Why hesitate choosing shower or a tub? You can have all in one! The spectrum of hues is quite considerable so you can get exactly what suits you perfectly. Built-in models are one of the most popular. Freestanding tub looks incredibly opulent! It requires more space than traditional ones, but it’s definitely worth it! It will make any bathroom look really lavish.
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.
Technology fans could really appreciate a whirlpool tub: this luxurious and sophisticated utility has a jet and a water motor installed, which helps water rotate on relaxation/massage modes. As you can imagine, they are much more expensive than regular tubs; and are used for commercial purposes (residential places and spas), rather than private homes.
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 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).
People with limited abilities sometimes encounter difficulties during everyday situations, but now this problem can be easily resolved. Uncomfortable situations can be avoided if you choose walk-in tub. It looks and works practically in the same way as an ordinary one, but has a door on the side that seals behind a person. This type of tub can also be facilitated with a seat to provide more comfort for the user. This option is a perfect one for those who earlier needed some assistance while bathing, though now can easily go along without any help.
