BATHTUBS AND SHOWERS FRISCO
Bathtub, Shower, or Both?
Free-standing bathtubs are unattached to the walls. If you wish to change the position of your bathroom fixtures, a free-standing bathtub is your best option. Nothing can stop you from placing the tub at the center of the room, as long as foot traffic clearances are still observed. There are more modern designs available now, but the clawfoot tub is a popular variety.
Alcove bathtubs fit inside an enclosure so that its three sides are covered by walls. You can just slide it into its designated space as most standard sizes can be accommodated by most bathroom styles. This is the more cost-effective and space-saving type of bathtub with an average length of 60 inches.
Drop-in bathtubs can also be installed in any space in the bathroom. First, you need a deck to put this type of bathtub in. The rim sticks out more, providing a polished look after the tub is installed. The framed enclosure can have more width and act out as extra space for soap and other toiletries.
Corner bathtubs are a bit unconventional, but they are not entirely unpopular. They are the ultimate space-saving solutions to small spaces. Because most of the time, homeowners do not realize they have extra space in the corners for a bathtub. You would be surprised.
Benefits of Having a Tub and Shower Combination
Since you do not need to shell out more money for furnishing a separate shower and tub space, you get to save on remodeling expenses. The money you save can be used to replace other fixtures such as the bathroom vanity, cabinets, or even the toilet. You might even get to invest in cost-effective water and electricity systems from the money you saved.
Suitable for All Ages
Kids have better baths in bathtubs. Adults most of the time just need a quick shower before heading to work. If you are living with your family and want to save on expenses without taking away the luxury of a good warm bath, the tub and shower combination is your best option. However, if you live with elderly people or those who might have a hard time getting into the bathtub, you will need a separate shower.
There is always the option to customize the tub and the shower system according to your preferences. With more features and elements in one space, you can either go for a monochrome look or go bold with details. Small fixtures such as faucets, knobs, hoses, and the showerhead can make all the difference in styling.
