What is a soaking tub?
In the simplest terms, soaking tubs are extra-deep tubs that are great for long, deep soaking. A soaking tub can either have a clawfoot or a pedestal that rests directly on the floor. In terms of installation, you really have a lot of options: there are freestanding soaking tubs and soakers that can be dropped in a pre-constructed platform, or placed against a wall. It can be either a left, right or center drain bathtub so you have more flexibility in its placement.
How deep is a soaking tub?
As far as size is concerned, soaking tubs blow regular tubs out of the water, with some topping out at 90 inches in length and 76 inches in width—big enough to accommodate two bathers. Some have extra-deep frames wherein the bather has to soak upright, like the Japanese soaking tubs.
What is the best soaking tub to buy?
Many people buy soaking tubs because they offer a therapeutic experience and a unique opportunity to unwind in total luxury. They vary in form and size; in fact, some can accommodate two bathers like a 2 person soaking tub which you can enjoy with a loved one.
So it would really depend on your lifestyle or needs. If you are after the design, soaking bathtubs are available in an assortment of bathtub shapes: square, egg-shaped, irregular and the usual rectangular soaking tub. In terms of bathtub materials, the acrylic soaking tub is one of the best sellers. Its warm-to-touch property and smooth glossy coating perfectly complement any soaking tub.
