Types of Bathtubs

Freestanding: A freestanding bathtub is available in two main forms. The first type is the classic iron claw-footed bathtub. The more modern soapstone tub is the second form of freestanding bathtubs. Freestanding tubs work great in large spaces as the can be placed anywhere.

Recessed / Corner: A recessed tub is the more typical style of bathtub seen in many homes today. Recessed tubs have only one finished side showing, while the other three sides are enclosed by the tiled bathroom walls. Corner tubs are like recessed bathtubs except only two finished sides are showing.

Walk-In: For those with any kind of mobility issues due to age or disability, walk-in tubs are a great choice. Walk-in tubs have higher walls and a bench inside so that the user may sit without having to go too far down. Full, watertight doors are what make walk-in tubs so easily accessible. These tubs focus more on their functionality than design, and are a great, safe choice for anyone with mobility issues.

Whirlpool: Do you have a large ensuite that needs a good bathtub? You should consider a whirlpool tub. Relaxing in these tubs is easy with all the space available. Whirlpool tubs are also very functional due to the built-in jets which are great for sore muscles.

Platform: Platform bathtubs are just that – a tub built into a raised base that is tiled to match the rest of the bathroom. Platforms tubs can be installed in one of two ways: fully lowered so only the inside of the tub is visible, or slightly visible so only the lip of the tub sticks out. Platform bathtubs are great for modern looking bathrooms.

Types of Showers

Frameless: Frameless showers are named after their thick glass walls that are without frames. Sometimes these frameless glass walls will start from a tiled half wall that is surrounding the shower base. If you have any questions or need any questions, please let us know.

Semi-Frameless: Semi-Frameless showers are a good substitute for those who want a glass shower but can not afford a frameless shower. Semi-frameless showers are typically framed on one side, while the top and bottom of the shower are left open. The side that is framed is the outer wall which is framed glass with a door.

Glass Framed: Glass frame showers have framed glass walls that completely surround the shower. These easy to clean showers will look great in any modern bathroom. If you have a smaller bathroom, this would be a great choice for you, as the glass shower gives the illusion of more space.

Bathtub Shower: Bathtub showers are bathtubs that also have a shower component. Many homes today have bathtub shower systems so they can have the option to use either the tub or shower. This is a great choice of system for common family bathrooms, as children need to be bathed, while adults prefer to shower.
