If you want your bathroom look really sophisticated and chic think of a free-standing tub. Due to the fact it needs no support from outside you can place it right in the middle of your bathroom as if it’s some work of art. You may also complement this lavish look with bright feet finish like brass or silver. This way you’ll create romantic look close to Victorian times, but you may also choose a flat-bottom tub, which looks very modern and state-of-the-art. A variety of shapes is numerous.
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.
Claw-foot bathtubs are the classic bathtubs used for many decades so far. What makes them special and popular are their slopped backs; and the recognizable flat front. In most of the cases, they are produced using acrylic, iron, steel, or porcelain. While they are really classy and good-looking, rounded bathtubs require large and spacious bathrooms. For those lucky enough to own one, rounded bathtubs easily become the focal bathroom point.
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.
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.
We dedicate much time to work, family, kids and other everyday things. Don’t we deserve some time for relaxation and self-pampering at the end of the day? Of course, we do. It’s only up to you which bathtub design you choose: a charming clawfoot tub with brass feet, a flat-bottom tub in the center of the room, a garden tub to enjoy the view of your impeccable flower beds or a tub with air and water jets which will help to relax your muscles and ease the tension.
