The Ultimate Guide to Choosing a Whirlpool Bathtub for Two
Here’s a question: how do you like to take a bath? Are you a lone-wolf solo bather who enjoys the peace and solitude that only a deep soak can bring? If so, this ultimate guide might not be for you. If, on the other hand, you love the thought of enjoying a whirlpool bath for two, this guide will be right up your alley. From picking the right tub to choosing the perfect mood music, we’ve brought together everything you could possibly need to know about buying a whirlpool bath fit for two.
So let’s dive in together, shall we?
Part I: Setting the stage for a whirlpool bathtub for two
As with any form of home improvement – especially something as significant as a new whirlpool bath – you need to ensure you have enough space. This goes double (pun intended) for whirlpool baths made for two, for the simple reason that they’re naturally a lot larger than standard tubs. With this in mind, the first thing you should do before you even look at a single bathtub is to take some measurements in your bathroom.
If you already have a bathtub, it’s a good idea to measure it, then double those dimensions to ensure you have enough space available. It’s not quite the case that a two-person whirlpool bath is exactly double the size of a single, but it’s a good rule of thumb. One great tip is to always take your measurements in millimetres, as this is the unit of measurement used to describe the baths at The Whirlpool Bath Shop. Once you have the dimensions of your available space all measured up, you’ll know exactly which bathtubs will fit your bathroom, and which won’t – making the search for a tub that much easier.
Part II: Budgeting for a two-person whirlpool bath
Because purchasing a new bath is something of a rare experience, it makes perfect sense that you’d want to get the most for your money. That said, you also don’t want to spend over the odds. One of the great things about whirlpool baths today is that they’re available to suit a wide array of budgets. For example, here at The Whirlpool Bath Shop, you’ll find double-ended whirlpool baths starting at under £400 and going upwards of £4000. This differential is great for you as a buyer, because there’s plenty of choice, but we know it can be tough to decide exactly how much to spent. So how do you best budget for the purchase of a whirlpool bath for two? Well, there are a few different factors at play, each of which will affect your decision on how much to spend.
One big factor to consider when budgeting for a new tub is how much you’ll use the bath. Will you be dipping in and out on a weekly basis, or will you only use it once in a blue moon? Every time you use your new bath, the better value it becomes, so if you’re a heavy bather, you might want to splash out a little more. Another consideration is the experience you’d like to have. It’s all well and good to go all out and opt for all the bells and whistles, but if you don’t need a super-powerful multi-jet system with underwater lights, why pay for one? It’s a good idea to write a list of your specific needs and wants out of a whirlpool bath, then refer to this when browsing the available tubs – it’ll help you refine your options.
Part III: Picking the perfect size, shape, and design
Now that you’ve got the available space locked down, and you’ve considered your budget, it’s time for the fun part – actually picking out a two-person whirlpool bath!
