Many individuals are unaware of the different types of bathtubs that are available to them. In reality, there are multiple different styles and arrangements, but the three common types are the alcove tub, corner tubs, and free-standing bathtubs.
Alcove bathtub. This type of bathtub is one of the most common. It is typically considered the most cost effective and also saves on space. Generally situated in a three-walled enclosure, these tubs are installed against a back or sidewall and are finished on either end with a wall or cabinet unit.
Corner tub. Corner tubs are typically on the pricier end of bathroom installs; however, they add a luxurious feeling to any bathroom. This style, just like it sounds, is situated in the corner of a room. Just as these bathtubs are more expensive, they also take up more floor space and generally require more water. The luxury that this style affords is something few homeowners can pass up.
Free- standing tub. Free-standing tubs are stand-alone bath units that many homeowners dream of owning. They can be positioned anywhere in the bathroom without needing a wall. One drawback of this style is exposed plumbing that can be difficult to incorporate in a décor design.
Depending on the state of your bathroom, you may have a few different reasons for purchasing a new bathtub. One of the most common reasons for purchasing a new bathtub is aesthetics; however, a new bathtub purchase can also:
Help you alleviate plumbing issues.
Maximize space in a cramped bathroom.
Enhance the appeal of your existing bathroom design.
If you are considering a bathroom overhaul, you may also want to consider your shower options. While most people are not aware of the different types of showers, the three most common types are electric, power, and mixer showers.
Electric. Electric showers provide hot water on demand by simply heating cold water from the cold supply. The pressure available from your cold water mains supply limits the water pressure in these units.
Power. Power showers help increase your water pressure by utilizing a connected pump to the shower and water supply. One drawback of these systems is that they are likely to boost your water usage and bill if your property is metered.
Mixer. A mixer shower offers the most "customized" water temperature as it mixes hot water from your heating system and cold water from your mains supply. When choosing a mixer shower, it is important to select the right type for your water system.
