Pierrette Giraud December 2, 2019 Bathtub
The reason why many people choose corner-fit tubs is that they apparently save space. There is a good reason to use the word ‘apparently’-corner tubs ‘swallow’ a lot of your floor space; and they are much more beautiful than functional. Still, why not using those two magnificent corner windows in your bathroom; and installing a corner tub from where you could enjoy a breathtaking view?
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).
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 wonder how would a combination of comfort luxury and functionality look like, we have the answer for you! Want to get all in one – decide on Jacuzzi bathtub. It can be decorated with wood, freestanding or performed in alcove design, retaining all the functions mentioned above. One more important thing about this type of tub: it will suit perfectly people who suffer from problems with joints and bones, as you can relax in Jacuzzi as if you’re at the spa!
Just think of a clawfoot tub, which can bring you back to Victorian times with all their opulence and royal glossiness. Such an option may seem to many of us quite obsolete and old fashioned, but this tub creates a very elegant general look. It also goes without saying that finish and fixtures of the feet are only up to you.
The lighting can make or break the ambiance of any room, and your family bathroom is no exception. An illuminated mirror or a good task lighting above the sink is ideal for early mornings, while a soft light would be perfect for relaxing baths. So consider placing your lights on a dimmer switch so you can have just the right lighting you want whenever you want it.
