When considering adding a Jacuzzi® Bathtub to your home, the space available and style of your bathroom are undoubtedly big factors. But, what you may not realize is that the bathtub installation type also is a factor. With that in mind, here are five ways a Jacuzzi® Bathtub can be installed:
A freestanding bath immediately commands attention. Classic and sculpted in design, it’s unencumbered by shelving or walls and positioned to be independent of any other bathroom elements. Ideal for larger spaces, if you choose to install a tub in this manner it will be the focal point of any room.
A stylish installation that fits nicely with a sophisticated bathroom, the drop-in bath is offered in multiple shapes, including rectangle, oval, and corner. This makes it a popular installation type as it suits a variety of bathroom configurations. It features a distinctive rim, which provides a slightly dramatic look as well as a comfortable place to rest your head during a hot soak.
With this method, your bathtub is concealed in a contained unit that features an appealing surface top of marble, stone, or tile. This surface with be the aesthetic highlight, as only the interior of the tub will be visible. An undermount installation is perfect for those who seek a clean, uncluttered appearance and would like to choose from a variety of shapes.
A more common bathtub installation, a skirted tub is designed to be surrounded on three of its four sides. This installation is best for smaller bathrooms or for those who are looking to create an intimate space of privacy and serenity. The designer outfacing skirt will add a subtle accent to your installation, without overwhelming the room.
A walk-in installation fulfils two needs: It is tremendously safe to access, and it fits in a confined space. You can enter and exit your tub via a door that seals upon shutting, preventing any kind of leak. Additionally, it has built-in seating to make it as comfortable as it is safe.
Whether your bathroom is tiny or expansive, and whether you prefer something subtle or dramatic, you can install a Jacuzzi® Bathtub in your home in a manner that complements and enhances your space.
