Shopping Tips for Bath Trays
What is the material used to make your bath tray of choice? While shopping online, you will come across bath trays made from four main types of materials – plastic, wood, bamboo, and metal. Even though plastic is cheap and naturally water-resistant, it is not as durable as wood, bamboo, and metal are. Metal is susceptible to rust, while wood and bamboo can rot if they are not protected with varnish or a coat of lacquer. Buy a tray that will serve you for long.
Do you have a 40-inch wide bathtub? A premium bath tray with a 30-inch platform will not serve you well. Instead, look for a tray that is at least 40-inches long. Models with adjustable handles are also ideal because of their adaptability to most types of bathtubs.
