Bailee Gauthier January 1, 2020 Bathtub
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 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).
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.
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.
Choosing material is much easier than choosing a type. Once you have determined the type, you’ll have no more than two/three choices to go through. We’ll present you with the most common materials, together with their advantages/disadvantages; and suitability for different types of tubs.
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.
