Know the Different Types of Bathroom Tubs

For a long time, the bathroom decor was not as relevant compared to other rooms. However, this trend has changed. More and more sophisticated materials are used to make this place, such as  granite and marble, combined with a lot of creativity in relation to the shapes of decorative objects.

Following this line, several types of tubs appeared to improve the environment of bathrooms and toilets.

Anylistintheus points out two important points to help you make a better choice on the bathroom tub:

The first refers to the size of the tub. It is necessary to measure the size of the available space so that the place is not overloaded and with little space for circulation.

The second point is to payattention to the specifications of the tank model, ie a specific type of plumbing, a suitable faucet shape, the type of maintenance to be done, and other precautions that must be taken.

Now that you know the basics, know the tub models and see which fits best in your space.

Built-in tanks

It is the most economical and most traditional type, having a simpler and more discreet design. They are positioned embedded under the countertop, requiring a cabinet or cabinet to cover the finish under the sink.

A closet can house objects in general, from personal hygiene products or even bathroom cleaners, being a great choice of organization. But pay attention to the size of the cabinet and the bench, an exaggeration can minimize the circulation space and make the environment unbalanced.

Support tanks

In this type of vat the mold is entirely exposed on the workbench. They bring a more modern look and are most commonly used in toilets. It is not necessary to cut the stone to fit the piece, only a hole is enough to allow the water to flow.

Check available space. This tank requires a slightly larger area in terms of height, so the ideal is to position it on a slightly lower bench. The faucet should be a little more elongated or attached to the wall. See about the ideal measurements for bathroom countertops in:  Bathroom Ergonomics and Circulation

Overlap tanks

It is an intermediate style between the support tank and the built-in tank. It shows a ledge that is considered the edge of the sink, which characterizes a simpler yet modern model. The fact that the tub is installed with the edges on the bench provides a larger free area at the bottom of the sink, allowing a lower cabinet more spacious than the built-in tub.

And the same applies with regard to the support tank, the part occupied above the workbench will be much smaller, not needing a sink so low to be installed. Its design is also intermediate, staying between the sophistication of the cuba of support and the simplicity of the cuba of embutir.

Buckets of semi-recess

The semi-recess bin is a model in which only the back of the tub is engaged, leaving a jagged edge out of the sink. It is the best choice for countertops with a reduced depth.

Pay attention to the lower cabinet doors of the sink, this model may make it impossible to open the doors of the cabinet. The easiest solution for this case is to use the sliding doors on rails.

Sculptured vats

As the name itself says, they are made from a custom method, being shaped into stones such as granite, marble, porcelain, silestone and others. Its look brings a more stylish and contemporary mood to the bathroom environment, provided by the uniformity that the bench features.

The main concern regarding this type of vat is maintenance. Most of the vats are made with a hole that fulfills the function of the drain, however this system makes cleaning difficult, occurring the accumulation of mud and consequently the bad smell.

The solution to this problem is simple, when ordering the tub, make sure that a removable piece is made to make cleaning easier and to bring a more hygienic appearance to your bathroom. Learn more about:Bathroom and Toilet Basins
