If you’re remodeling your bathroom or looking to upgrade your bathtub, all of the various features and specific details you find while browsing bathtubs may be overwhelming. This article will describe some of the common features of bathtubs to help you pick the right style, size and type for your bathroom.
SteamShowersInc.com offers air-jet bathtubs, free-standing bathtubs, walk in bathtubs, dip-in bathtubs, drop-in bathtubs and whirlpool bathtubs. All of these bathtubs can be used in hydrotherapy, or the medicinal use of water on the body to reduce pain, promote relaxation and improve circulation to ease the muscles. Hydrotherapy is also a form of physical therapy.
Whirlpool massage jets provide a deep massage that helps tired muscles and improves circulation. These jets shoot water to provide hydrotherapy to the body. Air jets, on the other hand, shoot bubbles of air that gently massage the body. This also creates circulation but offers a softer massage. Air jets clean themselves if you run them after draining the tub.
Walk in bathtubs offer a safer alternative of getting into a bathtub that is necessary for those who are worried about falling. This includes elderly people or people who have suffered a bodily injury. Additionally, depending upon which model you choose, walk in bathtubs on SteamShowersInc.com come with built-in seats, grab bars and textured bottoms for safety. Our walk in bathtubs are ADA compliant and come with whirlpool jets and air jets, or air jets alone, depending upon your preference and needs. Walk in bathtubs also come with handheld showerheads and come in six standard sizes for ease of installation. These units are made of reinforced acrylic and can easily replace your old set up. Furthermore, everyone in the home will be able to enjoy the walk in bathtub.
The Ariel Platinum line of bathtubs offers more luxurious features in all-in-one units that are convenient to install. These include jets, chromatherapy lighting and FM Radio. Chromatherapy is the use of colored lights to influence a person’s mood. For example, the color red stimulates emotion while the color blue relaxes and brings peace to the person.
These models come in a variety of styles, including narrow models that are see through and larger corner bathtubs that accommodate more than one person. The Ariel BT-062 Whirlpool Bathtub is a great choice for those wanting a more vintage look that still includes claw legs, six hydro-massage whirlpool jets and a handheld showerhead. Alternatively, the Ariel BT-150150 Whirlpool Bathtub is an extremely modern corner bathtub model with side by side head rests for those wanting a contemporary look. It is capable of holding 98 gallons of water, includes a computer control panel and nine hydro-massage whirlpool jets. The front of the unit is accented with tempered glass.
With a ready-to-go bathtub unit with multiple features included, there’s no need for excess remodeling work in order to create the bathroom experience of your dreams.
