When it comes to a family bathroom, less is more. As one of the busiest rooms in the house, your bathroom needs to be well-organized so that it doesn’t turn into a war zone after a morning’s use. To help you design a bathroom that looks and works properly for all members of your household, we’ve compiled a list of some of the best family bathroom ideas below.
Alcove tubs are also known as the recessed tubs. We are discussing rectangular tubs which are remodeled in order to fit the three walls of your bathroom. People opt for this solution when they want to replace their standard tubs; mostly because it is an affordable solution: look carefully at the drain location when facing the accessible side; and estimate whether you’d need a right-hand or a left-hand installation to match your plumbing fixtures.
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.
Composite tub materials are in fact the American Standard’s Americas products and Bootzcast (Bootz industries). These composite materials are specially engineered to form the backing of a tub, whose surface is afterwards enameled to look glossy and smooth. The reason why these materials are being produced is to provide the same durability and heat retention as iron, without making the tub too heavy. Most of the time, composite tubes weight 1/3 of their cast iron counterparts, which is something you should remember if moving some time soon.
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.
