After an exhausting day at work, all we want to do is treat ourselves to a nice warm bath. However, you don’t want a stained or rusted bathtub to spoil the mood and ruin it for you. The good news is that you don’t have to always invest in a full-fledged bathroom renovation projection. We recommend getting custom-fitted, acrylic bathtub liners or molded inserts installed over the top of your old tub.
Here’s why it’s a great idea.
Ease of Installation
Technically, bathtub liners are a lot easier to install compared to installing tiles. Although you can work around the process yourself (if you have some construction skills), we still recommend hiring a professional company to get the job done.
Other than the liner, you need to install a wall surround as well. These are either available in the form of three-piece or five-piece units. If your bathroom walls are uneven, you’d need five-piece units. These are a bit trickier to install and are best catered to by a professional service.
Maintenance and Care
Compared to tiled walls, bathtub walls are much easier to care for. To make the process, we recommend getting tub surrounds that look similar to the rest of the tiles. This way, you don’t have to go through the hassle of cleaning the tile grout regularly. Acrylic bathtub liners are particularly non-porous. All it takes to wash them is a solution of soap and water. Liners also have a non-skid surface, which makes it safer for you to wash them on your own. You don’t even need a fancy soap. The regular dishwashing soap would do.
Save Money and Time
If there’s absolutely nothing wrong with your bathtub, you don’t need to go through the time-intensive hassle of redesigning the tub altogether. Bathroom liners are a quicker and more convenient option if you want to cover up an old stained tile but don’t want to mess with the tub. You can even get the bathroom liners installed on the walls alone.
Although bathroom liners aren’t entirely cheap, you won’t have to pay for the labor and construction materials needed to restore the entire bathroom. Liners are ideally one-third of the cost of a total bathroom remodeling project. Invest in a service that offers a warranty. This way, the liners may stay with you for a few decades!
