Tub choices

For the ladies (or men?) - Which type of tub would you prefer if you had a choice in your master suite? Whirlpool, soaking or vintage type (claw foot, pedestal)?

If you have one of these, do you like it or would you prefer something else? We have a regular vintage tub in our main hall bath, a regular shower in another bathroom and now we're adding a new bathroom from scratch out of a small bedroom. With a regular bath and shower, I can choose what I want for my tub. Any ideas?

Re: Tub choices

I have a whirlpool tub for years and years, never been in it once.

I have never been in one - I imagine they are a lot like small hot tubs? I think that would be fun in a master suite

RLD - That's what I'm afraid of - Will I put it in there and will it be all bulky, yet never use it. Or should I just go ahead and go for a clean sleek look of a regular tub. Decisions decisions.

My wife lives in it though. It's just not for me. I'd rather have a steam room.

Re: Tub choices

Simple, clean, elegant. And deep.

Forget the mechanics. They have a limited lifespan and, bank on it... will be problematic eventually.

Save the whirlpools for the weekend getaways and let someone else deal with it. If you want to splurge on something that you will really appreciate for a long time - look into radiant heating in the floor or maybe a decent sound system in there - or one of those behind-the-mirror TV's.

Never thought of it like that. Good point. I do like the heated floor idea. Discussion time with my H

Re: Tub choices

Yeah the mirror-tv is a bad idea now that I think about it. That will probably be dated the day you install it.

I just fear I'd never emerge from the bathroom if I did that - It's quiet, away from the rest of the house, tucked into a little corner in our bedroom... they'd never find me

Re: Tub choices

When we renovate our bathroom I want one of those nice big two person tubs. One that has some jets maybe, and that you fill and empty each time you use it. DOn't know if that's what you mean by whirlpool tub or not, but I have wanted one for years. I LOVE baths but a regular tub is too small and the wrong shape for me to really relax in.

Yep... That's what I think I want... But they have a really nice large soaker at our local habitat store... It's really nice, big a sleek... A fraction of the price. And then someone has an antique pedestal tub for sale dirt cheap... Needs refinishing, which is not dirt cheap. I have a blank canvas for our bathroom, its fun but now I don't know what to put in there

This is what my wife has - she's a bath addict - won't take a shower period. Me - I don't take baths so I can't report personally but I know my wife loves it. If you go this route think about the amount of water it takes to fill it and the amount of HOT water it takes also. When my wife fills her tub up I can't take a shower for an hour and we have a huge water heater. Oh and get the heater that will be an option with the jets - if you're in this far don't quit there. When you hit those jets all the air drops the heat of the water much faster than you would think.

Oh - downside - my son thinks it's his swimming pool and there is a collection of toy boats in my master bath that I fear may be permanent.

Re: Tub choices

^^^ We are looking at a standard size (60x32)... So I think the hot water will be okay. We've already decided the kids have their own bath tub... Mommy's tub is off limits! lol
