The bathroom is the only place in every home which is purely meant for cleaning and de-stressing yourself. A good bath drains away all the negativity and weariness. It has become a famous proverb that “the greatest ideas come to you in the bathroom”. In that case shouldn’t you be providing the best bathroom for yourself?  But the irony is that while constructing homes, the bathroom always tends to get a smaller area as compared to the other rooms. It’s the story of every home unless you are very high on budget.

A large bathroom will be able to appease you because you can furnish it with every bathroom accessory you desire. But what if you have a small area? Well, the answer is that you will have to let go of the unnecessary desires and invest intelligently for some strong durable utility accessories that are needed. For example the bathtub. Yes! Having a bathtub in a small bathroom can easily provide you with the much-needed detox cleaning therapy. Now, since you agree on the point of getting a new bathtub, you should do your homework before going out and purchasing any bathtub which looks modern and sophisticated.

Bathtubs come in various shapes and sizes. You need to have a good idea of the dimensions of the different bathtubs that you can buy to suit yourself and also your bathroom or you would end up spending money on a big bathtub which occupies all the area in the bathroom.

Here’s a guide to buying the perfect bathtub to suit your needs.

The most common shapes that the bathtubs come in are: rectangular, oval and triangular.

The rectangular bathtub is the most original and traditional form.

The oval-shaped bath is simply a makeover of the former one to add a tad bit of design.

The other most common shape is the triangular or corner bathtub. The triangular shape gives more room for you to lounge in the bathroom.
