A soaking bathtub is a bathing tub which is very deep, allowing a bather to comfortably immerse more of her body than is possible in a traditional bathtub. If you want to buy a soaking bathtub, here are several tips for you. Decide whether you want a soaking tub with or without jets. Hydrotherapy jets can help ease tired muscles, while a soaking bathtub without them may offer a more soothing and meditative overall experience. Determine how many people your soaking bathtub should comfortably accommodate. Most soaking bathtubs provide a comfortable experience for either one or two bathers, but some models can accommodate additional bathers as well. Consider the design. Soaking bathtubs come in a range of styles, depths and designs.
You can find soaking bathtubs that are virtually indistinguishable from regular tubs, Greek soaking bathtubs with depths of 22 inches or more, or Japanese ofuro tubs, which are very deep and traditionally made of wood. Review a soaking bathtub online to narrow your choices. Check with local stores that carry bathroom remodeling supplies and tubs to see if they have your choice in stock or if they can order it for you. If not, buy your tub online. Some online stores will give you free shipping when you order a soaking bathtub.
