We dedicate much time to work, family, kids and other everyday things. Don’t we deserve some time for relaxation and self-pampering at the end of the day? Of course, we do. It’s only up to you which bathtub design you choose: a charming clawfoot tub with brass feet, a flat-bottom tub in the center of the room, a garden tub to enjoy the view of your impeccable flower beds or a tub with air and water jets which will help to relax your muscles and ease the tension.
Greek people definitely knew the ropes in hydrotherapy and self-pampering. That’s why the Greek tub is the real embodiment of pleasure. Similar to Japanese, Greek tubs are also very deep, especially in comparison with traditional ones. Endless bathtub ideas offer you many options to suit your needs perfectly. You may choose luxury or comfort, functionality or extravagance, or sometimes even all in one!
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.
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.
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.
