Blue and pink bathtubs may have been high-end design decades ago, but now they’re just signs of old, outdated bathrooms. Whether you’re dealing with a color issue like that or discoloration due to wear and tear, there are several ways to change the color of your bathtub. Let’s take a look at some different ways to transform your tub so you can update your bathroom in the future.
The easiest, fastest, and most affordable way to change the color of your bathtub is through bathtub refinishing. Also known as bathtub reglazing, this process uses special primers and compounds to cover your existing tub and tile. You can make it just about any color that you want, and we can even color match other elements of your bathroom. If you choose to combine your bathtub refinishing with tile refinishing, you won’t ever have to worry about cleaning grout lines filled with mold and rust stains. The glazing goes right over the grout to create a smooth, seamless look throughout your bathroom.
Note that bathtub refinishing can save you up to 75% on the cost of bathroom remodeling, leaving you with plenty of extra money to invest in other parts of your home. Contact Maryland Tub and Tile at (410) 255-0323 for a free quote from one of our bathroom remodeling experts.
Another way to change the color of your bathtub is by using a bathtub liner. This is a PVC plastic or acrylic sheet that is molded to fit your existing bathtub. Once the liner is created, it is secured in place with special adhesive designed to lock it in. While this method is still more affordable than bathtub replacement, it is more time consuming than bathtub refinishing. With reglazing, you are guaranteed that the new coloring will fit because it applies directly to the surface of the old glaze. There is a chance that your liner will not fit or will become detached over time, which will cost you even more money.
As a last result, you always have the option to replace your bathtub altogether. This is much more costly than the two options above, but sometimes, it is the only option. We can fix surface cracks and crevices with bathtub refinishing, but major cracks that affect the structural integrity of the bathtub would require a complete replacement. Also, if you want to change the size or shape of your tub, the only way you will be able to do that is with a new unit.
