Choosing a Tub: Let Me Count the Ways

Many people are surprised when they research the wide variety of shapes, materials, and colors bathtubs come in these days. Every type of bathtub provides a different purpose. When we were younger we would think the 14 inch rectangular general purpose tub was the only one out there. Now, when looking to remodel, the possibilities are endless.
There is the soaking tub that most remodelers long for because it gives them that luxury to immerse their entire bodies into the tub. These types of tubs can be made in a variety of styles and shapes. For example, look at the free standing tub that Excel Builders used here. It provides the depth for the home owners soaking pleasures and the modern clean lines for an updated design.
For those that may have some physical disabilities there is the walk-in bathtub. A walk-in tub enables a person to open a door on the side of the tub so the person can walk right in opposed to having to climb over the edge. The door is sealed so the water stays in making it possible for everyone in the world to enjoy the luxury of bathing.
Speaking of enjoying the luxury of bathing, there is also the whirlpool and air tubs that give off a therapeutic sensation by shooting water and air bubbles into the bathtub to massage the entire body. There is a difference between a whirlpool and an air tub. A whirlpool shoots water into the tub while an air tub pushes air into the water creating thousands of bubbles. These are both great options for remodelers looking for the bells and whistles to energize their bath time.
