How do you plan to use your bathtub?
This answer determines whether a cheap, ordinary bathtub is enough, or you need a tub more luxurious. A standard soaking tub is only filled with water, while Whirlpool or air bathtub has a jet or channel to provide massage air.
How much space do you have?
Before falling in love with a particular type of tub, you need know what your bathroom can accommodate. A standard tub is typically 150 cm long, 50 cm wide, and 60cm deep, but many other sizes and shapes are available. To determine how large the tub can be, take careful measurements of your bathroom. Make a note of where the drain is located in the floor to make sure it works with your chosen tub's design. Also, some bathtubs don't allow for the installation of a shower, so check before buying if that's a must-have feature for your family.
Are there any special installation considerations?
If you're considering a jetted bathtub, you'll need to plan for the pump, air switch, and electric timer. Many pumps fit within the tub unit, but some manufacturers have remote-location pumps that can be placed up to 30cm from the bathtub and hidden in a closet or vanity cabinet. The air switch, which is nonelectric, may be located on the tub unit. Plan on installing the electric timer a safe distance—at least 30cm—away from the tub to satisfy personal requirements
Tub's height and depth
First of all, consider the height of the bathtub relative to the floor. A plug-in bathtub can be installed on the floor, which makes it easier to step in and save space. On the other hand, a more advanced bathtub surround may require a raised tub. There must be a plan before you make the final decision. Second, consider the depth of the bathtub. For example, deeper bathtubs suitable for soaking are typically 45cm to 55cm deep, depending on their style.
