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.
Among all the variants available in bathtub design there is one that can be applied to any style you could ever imagine. Whether you want to create something luxuriously Royal or you’re more up to cutting edge modern design, drop-in style is the very right decision for you.
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 reason why many people choose corner-fit tubs is that they apparently save space. There is a good reason to use the word ‘apparently’-corner tubs ‘swallow’ a lot of your floor space; and they are much more beautiful than functional. Still, why not using those two magnificent corner windows in your bathroom; and installing a corner tub from where you could enjoy a breathtaking view?
