GEF - Bathtubs and Whirlpool Tubs (8)
Step away from the stress of daily life with a bathtub from Rona. Pick a shape from sleek, rectangular models to soft-looking, curved options. Look for colours that work well with the bathroom decor, and choose from white, off-white, brown, or blue-green models. Get an alcove tub for a cost-effective option that installs between three walls. Consider adding bathtub walls to keep the bathroom walls safe from humidity and make the cleaning process simple. For a stylish look, consider a freestanding tub with streamlined, modern looks or an intricate, historical feel.
Consider the available space in the bathroom. Standard bathtubs are typically 5 feet long and 30 inches wide, with a height ranging from 14 to 16 inches. Soaking tubs are often deeper, resulting in a more comfortable fit for users. Households with elderly individuals for whom safety is an issue should look for walk-in tubs, as this reduces the difficulty of getting in and out. Installing grab bars can also aid in keeping the elderly individual safe. Fit shelves around the tub to increase space for storing bathroom essentials.
For a relaxing experience, whirlpool tubs are a smart choice, as these jetted options help massage and relax tired muscles. There is variance in terms of jet placement, so make sure the model under consideration has jets in the needed areas. If you’re looking for a lightweight and durable model, opt for a tub with acrylic as its main material. This is a popular choice because it’s cost-effective and holds heat well. Freestanding models with clawfoot detailing and iron legs offer an attractive Victorian look. Units with a shower option are ideal for those with busy lifestyles as they provide the option of a soak or a shower.
