The days of pastel pink and blue bathtubs and sinks are over, yet you’ll find homes in which they still exist, and sometimes, even the tub and the sink will be different colors to each other! Old bathroom fixtures look very tired and drab with their yellowed whites and their general disrepair, not to mention the scratches, rust spots and chipped enamel. Replacing them is one way to go but in many cases, the expense is prohibitive and why should you buy new fixtures if the old ones just need resurfacing?
You can prevent the huge headache that comes from not sealing grout in a shower by doing that very thing as soon as the grout in your newly installed shower tile has dried. In addition, wiping down the walls and glass of your shower each and every time you use it will also prevent the mold, mildew, and mineral deposits everyone dislikes so much from forming.
Ceramic tile bath tubs are a wonderful way to enhance the beauty of your house and bathroom, while effectively protecting your walls from damage related to moisture. Your bathroom is a breeding ground for mold, mildew, and germs so it is very important that you do as much as you can to prevent these nasty critters from invading your bathroom and taking over.
One of the best ways to prevent the negative effects from mold is to stop moisture in its tracks. By adding ceramic tile bath tubs with proper grouting, you can rest assured that your ceramic tile can withstand the constant wear and tear that non- stop moisture can create.
Double ended tubs offer an arresting symmetrical appeal to the visual presence of a bathroom. Neck rests at both ends accommodate bathing for two, and highlights like clawfoot and lion’s paw accents lend a romantic air to this type of high-end bathroom accoutrement.
You can find double ended tubs in sizes ranging from 60 inches up to 72 inches and in both acrylic and cast iron. Cast iron double ended tubs are covered in a porcelain veneer and both acrylic and cast iron tubs feature a centered faucet placed in the middle of the tub so that either bather may comfortably access it.
There is no better material for bathroom countertops than tile. Not only is tile gorgeous and gleaming it is also very sanitary and clean. If you have tile in your bathroom or you are considering using it you will be happy to note that it does not take a lot of work to keep tile looking its best. As long as your bathroom countertops are sealed well, they will last and last and stay looking like new, even after years of use.
