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.
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.
The best side of walk-in tubs is safety: they are usually accompanied by safety doors, non-slip floors; or mount bars. This is exactly why they are recommended to people with special needs. Another advantage is that they come in all heights, shapes, or designs: you could easily ‘blend’ them inside your alcove/tile setting; or use them as drop-in tubs.
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.
Just think of a clawfoot tub, which can bring you back to Victorian times with all their opulence and royal glossiness. Such an option may seem to many of us quite obsolete and old fashioned, but this tub creates a very elegant general look. It also goes without saying that finish and fixtures of the feet are only up to you.
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.
