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.
Japanese people appreciate comfort and quality, that’s why bathing for them is a real ritual and is definitely not about 3-minute quick shower. The main distinguishing feature of Japanese tub is the depth of the basin, which is unlikely to seem too small. You don’t necessarily need to visit the spa in order to relax. You can simply install a whirlpool tub in your own bathroom and relax whenever you like. You can also choose a tub with additional water and air jets.
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.
Technology fans could really appreciate a whirlpool tub: this luxurious and sophisticated utility has a jet and a water motor installed, which helps water rotate on relaxation/massage modes. As you can imagine, they are much more expensive than regular tubs; and are used for commercial purposes (residential places and spas), rather than private homes.
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.
Airy tubs are another peak in the progress of technology, which enable you to have a bubbly bath experience like the one spa can offer. They are quite similar to whirlpool tubs, with the main difference that there is a jet that heats air instead of water. A deeper comparison would even show that airy tubs are more sanitary-convenient, because the only thing that can happen to their jets is clogging. If you prefer a cheaper option, we recommend jets that dry the tub after it has been used; rather than those that can heat air inside.
