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.
When it comes to a family bathroom, less is more. As one of the busiest rooms in the house, your bathroom needs to be well-organized so that it doesn’t turn into a war zone after a morning’s use. To help you design a bathroom that looks and works properly for all members of your household, we’ve compiled a list of some of the best family bathroom ideas below.
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.
People with limited abilities sometimes encounter difficulties during everyday situations, but now this problem can be easily resolved. Uncomfortable situations can be avoided if you choose walk-in tub. It looks and works practically in the same way as an ordinary one, but has a door on the side that seals behind a person. This type of tub can also be facilitated with a seat to provide more comfort for the user. This option is a perfect one for those who earlier needed some assistance while bathing, though now can easily go along without any help.
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.
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).
