Let's start with the form of the bath-tub which can be chosen. Classical roll-top bath-tub is a traditional choice of a majority of buyers.

Bath-tubs overview

Now let's talk about the materials of the bath-tub. Today you can find in the markets bath-tubs produced of three main kinds of materials: cast iron, steel and acryl. Each of them has its own advantages and disadvantages. Let’s consider them.


Cast iron bath-tubs


Highest heating capacity - cast iron perfectly accumulates heat of hot water, and then gives up it for a long time as the cooling;
High resistibility and mechanical stability;
Working lifespan - 50 years or more.

Heavy weight and difficulties in the transportation and installation;
Brittle outer enamel, vulnerable to damage;
Steel bath-tubs


Medium weight and easy transportation;
Good heating capacity;
Working lifespan - 30-40 years.

Cools faster than cast iron bath-tub;
Produces a specific hum when filled with water.
Acrylic bath-tubs


Plasticity of the material;
Wide choice of designs and unusual forms;
Wide choice of sizes and colors.

brittleness of the material;
Short working lifespan;
Rather expensive.

So only the customer decides what kind of bath-tubshould be chosen for the bathroom. If you look for a bath-tubfor a full due, it is better to choose a cast-iron, which, in spite of the heavy weight and cumbersome, will be of service for you and your children for many years. Difficulties in installation are caused bynecessity to carry out all plumbing works: changing of pipes, laying new tile, waterproofing repairs before the installation of a bath-tub.

If you look for a middle ground between cost and reliability of the bath-tub, choose a steel model, which will also be of service for you for a long time, and at the same time there will be no problem in transportation and installation. You can choose not only classical white bath-tubbut also beige, pink, silver and others.

If your goal is design renovations in the bathroom, you should choose a beautiful acrylic bath-tub with unusual shapes and colors. This material, despite its brittleness, allows designers to develop a variety of interesting forms. If you want to buy something quite unusual, you can search for a bath-tub of non-standard materials: wood, glass, ceramics. Such models are quite expensive, but they fit perfectly in the bathroom interior.
