Laurel Bertrand December 5, 2019 Bathtub
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.
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.
We have to admit that walk in bathtubs for two people with bubbles and lot of foam placed in the middle of the tub is amazing, and if it is possible with an unforgettable view near the ocean or between mountains would be just perfect for everyone of us. In this collection you can find a variety of bathtubs with different and special designs most of them with very interesting concepts, varying from stone bathtubs to transparent ones.
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.
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.
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.
