There are many different bathtub styles to make a choice from, but one of the most popular types of recent years is the Japanese bathtub which really does add a great element of style to any room. It may seem that choosing a Japanese bathtub is a difficult matter but by following a few simple rules it is possible to find the bathtub you need very easily. This article will take a look at the three areas of cost, depth, and size so that the choice is much more simple.
If cost is no option then one of the best things you can do is look at a sunken Japanese bathtub, which is the traditional Japanese bathtub style. These will be quite expensive because they need to have some major building work done in order to install them, but for a bathing experience they really cannot be beat.
The other thing that needs to be taken into account is the actual depth of the bathtub itself. Japanese bathtubs do need to be of a certain depth in order to give the correct soaking experience, but you can get more shallow bathtubs which can do a pretty good job. One of the things you can do is look at buying an upright soaking tub so that you can save space in the bathroom but still get the deep soaking experience.
When it comes to size, the bigger the better is a good rule to follow, because in order to have a proper Japanese bathing experience the bath needs to be quite large. However there are now some compact models on the market which can fit into a small bathroom, particularly the square bathtub types which can fit into a corner. By choosing one of these you will be able to have a Japanese bathtub without using up too much space.
Take these considerations in mind when you come to choose your Japanese bathtub and you will not go far wrong.
