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.
Composite tub materials are in fact the American Standard’s Americas products and Bootzcast (Bootz industries). These composite materials are specially engineered to form the backing of a tub, whose surface is afterwards enameled to look glossy and smooth. The reason why these materials are being produced is to provide the same durability and heat retention as iron, without making the tub too heavy. Most of the time, composite tubes weight 1/3 of their cast iron counterparts, which is something you should remember if moving some time soon.
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.
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.
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 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.
