Bathtubs

Whirlpool Bathtubs

Not only is the whirlpool bathtub luxurious, but it is a very practical part of your bathroom decor. Consider those with muscle pain or chronic physical conditions, and you can see why the whirlpool bathtub is considered both a luxury and a necessity. And with our aging baby-boomers set to be living well into their eighties, the whirlpool bath will only increase in popularity.
Depending on the size of whirlpool bath tub, you can have up to 12 jet streams of water placed strategically (and also maneuverable) which apply a soothing high-pressure of water to massage body parts longing for some pain relief.

Whirlpool tubs (often referred to as a Jacuzzi) can come as regular or corner tubs, depending on the shape and size of your bathroom. Because of the terrific choice of designs and colors, you can easily find something to fit your current bathroom decor. 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.

Clawfoot Bathtubs

Named for the distinctive four small toed feet that the bathtub rests on, a clawfoot bath tub is long and oblong in shape. It is the most popular style of antique bath tub. Authentic clawfoot tubs were made of cast iron or porcelain. Today's models, however, feature acrylic clawfoot tubs which are actually sturdier and easier to clean.

If you would like a shower to go with your clawfoot tub you can find the right bathroom accessories at Bathroom and Vanities to give you both options. A clawfoot tub shower enclosure typically involves an oblong shower rod that circles around the tub and a long bathroom shower curtain that can be drawn to cover all sides of the tub. Definitely suited for a country antique bathroom look.

Soaking Bathtubs

A soaking tub is the latest rage but its roots go back centuries to the Far East cultures.

Consider the Japanese soaking tub. It is a deep vertical tub where the full-body is immersed. With over 250 gallons of water, it is quite the soak. The American version has an increased width and depth and includes massaging jets.

Although quite luxurious the price makes it appealing only to the very wealthy.

Walk-in Bath Tub

If an elderly or disabled person lives with you, a walk in bath tub is ideal. These bath tubs come with a door built in, which allows easy access into the tub and then seals tight to prevent any leak. These tubs are as large and sometimes larger than regular tubs often coming equipped with seats for comfort and stability.

Adding hand rails and non-slip mats are essential safety precautions in any tub, particularly for the very young and the elderly. Massaging jets are also a welcome addition for those with muscle strain issues or health problems.
