Which Bathtub Do You Like Best?

I have a habit that I must have a bath before sleep. I think most people have this habit, especialy women.A bathtub is an integral part of most homes, so much so that many homes have more than just one.In addition to being highly functional and allowing you to be clean, it also makes for a wonderful place to relax. By soaking in a tub with hot water, you can literally soak your worries away, not to mention the various aches and pains in your body.

Bathtub has many types,different materials, different shapes, different colors, different efficiency and so on. I will simpleandsimple.

Tubs not only come in a multitude of sizes, colors and styles, but in a variety of materials as well. The choice and combination depends upon individual needs and tastes, as well as architectural limitations.

With dozens of manufacturers offering myriad shapes and sizes in a variety of materials and with numerous options, a visit to a bathtub showroom can be a bewildering experience.

Bathtubs are made from Porcelain on Steel, Acrylic, Fiberglass/Gelcoat, Composite, Cast Iron, and Cultured Marble. See our Available Bathtub Materials for detailed information on each of these materials..

The most popular tub type today is still the basic, 5 ft. wall-to-wall built-in model in white or biscuit. Millions of these units are sold every year. There is very style little difference between any of these models. Some are porcelain on steel; some are acrylic; some are cast iron. There are differences in quality and price, but not a great deal in style.

Claw-foot bathtubs are still being sold if you prefer an antique look. Actually, the quality and finish on these units today is as fine as any available. Many people still prefer this style of bathing. Some manufacturers have updated the design to appear quite modern.

In addition, Bathtubs are available in the following styles: Built-In, Freestanding, Soaking, Whirlpool, and Specialty.

When selecting a bathtub for personal use, the most important consideration is comfort. Tubs are being designed in every conceivable size and shape, of a variety of materials, and with a number of comfort features. The best way to choose one is to think about how it will be used, and then to go to the showroom and sit in a few models to find out what feels comfortable.
