    Default Modification advice please - for our bathroom

    Well I literally can not take any more walls out of our bathroom now so I am going to have to start to put stuff back.

    We have been looking at baths and have found that they are either acrylic or pressed steel. Are there any major advantages to either or is it one of one thing and one of the other?

    Sorry for the boring DIY question but I have been putting this off but now running out of excuses.

    Cheers,
    Andy

    pressed steel are cheaper and can rust if you chip the paint. They also flex a lot more than plastic. They are also cold to the touch until they warm up with the water, but they also lose the heat faster too.

    Plastic or acrylic is the next step up and has better insulation properties and dont flex as much. They also wont rust is chipped , but you pay more.
