Choosing the Right Bathtub can ‘make or break’ the overall appearance of your bathroom. Bathtubs need to respond to specific requirements (size, financial capacity, etc); and appear beautiful and stylish at the same time. Most people undermine the ‘How to Choose a Bathtub’ rules, mostly because they are unaware of the possibilities they have. The truth is: there is a wide range of styles and designs to choose from!
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.
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.
Everyday routine is quite exhausting, at the end of the day you come home, have a shower and go to sleep. It’s like a film with quite an expected outcome, but there’s still something you can change to suit yourself. When the day is over you may feel as a queen or a king from the eighteenth century if you relax in a poised claw-foot tub, especially if the colors of your bathroom are really royal.
The name of Roman tub originates from Rome, nothing extra is hidden behind this name. This type of tub is unique due to faucet mounting. Faucets aren’t installed on the side of the bath but attached to the deck. One more distinguishing feature is that Roman bathtubs are usually larger than traditional ones you can find in most American homes. So there’s enough place for two, especially if you want a long relaxing soak after hard working week.
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.
