On the other hand, cast iron bathtubs are designed to last for a long period of time but they are pricey as well. However, nothing seems to beat marble and wood bathtubs even if these bathtubs are difficult to keep clean and maintain. You will have to consider your topmost priorities such as looks, costs, strength and durability in order to choose a material accordingly. Acrylic bathtubs can provide you with various shapes and styles that can help you meet all the needs of your bathroom remodel. Also, they are pretty light and you can go for larger designs as well without worrying that you are placing too much pressure and strain on your bathroom floor.
