What Style Of Tub Is Best For You?

Posted on: 6 March 2019

You have been thinking of upgrading your bathtub and you've been thinking a Whirlpool would be a great model to buy. The issue you have is this: what style of tub do you want? Do you want a round tub? An oblong design? Perhaps a modern square or rectangular tub? What about features, such as jets or steps to get inside the tub?

With so many options available to you, you want to get a tub that will meet your needs best. What style of tub is best for you? Here is a guide to help you decide so you can get your new tub and enjoy it for as long as the unit lasts. Once you have made your decision, your installation expert will make sure the unit is installed properly for both attraction and longevity.


A round tub offers you the space you desire for a single-person bath. You can get a round tub that has a deeper depth than a traditional tub so you can soak for as long as you like in both comfort and luxury.


An oblong or oval tub is one that is spacious, so you can bathe for two or stretch out when you're in the bath. You can get a custom length if you are especially tall so you don't have to bathe with your knees at your chest.


If you want a bathtub that is unique and modern, consider a square or rectangular tub design. This design features a streamlined appeal so you can bathe in luxury with a unit that complements the rest of your modern bathroom easily.


A jetted tub gives you more relaxation and can be good for you if you need to decompress at the end of the day, have sore muscles, or have a joint issue. Jets emit bubbles in your water and gentle water pressure to put you at ease while you cleanse yourself and relax.


If you have problems getting in and out of the bath or you want a bathtub that is easier for your kids to use, consider getting a bathtub with built-in stairs. Stairs can be placed on just the outside of the tub or on both the interior and exterior to make getting in and out much safer. It's recommended to also install handrails if this is the option you are going for so you have added security and greater balance.
