When remodeling a bathroom the tub can often be a sticking point. The bathtub takes up a large part of the typical bathroom space and it can set the mood and style of the room. It can also be quite a challenge to replace.
To make this project easier it pays to do a little homework and take your time. Before buying a tub take some time to carefully consider all of the options and limitations. It doesn't do any good to get a great deal on a tub that is the wrong type for your bathroom or for your needs.
