Bathrooms may be small sized or big, traditional looking or contemporary; but nobody can deny the importance of furnishing the bathrooms as comfortably as possible. When the bathroom layout is efficiently planned out in the initial stages, you can be sure of having a well laid out and well furnished bathroom that will give long years of service.
Depending on the size of the bathroom you can manage the layout that will optimally utilize the space available and comfortably position the three most important aspects of the bathroom – the sink, toilet and the shower-tub facilities. Whether you can plumb along the same wet wall or on different walls will depend on the size of the room and your design also.
Bathtub is very important furniture in a well appointed bathroom. Though nowadays, some of the tiny bathrooms we see in some one room apartments do not have enough space for a bathtub. In a moderate sized bathroom, bathtub becomes the focus of the bathroom adding to the ambience and comfort, and making the bathroom look complete and cozy.
What are the general types of bathtubs we have? Tubs can be freestanding and rest on legs called claw and ball feet or they can rest on a pedestal, sitting more solidly on the floor directly. A walk-in type wall supported bathtub with all safety features will make bathing safe for senior citizens like grab bars, built-in chair and a watertight door system.
Today there are modern bathtubs made of acrylic or fiberglass. Formerly only copper, cast iron or other composites with other materials were used with enamel over the interior inner surface. Today you can find waste drains, overflow drains and mounted taps with all facilities like telephone shower, power shower options mounted on the bathtubs.
Usually rectangular or oval shaped, with the advent of thermoformed acrylic bathtubs, innovative shaped bathtubs are easy to be found in the market. Normally one end of the bathtub used to be rounded and the other side flat. Today flat rim tubs, roll top tubs, slipper tubs with one end higher and sloped, double slipper tubs, are some of the new types you can check out.
