Vivien Guyot December 1, 2019 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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
