Hettie Delorme December 1, 2019 Bathtub
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.
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.
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.
The truth is: you chose a tub instead of a shower, and you don’t have too many possibilities left to save space. However, you could opt for a shower-tub combo (where the tub belongs to the shower unit, or plays the role of a shower unit itself); or to purchase a tub which suits the dimensions you have disposable; and could at the same time be used for other purposes (storage, for instance).
Those of you who’re really into timeless design, usually pursue a unique bathroom look with stone tubs in all colors and natural patterns. Who could blame you for it? Both granite and marble tubs are magnificent and solid; as long as you have an equally solid budget to purchase them. The place were wonderful things happen, the place were everything becomes possible even if it’s just a dream is the bathtub: a perfect combination between glamor and comfort. If you have a little bathroom you need to get yourself a corner bathtub and don’t feel bad about the space because with a futuristic faucet the old appearance can be turned into the most luxury bathroom you’ve ever seen.
