4 Crucial Questions to Ask When Buying a New Whirlpool Bath
There's simply never been a better time to become a whirlpool bath owner. What was once the exclusive domain of the rich and famous is now available to everyone, and at a price that may just surprise you. But before you rush off and dip your toes in a brand new whirlpool bath, there are a few questions you may just want to ask first. From whirlpool bath placement to the aesthetics, here’s how to ensure you get the best tub for your money.
#1: What style of whirlpool bath are you looking for?
If you haven’t explored the available whirlpool bath options for a while, you may be surprised at how much is on offer. It’s no longer a simple matter of the conventional rectangular tub, and this should factor into your decision-making process. Which one you choose will often come down to your budget as well as your bathroom’s aesthetic, but you can select from a huge range of styles. To name but a few, you can explore L-shaped whirlpool baths, corner whirlpool baths, Japanese style tubs, and even freestanding baths.
#2: Which material and finish is right for your bathroom?
Another question you’ll want to consider is the material of the whirlpool bath’s shell as well as the finish of the bath panels if applicable. In terms of the shell, you’ll be able to choose from options like Carronite, which is an exclusively developed hard-wearing material by Carron. Alternatively, many premium whirlpool baths are made from durable high-gloss acrylic. In any case, you can also choose from a wide array of bath panels, including both acrylic options and the natural-style wooden finishes too.
#3: What are your “must-have” mod-con features?
We live in a world driven by technology, and this is now something that factors into your choice of whirlpool bath. Have you ever considered having a mood-enhancing set of underwater lights in your new whirlpool bath? Or perhaps you’d like to experience room-filling sound with your favourite music being played via the whirlpool bath itself. All of this is now possible thanks to the many Sound and Vision options available for modern whirlpool baths.
#4: What is the maximum whirlpool bath size that’ll fit your bathroom?
Perhaps the most important question you can ask yourself is about the dimensions of your new whirlpool bath and the space you have available. We’d always recommend that you measure your bathroom twice so that you have an accurate picture of what will fit, and exactly where in the room. From there, it’s a simple matter of finding the whirlpool bath that best complements your available bathroom space. You’ll find that most of the whirlpool baths we offer here at The Whirlpool Bath Shop are available in multiple sizes for the ultimate in choice and flexibility.
