Chantal Carpentier January 10, 2020 Bathtub
Platform tubs are excellent for deck structures, as they usually come with their own enclosure; and they are commonly adjacent to showers. Air baths and whirlpools can really benefit from them, because the deck structure provides enough space to hide plumbing fixtures, pumps, and any sort of hardware which needs to be accessible, but not seen.
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.
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.
We dedicate much time to work, family, kids and other everyday things. Don’t we deserve some time for relaxation and self-pampering at the end of the day? Of course, we do. It’s only up to you which bathtub design you choose: a charming clawfoot tub with brass feet, a flat-bottom tub in the center of the room, a garden tub to enjoy the view of your impeccable flower beds or a tub with air and water jets which will help to relax your muscles and ease the tension.
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.
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.
