Things You Should Know About Mobile Home Tubs Before Choosing
Your bathroom is one of the most important places in your home. It is where you freshen up after a long day at work or in the morning before going out to your normal day-to-day activities. To increase the level of comfort and improve the relaxation experience you get from your bathroom, especially for a mobile home owner, you may need to do a remodeling project at some point. This may include replacing or installing new bathtubs, and you want to get it right when choosing a bathtub option that will work best for you. When choosing mobile home tubs, it is important to have some knowledge about the options available in order to determine the most appropriate choice for you. There are various options in terms of shapes, designs, styles, and materials of constructions. In order to have the knowledge it takes to make the right pick, here are some things you should know about mobile home tubs before going shopping.
Choosing Tubs by Installation Style and Shape
Alcove Tubs: Alcove tubs are traditional skirted bathtubs that fit into an alcove. However, mobile home alcove tubs differ a bit from the regular bathtub options designed for regular homes, especially in terms of size.
Corner Tubs: Just like the name goes, corner tubs are bathtubs that are fitted onto a corner or sorts to save space. They provide an elegant look and feel in the bathroom as well. Just like alcove tubs, corner tubs for regular homes may not fit in most mobile home bathrooms. This calls for buying the bathtub from a mobile home parts store to avoid inconveniences and extra re-fitting expenses.
Oval Tubs: Unlike the two other options mentioned above in terms of size, oval tubs for mobile homes are slightly larger than those designed for site-built ordinary homes. They offer a great curb appeal and are stunningly stylish as well. These can be a great option if you like it more artistic and creative.
Choosing Tubs by Design and Look
Whirlpool Tubs: Just like the name suggests, whirlpool tubs are composed of water inlets from the bottom surface or the sides, which powerfully inject water into the tub as you take your bath. They are a perfect pick for luxurious comfort levels and are good especially for people with neck or back problems. They are also available in a wide variety of shapes, styles, and sizes.
Clawfoot Tubs: Clawfoot tubs are some of the most adorable bathtub options available. They have a design with legs or structures that look like the claw feet of a bird. This is a popular modern tub design that can add a great deal of luxury in your bathroom while improving curb appeal. They’re available in various shapes and sizes to suit and fit in your mobile home bathroom easily.
Cloud Tubs: Cloud tubs are fairly new in the market, but are gaining popularity pretty fast. They are a good example of freestanding bathtubs and look awesome regardless of your bathroom size.
Choosing Tubs by Material Type
After considering the available shapes and designs, you will need to decide on a bathtub option to install for your mobile home bathroom in terms of material.
Acrylic: Often reinforced with fiberglass, acrylic tubs are great in that they are lightweight, more heat resistant if insulated properly, and they exist in a wide range of options to choose from in terms of style and shape. However, acrylic tubs tend to be costlier than most other options and may be more prone to scratching.
Fiberglass: fiberglass options are often reinforced with wood or metal and coated with a polyester gel layer. Fiberglass bathtubs are more affordable as compared to other options such as cast iron. However, they tend to scratch easily, and choice varieties are rather fewer as compared to other options.
Enameled Cast Iron or Steel: the other common option to look for is either cast iron or steel tubs, which have an enamel coating or finish.
Marble: Marble tubs are some of the most common options available. They’re made from a refined mixture of limestone and polyester gel. Marble tubs are available in many different styles, colors, and provide a great stylish look. However, marble tubs tend to scratch easily and may be costlier than other alternatives. Other common options in terms of material include solid surface tubs and cast polymer, among others.

How Mobile Home Parks Are the Best Strategy For Affordable Housing in Commercial Real Estate
By Frank Rolfe Mobile home parks have higher investment returns than apartments for two main reasons. The first is that they are priced to allow a significantly higher return.

Mobile Home Furnaces - Choose the Right One For Your Home
By John Mowatt Furnaces which are made for use in mobile or manufactured homes have a number of differences from ordinary home furnaces. It is essential to purchase a heating system which is right for your particular mobile home. This must be a system which has been designed specifically for use in mobile homes or manufactured homes. The air ducts are smaller in mobile homes, and corners are sharp and tight. As a result air does not flow as freely or as easily as it does in an ordinary home. [READ FULL ARTICLE]
