Getting Started


Getting started means getting clear on all your options Bathrooms vary greatly from house to house, and the options for bathtubs and showers can be even more wide ranging. Among the factors to consider before choosing a particular bath product are your space, your family’s needs and your budget.

Wading through all the choices

A bathtub can be great if you have kids or if you could benefit from the relaxation offered by jetted hydrotherapy. If you have the luxury of space, a bathtub and a separate shower can be ideal. Aquatic showers come in a variety of styles and sizes. For smaller bathrooms, a tub-shower combination might be the best answer.

Focusing on your family’s needs

The stylish design of an Aquatic bathtub or shower may be the first thing to catch your eye, but it’s also important to think about how your family will use your new bath product. Key points to keep in mind include:

Ease of mobility. If you’re coming into your senior years, or you’re living with a parent or other family member who’s over the age of 60, you may want to look into bath products that can be fitted with grab bars and other accessible features as the need arises.

Aquatic offers a variety of attractive bath products from our Everyday Series that give you this flexibility, as well as a complete line of stylish accessible showers and tub-showers that are fully configured and ready for immediate use.

Safety for children. If you’ll be bathing kids, you may want to avoid extra-deep bathtubs and smooth-tile floor surfaces that can become slippery when wet. Many products from the Aquatic Everyday Series are designed with practical features that make bathing a comfortable experience for all.

Getting the most value from your purchase. Depending on your budget, you may also want to consider materials that offer a high-end look at an affordable price. For instance, Aquatic offers shower products with a durable subway tile design that mirrors the style of more expensive ceramic options.

Have fun during the process

Picking out tubs and showers for your bath space can be enjoyable, as long as you have the right people behind you.
