Enhance Your Bathroom Design With the Right Bathtub

Bathroom with good bathtub
When you need to get clean quickly, a shower is your best option. For those occasions when you have a bit more time on your hands, you might want to spend a few relaxing hours soaking in your bathtub.

Many homes are equipped with builder-grade tubs that are not conducive to comfortable soaking. Upgrade the bathtub in your home if you want to enhance the design of your bathroom while maintaining maximum function.

Design

The comprehensive design of your bathroom should influence your selection of a bathtub. The tub is one of the largest fixtures that you will find in a bathroom, so it's essential that the tub you select blends seamlessly into your overall aesthetic.

A freestanding bathtub can serve as a focal point in your bathroom. These tubs do not need to be placed adjacent to a wall. They usually feature a deep bowl that rests on a pedestal or platform. Freestanding tubs can create a spa-like retreat within your home.

If you want to showcase high-end tile work or maintain a simple aesthetic in your bathroom, then you will want a tub that blends with the rest of the room's design. Corner tubs or drop-in bathtubs are your best option for securing a soaking space that won't draw too much attention.

Materials

The design of your desired bathtub can limit the construction materials that are available. Acrylic or fiberglass can be great options for corner or drop-in tubs. These materials are lightweight and can be finished with a variety of colors.

A freestanding tub can be viewed from all angles, so you will want to use an attractive material. A cast-iron tub is perfect for homeowners who want to soak in a luxurious pool of warm water. The cast iron helps retain heat, so your bathwater won't cool prematurely. Many different types of enamel in varying colors can be used to personalize a cast iron tub.

Natural stone, copper, or laminated wood can also be used to create a freestanding tub. These materials are more costly, but they make a bold statement that can enhance the design of your bathroom.

Features

The right features can make your bathtub a more relaxing oasis. Modern tubs come equipped with an array of options that are designed to enhance the bathing experience. Jets can send pressurized air through the water in your tub. This transforms your bathtub into a massage tool that can help soothe sore muscles at the end of a long day.

Chromatherapy is another bathtub trend that has really taken off. LED lights are installed underwater to add some color to your bath water. You can select from a range of colors to help mirror your mood.

Music can help set the mood while you relax in your bathtub. Consider investing in a tub with resonant speaker panels built into the sidewalls of the tub itself. These speakers allow the vibrations of the music to travel through your water while broadcasting clear sound. You can even sync your bathtub to your laptop or cell phone and create a special bathing playlist.

A new bathtub can completely transform the look and function of your bathroom. Be sure that you carefully consider your design needs, the materials you want to incorporate in your bathroom, and any modern features that will enhance your bathing experience before you invest in a new bathtub.
