What type of bathtub do you choose when remodeling?
I am going to have my bathroom remodeled. Currently, my bathtub is enameled steel. The glass door looks old and needs to be replaced. Since enameled steel chips easily, it would be better to have the bathtub replaced as well, which is at least 10 years old. My contractor said it would be better to choose an acrylic bathtub, since it looks more beautiful, and holds heat well. Enameled steel bathtub chips easily.
We went to home depot, and he suggested a bathtub of poly composite (acrylic) material. I don't know if the acrylic are more prone to scratch or stain than enameled steel. I once in a while dye my hair.
What type of bathtub do you choose when remodeling your bathroom? Any suggestion or sharing of experience is greatly appreciated.
