How to Install Wood Trim Around a Bathtub

You don’t have to hire a contractor if you want to remodel a bathroom or add wood trim around it to create your own look. It will only take a few common tools and patience. Installing wood trim around a bathtub is the most difficult. This involves making the right corner cuts and attaching the trim to the tub. However, anyone can do the job.

Step 1

Take measurements around the bathtub to determine its length. These measurements should be recorded along with a brief description so that you can remember where each measurement is.

Step 2

Wear safety glasses Mark the measurements and place the molding on a mitersaw at a 45-degree angle. Your molding should be cut to fit the measurements around the bathtub.

Step 3

Each piece of wood molding should be placed in its own place so that each 45-degree angle is correctly aligned and forms a 90 degree angle.

Step 4

Allow the mold to acclimate for 24hrs.

Step 5

Apply a bead construction adhesive to the tub and wood molding. Apply a thin layer of construction adhesive to the tub and wall. Then, tack the wood mold into place. Before you use the tub, let it dry overnight or as long as the manufacturer directs.
