What features are most important when purchasing a soaking tub? Having an outdoor tub in your garden or a large bathtub inside your home can do wonders for your well-being. But there are many different types of soaking tubs, so you'll want to choose what works best in your home. Here are some options to consider:
A popular trend in bathroom design now is a freestanding tub separate from a walk-in shower. This gives you flexibility and freedom to choose the design and placement that work for your bathroom. It also allows you to have a deeper tub so as to maximize soaking comfort.
Japanese-style soaking tub
Japanese soaking tubs are also often freestanding but tend to be smaller in scale, appropriate for smaller bathroom spaces. Traditionally, these tubs were made of wood, but stone, copper, steel and acrylic tubs are also available. The primary purpose of this type of tub is to provide a luxurious soaking experience in a small space.
Fitting your space
Whatever you choose, make sure you have a suitable space and that you're not reducing the functionality of your bathroom in exchange for luxury. Make sure you measure your space and still have room to move around.
Creating a separate soaking tub room
If you do have plenty of space, it's possible to separate your soaking tub from the bathroom area. Creating a separate room provides the luxury and privacy you want for bathing. Depending on your home's design, you can even consider putting one in a private outdoor space.
