The bathtub is one of the most popular luxurious fixtures that you could have in your bathroom. After a long day at work, you would be aching to dip your body in its warm water to help you feel relaxed and comfortable inside and out. This is the reason why people install it in their homes. Not only that, because of its various designs which includes the vintage and antique looks of traditional bathtubs and the sleek and clean effect that modern bathtub gives you, it is the perfect choice for people who have got style and elegance in mind anywhere they go.
Here are some the different types of bathtubs:
- Pedestal tubs - this is a standalone and feetless, oval - shaped tub which uses a different base material than its exterior but is treated to make sure that its looks would match. It usually does not sport holes for different types of faucets but it has a much deeper water level when filled. You could install an optional hand shower for easy usage. It is usually made from cast iron, porcelain or acrylic.
- Drop - in Tubs - this type of bathtub helps you avoid slips due to the fact that you don't have to raise your feet to get out of it or to get in, you only drop in, hence the name. It is mounted in a deck separate from the tub which makes it quite a bit expensive. It utilizes light materials like acrylic, glass and plastic and has optional built - in faucets. It would always be great to install this type of bathtub on the corner of your bathroom to save space and this would be very suitable for sitting down and dipping your feet.
- Claw foot Tubs - the oldest of the group, the design of this type of tub is pretty much traditional, antique in its own rights. It would instantly give your bathroom an ancient feel to it. It would make you feel that the bathtub has been passed down by King David himself or something like that. I already saw one and it was an experience worthy of horror films. Like some weird white - dressed woman would appear out of the tub and grab you. Anyway, it's available in slanted back and straight front styles and is free standing. You could use either wall - mounted faucets or floor mounted faucets and it has a drain hole.
