Adriene Klein December 30, 2019 Bathtub
When the working week finishes, Friday comes and the only thing you’re dreaming about is relaxation, there’s nothing better, than a good, hot bath with foam. Some critics may say, that you can also use a shower, but such things are incomparable! Suds with glitters and pieces of sweet-scented foam flying above the surface of the water, it’s almost like a spa, but you’re at home and can enjoy it as long as you wish!
Tubs can also be made of fiberglass (reinforced plastic), ideally covered with a material known as ‘gelcoat’. Due to its flexibility, this material can be shaped easily, which is exactly why it is the favorite choice for making whirlpool and airy tubs. The gelcoat, on the other hand, enriches its appearance; and it creates a smooth, shiny surface that is easy to clean and maintain. As flexible as it is, this material is prone to scratches and cracks.
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.
Choosing material is much easier than choosing a type. Once you have determined the type, you’ll have no more than two/three choices to go through. We’ll present you with the most common materials, together with their advantages/disadvantages; and suitability for different types of tubs.
Everyday routine is quite exhausting, at the end of the day you come home, have a shower and go to sleep. It’s like a film with quite an expected outcome, but there’s still something you can change to suit yourself. When the day is over you may feel as a queen or a king from the eighteenth century if you relax in a poised claw-foot tub, especially if the colors of your bathroom are really royal.
