If you want something vintage, you may prefer a slipper tub. You can also add some kind of niche so that everything necessary will be within arm’s reach. Fill niche with bottles of your favorite salts and bath foam. It may seem quite regular at the first glance, but you can spruce it up by adding sliding glass door or tiling the wall behind with vibrant colors.
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.
Platform tubs are excellent for deck structures, as they usually come with their own enclosure; and they are commonly adjacent to showers. Air baths and whirlpools can really benefit from them, because the deck structure provides enough space to hide plumbing fixtures, pumps, and any sort of hardware which needs to be accessible, but not seen.
If you want your bathroom look really sophisticated and chic think of a free-standing tub. Due to the fact it needs no support from outside you can place it right in the middle of your bathroom as if it’s some work of art. You may also complement this lavish look with bright feet finish like brass or silver. This way you’ll create romantic look close to Victorian times, but you may also choose a flat-bottom tub, which looks very modern and state-of-the-art. A variety of shapes is numerous.
Everyday routine is quite exhausting, at the end of the day you come home, have a shower and go to sleep. It’s like a film with quite an expected outcome, but there’s still something you can change to suit yourself. When the day is over you may feel as a queen or a king from the eighteenth century if you relax in a poised claw-foot tub, especially if the colors of your bathroom are really royal.
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.
