Vivien Guyot December 1, 2019 Bathtub
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.
One more option is cast iron tub that will add something vintage to the general look of the bathroom especially if you choose a free standing one. Originally garden bathtubs were popular in France placed right in the gardens in order to let one’s eyes feast on the flowers and blossom around. Nowadays people retained this idea in large bathtubs placed right below the big window. If you want to preserve this look of tranquility in the bathroom, add a few plants and make sure there’s enough light.
If you want to move to another house, or simply jazz up an existing one, the bathroom is one of the most important things to think of. No matter whether you live in a huge castle or just in a cozy little house, the bathroom is something very personal and you should make sure every single thing in this room corresponds to your individual needs and design reflects your personality on the whole. Some people may say it’s just a place to get clean yourself up, but, honestly, it’s rather a place where you never pretend being somebody else and where everything should be reposeful.
Everyday routine is quite exhausting, at the end of the day you come home, have a shower and go to sleep. It’s like a film with quite an expected outcome, but there’s still something you can change to suit yourself. When the day is over you may feel as a queen or a king from the eighteenth century if you relax in a poised claw-foot tub, especially if the colors of your bathroom are really royal.
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.
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.
