Robinetta Lemaire December 30, 2019 Bathtub
When the working week finishes, Friday comes and the only thing you’re dreaming about is relaxation, there’s nothing better, than a good, hot bath with foam. Some critics may say, that you can also use a shower, but such things are incomparable! Suds with glitters and pieces of sweet-scented foam flying above the surface of the water, it’s almost like a spa, but you’re at home and can enjoy it as long as you wish!
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.
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.
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.
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.
One more option is cast iron tub that will add something vintage to the general look of the bathroom especially if you choose a free standing one. Originally garden bathtubs were popular in France placed right in the gardens in order to let one’s eyes feast on the flowers and blossom around. Nowadays people retained this idea in large bathtubs placed right below the big window. If you want to preserve this look of tranquility in the bathroom, add a few plants and make sure there’s enough light.
