Ever gone into a house whether it’s that of a friend or an open house somewhere and wonder why on earth there was no bathtub in the bathroom? Yes, it happens, folks just don’t have the room or don’t need a bathtub and instead opt for a shower. Yikes!
What’s better after a long hard day than a soak in a nice, deep, warm tub of water? Not a lot according to a lot of us which is why bathtubs come in so many shapes and sizes, so they’re perfect for any space.
Of course the more distance you have the more choices for that perfect tub you will have. We’ve all seen the glossy magazine images of a enormous bathtub in the middle of a massive bathroom. While we might not all be going that crazy, bathtubs can still make an impression.
Stand alone tubs can make that statement but will also require additional plumbing than the ones that sit against a wall. Some come with these lovely clawfeet that invoke such intimate images, and a few are beautifully designed vessels offering a modern, sleek take on the tub design. Here the possibilities are endless, you can fancy up it with different tiles or surrounds and obviously change the taps and you have changed the whole appearance of the bathroom. If, down the line you get sick of the tiles or encircle then you simply change that out and give your room a completely new look, while retaining the tub set up.
Triangular tubs are supposed to be used in tiny spaces as they are space saving in design. They generally sit two walls with the plumbing hidden underneath and behind the wall so there is no requirement for additional plumbing work.
Large or small, soaker or regular, 1 person or several people the bathtub is the showpiece of the restroom. Add a shower and you’ve got a two for one set up but do away with the tub entirely? No way!
