Can Your Bathroom Really Be Complete
Without A Great Bath Tub?

After a hard day hauling around bags and boxes, the first thing most people want to do is clean up. Of course, you can jump in the shower to wash off the grime, but there's just nothing like being able to take a soak in one of those comfortable bathroom tubs to wash away the worries and stresses of your day.

If you've been admiring those massive garden tubs, you may be thinking that your bathroom isn't big enough for a tub. However, while you may not be able to squeeze in a tub the size of a small pool, you have plenty of room to put a tub in as long as you have an empty space of at least four feet long and three feet wide. Bathroom tubs come in space saver sizes so people with small bathrooms can still enjoy a soak after a long, hard day of work. Also, if you have a shower in your bathroom, you may want to remove it and replace it with a combination tub with a surround and shower attachment. This way, you can still grab a quick shower, but you also have the option to soak if you are feeling sore or just want to relax and destress in your tub with your favorite aromatherapy candle burning nearby.

One of the most comfortable bathroom tubs is the old fashioned claw foot soaking tub. This tub design has been popular with people who want to relax and ease sore muscles for over a hundred years. Today, many people have the original models re-enameled and installed in their modern bathrooms. Others prefer buying reproduction models, which have the same design features, but are often made of fiberglass instead of cast iron. This becomes a really important factor if you need to lug your new tub up two flights of stairs! Cast iron is considerably heavier than fiberglass and not at all flexible.

If you have the space, you may want to consider a garden tub. These tubs are large enough for someone to really relax and enjoy the warm water. You may just feel like you have your own in house spa every time you take a soak, especially if your tub has whirlpool jets installed.

If you don't have whirlpool jets, but would like to enjoy their therapeutic benefits, you may want to consider one of the optional bath tub fixtures available - the portable whirlpool jet. This accessory can really make even the most unexciting tub into a really amazing way to kick back and relax. One of the other fixtures you may want to consider is a spray attachment to make washing your children's (or your dog's) hair easier.

Once you have enjoyed the way bathroom tubs can loosen up aching muscles and joints, you will never want to go without a tub in your home again.
