Tubs can also be made of fiberglass (reinforced plastic), ideally covered with a material known as ‘gelcoat’. Due to its flexibility, this material can be shaped easily, which is exactly why it is the favorite choice for making whirlpool and airy tubs. The gelcoat, on the other hand, enriches its appearance; and it creates a smooth, shiny surface that is easy to clean and maintain. As flexible as it is, this material is prone to scratches and cracks.
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.
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.
Nowadays range of options for bathtub design is considerable. Every person chooses the best one corresponding to his or her needs. So if you are lucky parents, have a dog, or just like simplicity and practical things you may decide on the alcove tub. Even if it doesn’t look very extravagant or opulent, you still can add some elements into the general design which will create a perfect fusion of chic and performance.
Freestanding tubs are the most sophisticated and luxurious choice you could make: They look amazing wherever you put them; and they can be moved easily in every room where you may need them. This flexibility, however, affects their price; and they become the most expensive tubs you could purchase.
The lighting can make or break the ambiance of any room, and your family bathroom is no exception. An illuminated mirror or a good task lighting above the sink is ideal for early mornings, while a soft light would be perfect for relaxing baths. So consider placing your lights on a dimmer switch so you can have just the right lighting you want whenever you want it.
