Bathroom Remodel: Bathtub Questions
Hey folks. We are planning a small-bathroom remodel and already picked out the flooring, vanity and sink, lighting, toilet and other accessories. The last piece of the puzzle is what to do with the bathtub.
We currently have a flimsy one-piece fiberglass tub and wall that we definitely need to replace. Everyone in our family that has done a bathroom remodel all went with the "steel-enamel tub with tile walls" combination. After perusing our local Home Depot, we found a two-piece tub and wall kit made out of something called "Vikrell", which is trademarked by Sterling/Kohler.
We want this to be the last time we remodel this bathroom. I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with this material and can comment on its quality and durability. I was impressed with the floor model at how easy it was to clean, its sturdiness (definitely not the same kind of fiberglass tub we currently have) and its price. However, we aren't 100% sure if the Vikrell tub can withstand the test of time.
