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.
The Royal bathroom is only one of many possible options you can choose among. Probably, you would like a bathroom with some modern functions. Bathroom tub ideas have almost no limits today. We live in a very fast moving world with all its conveniences and advantages, nevertheless, it sometimes feels like our everyday routine lacks something significant. The regular bathtub will definitely look ok, but why don’t we jazz its look up.
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.
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.
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).
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.
