Bathtubs Undermount Installation

Today's Available Bath Options

A couple of decades ago, if you wanted to remodel your bathroom, your bathtub choice would not have been a hard decision to make.  The only option you had back then was basically a regular bathtub installed against two or maybe three walls.  Today, however, if you are considering remodeling your bathroom, there are many more options that are available to you.  It can actually feel quite overwhelming trying to decide which kind of bathtub to select.  Here is a closer look at some of  the main styles of bathtubs available on the market today.  These range from the simple freestanding bathtub all the way up to the luxury whirlpool tub.

Drop-in Baths

This style of bath has a very elegant appearance.  It comes with a finished edge, which can be dropped in a custom-made surround or deck.  Drop-in baths may be installed in various creative places, including sunk into a floor, on an island or in a room's corner.  The bath has a support placed underneath it.  This style of bath is perfect if you are looking for a stylish and unique design where you have plenty of space for a surround that is both attractive and functional.

Walk-in Tubs

This type of bathtub is perfect for individuals who have mobility issues.  All you have to do is open the door, walk to the bath, then sit on the seat.  You also have the option of having whirlpool jets installed with a walk-in tub.  These jets have fantastic therapeutic benefits.  Walk-in tubs come in a wide range of sizes, color choices and also various different lengths and widths.  This makes it very easy to locate a tub that will fit your budget as well as your available space.

Freestanding Baths

This type of bath is quite fashionable and also looks incredible.  If you prefer, the bath can be installed in the middle of the bathroom or at a distance from the walls.  The base of the bath can be directly placed on the floor if you wish.  However, most homeowners prefer to use a base or decorative feet to support their bath.

Alcove baths

This type of bathtub fits into a recess or three-walled space.  It is ideal for a shower and bath setup.  This type of bath makes good use of space that is in bathrooms with unusual shapes.  This kind of bath is also easy to install in most cases.

Corner Baths

This type of bath fits into the bathroom's corner.  These elegant and spacious bathtubs normally have five sides.  They are designed so that two people can bathe comfortably at the same time together.

Undermount Tubs

Whirlpool Tubs

With this type of bathtub system, water is forced through a series of powerful jets, providing massage-like benefits to your body and muscles.  A Whirlpool bath is a great option for individuals suffering from aches and pains.  The Whirlpool system will help to reduce pressure on one's joints and soothe one's muscles.
