Why Bathtub Refinishing is a Great Idea

Is taking a bath becoming more of a chore than a relaxing experience? Then you should consider remodeling your bathroom. The only problem is ‘remodeling’ sounds expensive and you may be working on a tight budget. Fear not for there is much you can do to turn your bathroom into your own little private spa. You can start by getting rid of that old shower curtain and replace it with a new one in a color you actually like, installing a full-length mirror to give the illusion of more space, repainting the walls, replacing the old rugs and refinishing the bathtub.

The stains and chips from many years of use definitely make you cringe at the site of your bathtub. Some people cannot even remember the last time they took a bubble bath in their bathtubs simply because of how old it looks. Bathtub refinishing is a great way to restore the smooth, clean and shiny appearance of the tub without spending money on a new one.

Bathtub refinishing saves you money since you are not buying a new one or pulling up the old one from the bathroom floor. Replacing your old bathtub is not just a matter of buying a new tub but also new drainage fixtures and tiles to replace the ones you will remove around the area. It also takes more people working to replace it, which will definitely cost you more money in labor charges.

Bathtub refinishing usually takes about a day or two. Once the refinishing is over, you just need to give it a few hours to dry off and you can start reusing your bathtub again. Replacing a bathtub will take a lot of hours, noise and a bunch of people in and out of your home which may be a little bit uncomfortable.

Refinishing your bathtub does not mean that you cannot have something new in your bathroom. You can finally get the bathtub in the color you always wanted during refinishing. The restoration technician will tint the bathtub coating in the color that you want. You can also install new fixtures such as taps and shower heads which are less expensive than replacing the whole thing. Refinishing helps you maintain the unique character of your bathtub with a new twist. Find a great refinishing company to work with, tell them exactly what you want and you can transform your bathroom.
