner. While this seems a smart option on the surface, installing a full bathtub replacement offers benefits that a liner does not.
Here are a few things to consider before deciding on a tub liner rather than a tub replacement:
- Hidden Structural Damage: If your tub is old, there is a chance that there is unseen structural damage beneath it. When you replace the tub, it allows this damage to be found and corrected. A liner doesn’t provide such an opportunity, so the damage remains and continues to progress.
- Style Limitations: When you choose a new acrylic tub, the sky is the limit when it comes to style and tub placement within your bathroom. You can even choose a walk-in tub to provide enhanced accessibility. You have no such options with a tub liner.
- Comfort: When you install a liner in your existing tub, it causes the interior of the tub to become slightly narrower, which decreases comfort.
- Ease of Maintenance: We install acrylic tubs with a nonporous surface that is easy to keep fresh and clean without daily scrubbing.
Don’t think that you have to go with a liner if your need a fast fix. Bath Planet of Denver and Nebraska can install your new acrylic bathtub in just one day. Our certified installers will arrive in the morning with everything they need to complete the job by the time they leave that afternoon.
You might be wondering about cost. We install durable, stylish replacement tubs that cost much less than a traditional renovation. That means you can enjoy a fast, budget-friendly bathtub makeover while still enjoying all of the benefits a full tub replacement, rather than a tub liner, provides.
For style, convenience, and long-term durability, replacement tubs are a superior option to tub liners.
