For many people, the bathtub is the sacred spot in their home where they wash away all their worries and stress at the end of the day. There’s nothing more soothing than enjoying a tub filled with your favorite scents and warm water after being out and about the entire day. And if you can’t afford the luxury of having a full-sized bathtub in your bathroom, either due to lack of space or awkward bathroom design, worry not – you can always get a corner bathtub.
Featuring a more rounded shape, corner bathtubs can fit into many areas that were previously inaccessible for conventional bathtub models. And given that corner bathtubs are less common than the typical designs, they can provide a unique visual appearance to your bathroom, elevating its overall appearance. Here are some of the ways a corner bathtub can add style and versatility to your bathroom.
Maximize Floor Space
Placing a corner bathtub will open up the centre section of your bathroom allowing you to move freely throughout the rest of the room. This will give you more space for drying up after showering, for moving around your bathroom furniture and for whatever you may need to use your bathroom.
Use Less Wall Space
Since this bathtub is typically placed in the room’s corner, you will have more wall space for other bathroom features and fixtures. For better functionality, consider adding a roof shower over the bathtub to help you out on those busy mornings when you don’t have time for a long soak.
Improved Visual Appearance
Corner bathtubs have a distinctive elegance and lend themselves well to creative designs. Depending on the model, their sides and ledges can have beautiful finishes to complete the room’s decor and can display candles, toiletries, and flower arrangements to attain the appeal of spa baths.
Corner tubs offer a deeper volume for bathing when compared to traditional bathtubs. This enhances the user’s experience, making them a great choice for those who like a hot soak for relaxation as well as for pain relief.
Easy to Install
Corner tubs are versatile and can be installed in several ways, however, regardless of the model, they’re generally easy to install. Most models come with a choice of drain placement (centre or right or left side), which makes for easy access to plumbing. It is a good idea to install your tub near a sink or vanity for better access to water and drainage pipes.
