Installation of freestanding showers in master bathrooms may continue to be a trend that is on the rise. However, the options of bathtubs have all but disappeared from bathrooms. In fact, despite showers being considered more practical for everyday use than a bathtub, the option of a bathtub still remains extremely popular for a variety of uses.

A bathtub can offer the opportunity for individuals to be able to relax and soak luxuriously, which keeps it a highly desirable option for many bathrooms. Other individuals might find that a bathtub is simply more ideal option for bathing young children than a shower would be; and some individuals may have physical therapy needs that benefit from bathtubs as an option. It doesn’t matter what your reason behind wanting a bathtub is. Bathtubs offer features to homeowners and their families that a shower simply is unable to.

There are many bathtub options on the market today, each with their own unique offering as to how they can fit into your bathroom.

Utilitarian Tubs

When a tub is needed to be able to accomplish tasks such as bathing young children, or being able to wash more than one small child at a time, utilitarian style tubs remain a popular choice in the homes of young families. Standing just at 14” in height, a utilitarian tub is relatively low and can make bathing children easier and more convenient for Mom or Dad.

Whirlpool Tubs

Whirlpool tubs are large tubs that have many jets with multiple speed settings, with the ability to be both relaxing as well offering benefits for physical therapy purposes. Whirlpool tubs can be a great option to consider for those who are looking for a bathtub experience that is more than just for bathing.

Another bathtub option that an individual might consider is one that creates an effervescent feeling while bathing, utilizing an air or bubble system. These types of tubs have a series of many pin-sized holes in the bottom of the tub, and air is pushed out from these holes which results in a bathing experience that is quite gentle and relaxing, and particularly unique.

Many other options are available for bathtub choices. When deciding which might be right for you, you either have the option of finding a tub that fits your overall plans for your bathroom remodel; or you can plan your bathroom remodel to fit around your bathtub choice.
