Large bathtubs – are those suitable for our bathroom
If you are lucky to own a spacious bathroom, large bathtubs are not a problem and you can choose any size of tub. However, before buying the dream bathtub, you need to do some planning. Carefully measure the area of the bathroom, as you will need to install a vanity cabinet, sink, a toilet and you need to have enough space for movement. When choosing the tub, make sure that width, length and depth are suitable for your family members. It is useful to know that bathtubs deeper than 70 cm are not very comfortable to keep your head in the water level.
Large bathtubs design and materials
Large bathtubs can be found in so many sizes, shapes and different materials. Cast iron tubs are familiar to many people. They are reliable and durable and the water in a cast iron tub remains warm for about an hour. However these are rather heavy and this is the main reason why cast iron is seldom used for the manufacturing of large bathtubs. Stainless steel tubs have lower weight and are easier to install but water will cool after half an hour.
Acrylic bathtubs have many advantages – they are light weight, very easy to install and are offered in a variety of shapes, colors and sizes. Modern tubs are often equipped with hydro and aero massage, lights, water temperature controls, etc. Of course, there are no limits for the imagination and creativity of designers and luxurious bathtubs can be made of wood, marble, stone or glass.
