I am almost driven mad trying to decide what bathtub to choose for our small bathroom. I am going to be restricted by 60X30 measurements, in an alcove. The tub we have now is cast iron and I carelessly scratched it, while having a stool set up in it while painting the ceiling. I was assuming we'd replace it, so no problem, but since I started researching choices, I am wondering if I can just fix the scratches, as it doesn't seem like my choices are going to be much better with those dimensions. Can you fix the scratches????
Assuming we WILL replace it, I really wanted a deeper tub, to at least have something going for the small space. My preference would be to have cast iron again, but there seems to be very few choices. I've read about Bellwether by Kohler, but it seems to have issues with needing a longer faucet size and drain size which ups the costs and someone read that they thought it was "substandard" for Kohler. I am afraid of acrylic and Americast not holding up well. We want this tub to last and NOT have to replace it later. I am so confused by what decision to make that I'm beginning to have stomachaches about making the wrong decision. Can you experts help me decide which bathtub would be best (or is there a way to fix the scratches I made and just keep my old 14" deep cast iron?).Thanks so much for any advice!
