Soaking tubs are a wonderful addition to your bathroom. While a shower gets you clean and can be invigorating, deep soaking tubs are perfect for relaxation and pampering.
Bathroom soaking tubs are available in a wide variety of styles, sizes and colors, you are sure to find one that look great in your bath. There are even extra deep soaking tubs for taller individuals. The deeper size allows more comfort and prevents the user from feeling stuffed in.
If you have not priced these tubs or looked into them, that is something that you might want to do as you may find yourself pleasantly surprised by how inexpensive they are. You might expect to pay thousands of dollars but in reality you can find one for only hundreds instead.
The enjoyment you will get out of it makes it well worth the price. Your bathroom will become a relaxation spa. Slipping into one after a hard day is like taking a mini vacation. During warm weather you can also fill it with cooler water to relax in, it feels great after being in the heat. You will feel like you have a private pool just for yourself.
When deciding on a soaking tub measure the area you have available for installation. Keep in mind that you have many options as far as shapes are concerned; you can get a corner tub, an oval, rectangle or round. This variety of shapes means it is easier to find the space for one no matter what your bathroom size.
Before making your purchase it is a good idea to have the plumber who will be installing your tub come over to discuss which side your faucet should be on. It may not matter at all, but just in case one side will be better and easier, check it out first.
The final consideration you will have to make after shape, size and which side the plumbing should be on, is color. It is best to choose the same color as the toilet and sink that is currently in the room, unless of course you are planning to replace them as well. If you are, then choose whichever color you like, just keep in mind that all major bathroom pieces should be the same color to avoid looking like a thrown together mismatch of pieces.
You are now ready to order your soaking tub and to experience years of enjoyment from it.
