Soaking tubs belong to the category of most popular tubes; relatively modest, with nothing to offer but depth and suitability. But isn’t depth what many of us expect from their tubs? Aren’t we supposed to soak inside after a stressful day? Besides, soaking tubs can stand alone; or be installed like alcove or drop-in tubs. It all depends on the space you have available.
The best side of walk-in tubs is safety: they are usually accompanied by safety doors, non-slip floors; or mount bars. This is exactly why they are recommended to people with special needs. Another advantage is that they come in all heights, shapes, or designs: you could easily ‘blend’ them inside your alcove/tile setting; or use them as drop-in tubs.
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.
If you’re a lucky one who has a window in a bathroom, you may place the tub right below it in the spotlight. Even if tub itself is tiled in the same color as the rest of the room it will still look very elegant. You can enjoy the look of your backyard or flower beds while indulging yourself with the hot bathroom shimmering with suds if you choose under mount type of tub. Designs may vary from stone to wood panels. You can also install faucets in the middle so that there’s enough place for two.
Drop-in tubs are not really tubs. The term refers to tub shells, adjusted inside a solid enclosure matching the rest of the bathrooms decor (colors, tiles, or cabinets). Have in mind that you’ll have to purchase both items separately (the tub and the enclosure), which can cost much more than buying a regular bathtub.
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).
