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.
Airy tubs are another peak in the progress of technology, which enable you to have a bubbly bath experience like the one spa can offer. They are quite similar to whirlpool tubs, with the main difference that there is a jet that heats air instead of water. A deeper comparison would even show that airy tubs are more sanitary-convenient, because the only thing that can happen to their jets is clogging. If you prefer a cheaper option, we recommend jets that dry the tub after it has been used; rather than those that can heat air inside.
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.
If you’re a lucky one who has a window in a bathroom, you may place the tub right below it in the spotlight. Even if tub itself is tiled in the same color as the rest of the room it will still look very elegant. You can enjoy the look of your backyard or flower beds while indulging yourself with the hot bathroom shimmering with suds if you choose under mount type of tub. Designs may vary from stone to wood panels. You can also install faucets in the middle so that there’s enough place for two.
