Vivien Guyot December 1, 2019 Bathtub
Claw-foot bathtubs are the classic bathtubs used for many decades so far. What makes them special and popular are their slopped backs; and the recognizable flat front. In most of the cases, they are produced using acrylic, iron, steel, or porcelain. While they are really classy and good-looking, rounded bathtubs require large and spacious bathrooms. For those lucky enough to own one, rounded bathtubs easily become the focal bathroom point.
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.
Airy tubs are another peak in the progress of technology, which enable you to have a bubbly bath experience like the one spa can offer. They are quite similar to whirlpool tubs, with the main difference that there is a jet that heats air instead of water. A deeper comparison would even show that airy tubs are more sanitary-convenient, because the only thing that can happen to their jets is clogging. If you prefer a cheaper option, we recommend jets that dry the tub after it has been used; rather than those that can heat air inside.
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.
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.
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).
