If you want your bathroom look really sophisticated and chic think of a free-standing tub. Due to the fact it needs no support from outside you can place it right in the middle of your bathroom as if it’s some work of art. You may also complement this lavish look with bright feet finish like brass or silver. This way you’ll create romantic look close to Victorian times, but you may also choose a flat-bottom tub, which looks very modern and state-of-the-art. A variety of shapes is numerous.
The truth is: you chose a tub instead of a shower, and you don’t have too many possibilities left to save space. However, you could opt for a shower-tub combo (where the tub belongs to the shower unit, or plays the role of a shower unit itself); or to purchase a tub which suits the dimensions you have disposable; and could at the same time be used for other purposes (storage, for instance).
Alcove tubs are also known as the recessed tubs. We are discussing rectangular tubs which are remodeled in order to fit the three walls of your bathroom. People opt for this solution when they want to replace their standard tubs; mostly because it is an affordable solution: look carefully at the drain location when facing the accessible side; and estimate whether you’d need a right-hand or a left-hand installation to match your plumbing fixtures.
Just think of a clawfoot tub, which can bring you back to Victorian times with all their opulence and royal glossiness. Such an option may seem to many of us quite obsolete and old fashioned, but this tub creates a very elegant general look. It also goes without saying that finish and fixtures of the feet are only up to you.
In terms of function, under-mount tubs are similar to the platform ones. In aesthetic terms, on the other hand, there is an enormous difference. Under-mount tubs are covered with stone/tile tops, designed to match the rest of the bathroom’s decor. Besides, the tops are solid and supported from underneath, unlike platform decks that literally hang in the air.
Composite tub materials are in fact the American Standard’s Americas products and Bootzcast (Bootz industries). These composite materials are specially engineered to form the backing of a tub, whose surface is afterwards enameled to look glossy and smooth. The reason why these materials are being produced is to provide the same durability and heat retention as iron, without making the tub too heavy. Most of the time, composite tubes weight 1/3 of their cast iron counterparts, which is something you should remember if moving some time soon.
