Cornerstone Design and Remodeling Advises How to Pick the Perfect Bathtub for Your Bathroom Remodel

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 29, 2016) - When remodeling your home, bathrooms are often overlooked, which leaves something to be desired. Your bathroom is where you cleanse your body, and groom yourself to perfection; it is where you go to truly relax. The most important aspect of your bathroom remodel is the bathtub, which can immediately make your bathroom the most luxurious and refreshing room in your house. Bathtubs come in numerous designs, each complementing a different bathroom style and atmosphere. Because deciding on a bathtub depends on so many different components, like budget, personal taste and space available, we have compiled the 6 most popular and luxurious bathtubs that can satisfy your available square feet and provide the best return on investment.

#1: Alcove Tubs

Alcove bathtubs, or recessed bathtubs, are ideal for bathrooms that include an alcove section, or a section enclosed on three sides by walls. These bathtubs can be fitted on one side with as shower curtain, and a wall-mounted showerhead can be installed to maximize spatial efficiency.

#2: Soaking Tub

Designed specifically for those that enjoy the luxuries of soaking in a hot bath, these tubs feature a supportive shape that is much shorter and far deeper than traditional bathtubs, allowing you to sink lower and retain the water temperature. Hydrotherapy systems can also be installed in this tub, increasing your relaxation and refreshing, making its design truly something desirable.

#3: Freestanding

Freestanding bathtubs are a wonderful way to highlight your flooring, while also establishing the appearance of a spacious bathroom. These types of tubs can be installed essentially anywhere in the bathroom, proving them as one of the more versatile and flexible designs.

#4: Walk-In

The built-in seat as well as the watertight door installed in this bathtub offers the highest level of security and safety for those with limited mobility that still enjoy a relaxing bath. The seat provides the bather with the option to sit upright comfortably, and the elegant yet secure design ensures maximum protection while bathing.

#5: Claw Foot

Claw foot bathtubs are the epitome of class and style, with their vintage claw feet raising the tub several inches off the ground. This bathtub is perfect if you are looking for a centerpiece that will draw the attention of anyone who enters the bathroom, especially those that appreciate antique pieces.

#6: Drop-In

Drop-in bathtubs do not need a wall to be installed next to, as all the plumbing is concealed underneath the tub and the waterspouts are installed within the bathtub. Drop-in tubs can be installed with a shelf surrounding it; offering a place to sit when bathing young children or soaking only your feet, and whirlpool settings can also be implemented to maximize your relaxation.
