The bathtub is an item that some people just require in their bathrooms for them to feel like home. Learn all about the different types of bathtubs you can have in your Baltimore home!
Basic Tub and Shower Combo
This is the type of bathtub you see in most homes. This is usually a squared off tub with a shower attachment, so this can be multi-functional. This tub is designed for the whole family from washing the kids and the animals to yourself. These are great if you are doing a guest bathroom remodel or you are doing a smaller bathroom unit within your home. These tubs come in some different styles and usually are installed in an alcove to give you enough room to store bathing products in the shower/bath area as well.
These tubs are relaxing and have a lot of room, with the ability to submerge yourself in the bath; they are deeper than your standard bathtub. These tubs come in many different varieties and can fit into any bathroom style. Some other variations of this tub are the clawfoot and the feress standing, great for a vintage themed room.Soaking tubs can be designed to fit in many spaces. This type of tub is great for the main bathroom in your home, or as a master bath. Anyone will love to soak in this tub in Baltimore.
This tub is similar to a basic, but it has a door you can open and close instead of a ledge to climb over. These tubs were designed with the elderly or people with difficult mobility in mind. This tub makes it easy to take a bath or shower. The door has a sealant to allow standing water to be present. These tubs usually come equipped with a slip resistant bottom, built in seat, grab bars, and a hand-held shower nozzle. These tubs would make a great addition if you have loved ones living with you that need extra help.
Whirlpool or Air
These tubs are the item of luxury in your Baltimore home. They have jets and bubbles that are released at certain points of the tub. This tub can give you the sensation of a massage, which is the ultimate way to relax.
The main difference between a whirlpool and an air tub is that a whirlpool tub will invade water into the tub, creating a whirlpool effect. The air tub will push air through a specific plumbing system, to create thousands of bubbles. These tubs are wonderful if you are looking for a relaxing and invigorating experience right in your own home. This would be the perfect addition to a private bathroom for you and your loved one to enjoy any day of the week.
