I've purchased a new home from a developer. The home hasn't been built yet. I went to the interior design specialist chosen by the developer to make selections, e.g., floors, countertops, etc. I told them that I wanted a larger bathtub installed. They said there were no options in that category. I contact the developer and requested that I be offered the option of installing a larger bathtub. They claimed they contacted corporate and that this is not an option.
There's room in the plans to fit a larger tub. Since I'm paying handsomely for my new home this seems like a reasonable expectation. How do I negotiate this.
Side note: there's a therapeutic reason why this tub is necessary. It's not just for show.
