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.
Japanese people appreciate comfort and quality, that’s why bathing for them is a real ritual and is definitely not about 3-minute quick shower. The main distinguishing feature of Japanese tub is the depth of the basin, which is unlikely to seem too small. You don’t necessarily need to visit the spa in order to relax. You can simply install a whirlpool tub in your own bathroom and relax whenever you like. You can also choose a tub with additional water and air jets.
Drop-in tubs are not really tubs. The term refers to tub shells, adjusted inside a solid enclosure matching the rest of the bathrooms decor (colors, tiles, or cabinets). Have in mind that you’ll have to purchase both items separately (the tub and the enclosure), which can cost much more than buying a regular bathtub.
The name of Roman tub originates from Rome, nothing extra is hidden behind this name. This type of tub is unique due to faucet mounting. Faucets aren’t installed on the side of the bath but attached to the deck. One more distinguishing feature is that Roman bathtubs are usually larger than traditional ones you can find in most American homes. So there’s enough place for two, especially if you want a long relaxing soak after hard working week.
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.
Soaking tubs belong to the category of most popular tubes; relatively modest, with nothing to offer but depth and suitability. But isn’t depth what many of us expect from their tubs? Aren’t we supposed to soak inside after a stressful day? Besides, soaking tubs can stand alone; or be installed like alcove or drop-in tubs. It all depends on the space you have available.
