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.
Due to the peculiarities of installation and construction, you can implement deep soak tub into all types of interior and decorate space around this tub in many various ways with small tiles shining or matte-finished, you can also add one or two steps near the tub.
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.
Drop-in tubs are not really tubs. The term refers to tub shells, adjusted inside a solid enclosure matching the rest of the bathrooms decor (colors, tiles, or cabinets). Have in mind that you’ll have to purchase both items separately (the tub and the enclosure), which can cost much more than buying a regular bathtub.
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.
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.
