Vivien Guyot December 1, 2019 Bathtub
Designing a bathroom for the modern family, busy and chaotic as they are, requires careful planning because getting the balance right is tricky. If you focus too much on the little ones’ needs, grumpy adults will have to shower hunched over among an army of rubber ducks, and if you focus too little on the children, they won’t be able to reach anything, or worse, they’ll hurt themselves trying.
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.
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.
If you wonder how would a combination of comfort luxury and functionality look like, we have the answer for you! Want to get all in one – decide on Jacuzzi bathtub. It can be decorated with wood, freestanding or performed in alcove design, retaining all the functions mentioned above. One more important thing about this type of tub: it will suit perfectly people who suffer from problems with joints and bones, as you can relax in Jacuzzi as if you’re at the spa!
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).
The name of Roman tub originates from Rome, nothing extra is hidden behind this name. This type of tub is unique due to faucet mounting. Faucets aren’t installed on the side of the bath but attached to the deck. One more distinguishing feature is that Roman bathtubs are usually larger than traditional ones you can find in most American homes. So there’s enough place for two, especially if you want a long relaxing soak after hard working week.
