Bath Tubs - Bathroom Remodeling Advice
Turn your bathroom into a getaway
Although many people today think a tub is no longer necessary if you have a shower , don't underestimate the power of the right bath tub to take your bathroom from just an ordinary space to a relaxing retreat that is the height of style.
Bath Tub Form
Your tub style is going to be dictated by your taste and the theme you've chosen for your space. One of the most popular themes in bathrooms is antique country, so it's no surprise that antique and vintage tub styles are in high demand to couple with antique bathroom vanities and fixtures. Although it is possible to hunt down a true antique, reproductions are plentiful. Available in both cast iron and porcelain, you can find the modern take on an antique tub style, often for a more reasonable price than hunting down an authentic vintage model.
If you're looking for a more modern tub, you'll find designs that are based more on features than on design. A spa tub, complete with massaging jets, is the height of luxury in any bathroom. You can find these models in large sizes, complete with hot tub style seating, as well as in the standard bath tub size.
Modern tubs also mean greater selection in the shape of the tub and in tub enclosures. When it comes to choosing shape, a corner bath tub gives you extra style points and can also help you make better use of a small space. Round tubs are also popular, particularly if you choose one of the aforementioned spa tubs.
For tub enclosure options, you can now go beyond just a shower curtain – glass or plastic shower doors are available in numerous styles and designs to add a touch of elegance to your bathroom. For a contemporary look, clear glass doors with an elegant slate or porcelain-tiled built-in tub is very stylish, but you can also find doors with frosting or etched patterns for more privacy.
Top Bath Tub Choices:
A whirlpool bath tub (or whirlpool spa tub) is both a luxury in a bathroom and a necessity for those with muscle pains or debilitating physical conditions. This jetted tub has anywhere from 2 to 12 streams (depending on the size of the tub), strategically placed to deliver high-pressure bursts of water to various parts of the body for a relaxing and beneficial massage.
Whirlpool tubs are made to fit easily into any bathroom. You can choose a regular or corner whirlpool tub, depending on your room's size and design. The most popular model, a Jacuzzi tub, is available in a variety of design and color choices, so you can integrate one into your bathroom decor or easily design a new decor around your chosen style. Although an acrylic whirlpool tub will cost you more than a standard acrylic tub, remember that the extra dollars are well-spent. With proper maintenance, you'll have an attractive, functional, luxurious tub that will last you for years to come.
