Tub Refinishing – a fast and inexpensive way to update your bathroom

by Roger on August 3, 2009

Every so often, our homes, like our clothes or hair, are in need of a makeover. However, redecorating or remodeling a house can be much more expensive and much more work than getting a new hairdo. Fortunately, there are plenty of fast and easy ways to update your decor or re-do a room without breaking your budget.

One room that homeowners often struggle with is the bathroom. While many of us dream of coming home from a hard day at work and taking a long, hot shower or unwinding in a relaxing bubble bath, the truth is that most of us are dissatisfied with the state of our bathtubs and other bathroom fixtures.

Since the tub is such a large and permanent bathroom fixture, you may assume that you’re stuck with an outdated or ugly tub until you’ve saved up enough money to hire contractors to remodel the entire bathroom. In actuality, though, it’s quite easy to refinish a tub or sink, and you can have a tub or shower stall that looks like new for a fraction of the cost!

Tub refinishing is a process where the surface of your tub can be repaired and “re-glazed”, so you can update your color/decor scheme or simply brighten and clean a dingy, stained old tub. Refinishing a bathtub can be a tedious process if you take the time to do it properly, and it requires special skills and tools – but thankfully, it’s a process that you can easily hire a professional tub refinisher to perform, and the cost is surprisingly affordable. Whether you have a standard bathtub or a fiberglass bathtub, an expert bathtub refinsher can repair and refinish the tub in just a couple of hours, and your bathtub will be ready for use approximately 24 hours after it’s been refinished.

When having your tub refinished, you might also want to consider having your shower stall, sink, or bathroom counter refinished at the same time. It’s an affordable and fast way to update your bathroom, and can really freshen up your home. For only a little bit more time and effort, you can easily paint the walls and buy new accessories and voila! You can have a brand-new, picture-perfect bathroom in one weekend, and for under $500!
