Bathtubs aren't just for bathing.  Usually the largest fixture in the bathroom, people are paying more attention to its looks, design, and ergonomic styling.  Today's bathtub is a focal point and a centerpiece.

Tub Materials and Shapes

Bathtubs can be made out of a variety of materials, including glass, wood, stone, and even stainless steel.  And while white is still a popular choice, designer tubs come in all hues and shades, from the brightest red to translucent glass.

Bathtubs come in all shapes, allowing them to be placed along walls, in corners, or to be freestanding.  They also come in all sizes, from four-foot space-saving bathtubs to tubs that are big enough for two.  An average bath is 30 to 32 inches wide; anything narrower will feel tight.  Deeper tubs enable the water to cover you even if you can't lie down.

Spas and Whirlpool Bathtubs

With our hectic lifestyles, bathtubs are not only seen as a place to wash away the day's grime, they are also seen as a place to wash away the day's worries and cares.  Spa and whirlpool baths are not only relaxing, they are often touted for their health benefits.  Not only are spa and whirlpool baths wonderful for tired and sore muscles, they are also said to improve blood circulation, stimulate lymphatic drainage, and increase oxygenation to the skin.  Top-of-the-line models are equipped with features such as radio and CD players, underwater lights, ultrasound massage, and even aromatherapy!
