Nowadays, bathtubs are not considered luxury items. They are common features in nearly all homes. This means that a relaxing and luxurious soak in the tub does not have to be something you can only do on a luxury holiday or in deluxe hotel rooms. It’s actually an essential part of your bathroom that you enjoy using after a long day of work or play.
Most homes today have multiple bathtubs. The style and design of each tub will depend on the individual needs of the homeowners and their preferences. This also depends on the budget available to them. There are many options available, which can sometimes confuse buyers.
You’ll want every detail to reflect your style and taste if you are in charge of building your dream home. It is important to research the different types of bathtubs on the market. A clear picture will help you not only understand what you want, but also will give you information about the prerequisite conditions that must be met before you can install it.
There are four types of bathtubs available today. Each category is further broken down based on the type of tubs within that category. These four categories include built-in bathtubs (soaking bathtubs), freestanding bathtubs (freestanding bathtubs) and special solid surface bathtub.
Built-in bathtubs are most popular types of tubs. There are two types: Drop-In and Alcove. The Alcove is the most popular and can be accessed only from one side (the front). Drop-in bathtubs can be found on decks and require that you climb down to access. These bathtubs have faucets that are located on the deck.
Soaking tubs are, as the name suggests, designed for soaking. They are deeper than regular bathtubs and can be soaked right up to the chin. They are not equipped with shower attachments or jets as they are intended for soaking. Roman bathtubs are floor-mounted soakers. Greek bathtubs are smaller and can only be used to soak.
Freestanding bathtubs cannot be attached, sunken, or mounted on the ground. These bathtubs have faucets that can be attached to walls, floors or sides. There are two types of freestanding bathtubs: pedestal and clawfoot.
There are many special bathtubs available, including whirlpool bathtubs and massage bathtubs. These bathtubs can also be adapted for those with disabilities or older people. Multiple jets create a relaxing and enjoyable experience in whirlpool bathtubs. Massage bathtubs have holes at the bottom and sides to allow hot water bubbles to pass through.
