It seems that over the last ten years or so that bathrooms have moved from being just functional rooms to outright getaways in your home. With the improvement of products, particularly baths, you can turn your home?s bathroom into something of an oasis. America?s love affair with baths and types of bathtubs goes back a long way, and today there are many options available for homeowners to choose from. As always, the bath and kitchen remodeling experts at Striking Kitchen and Bath by Bell are here to help. We?ve put together a general overview of the types of bathtubs you may want to consider when remodeling your bathroom in Denver, CO:
This is the simple, rectangular, all-purpose type of bathtub most people are used to seeing. This type of bath resides in an alcove, and is good for bathing, showering, even washing the family dog. This type of tub typically doesn?t have any bells or whistles, but it gets the job done.
If you are looking for a tub to take you away from it all, you are going to want to consider a soaking tub. As its name indicates, the purpose of this tub is to get a good, relaxing soak. These tubs are usually quite deep so that you can immerse your entire body into the water, and they come in a multitude of shapes, varieties and colors.
Also known as a ?jacuzzi tub,? the whirlpool tub excites the water in your tub by injecting bubbles into it from strategically-placed nozzles. These tubs can be very luxurious, but they do require expert installation and servicing as they contain pumps and hoses, and have to connect to your home?s electrical system for power.
This type of tub is a great option for those who want to be able to take a bath but may have trouble getting in and out of a tub. A walk-in tub has a door that seals to keep the water in and a bench for the person to sit on comfortably while bathing.
