Fanetta Vincent December 2, 2019 Bathtub
Bathtubs are not only about aesthetics, of course. Some bathtub designs are very convenient like a walk-in bathtub. No matter which you decide on, the main goal is to indulge yourself with something pleasant that you really deserve.
Among all the variants available in bathtub design there is one that can be applied to any style you could ever imagine. Whether you want to create something luxuriously Royal or you’re more up to cutting edge modern design, drop-in style is the very right decision for you.
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.
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).
Why hesitate choosing shower or a tub? You can have all in one! The spectrum of hues is quite considerable so you can get exactly what suits you perfectly. Built-in models are one of the most popular. Freestanding tub looks incredibly opulent! It requires more space than traditional ones, but it’s definitely worth it! It will make any bathroom look really lavish.
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.
