If you are planning to remodel your bathroom, try to come up with a design that will provide your bathroom with a unique ambiance. Modern cast-iron tubs can remind you of the “good ole days” and provide additional comfort because of its unique qualities. Your favorite spot for relaxing will be your bathroom because of its new up to date look. Putting a cast iron bathtub into your home can be pricey, but once you have it the cost and effort will have been well worth it.
Usually, a recently made cast-iron bathtub will be coated with enamel on the inside. The bathtub is cast by pouring molten iron into a prepared mold. This gives it its unique shape once it cools and hardens. Older cast iron bathtubs were fire polished, to give them vibrant colors and smoother finishes. The pure iron bathtubs last for ages and are usually strong.
These bathtubs have the unexpected advantage that they keep bathwater warmer for a longer time because they retain heat very well. You’ll love being able to relax in a luxurious bath for as long as you’d like without the water getting too cold.
Thanks to the thick-walls of cast iron bathtubs they are heavy but in high fashion with an everlasting classic appeal. But, since they are heavy, watch the stability of your bathroom floor. The tub will be heavy, so if the floor isn’t solid enough to support its weight, you’ll need to reinforce the floor before the tub can be installed.
There are no lighter materials that can give you the durable that lasts like a cast iron bathtub. One of the advantages of the premium quality bathtubs is the enamel lining, which is resistant to scratches. These tubs are extremely damage resistant.
This is a one-time investment that will raise the value of your home, both financially and aesthetically!
