Are you renovating your bathroom and going for a new look? As you think of more unique decorative items, one to consider is a copper tub. It makes
for an eye-catching item in your bathroom. Copper tubs are becoming popular in many homes. You can pair them with stone tile or fresh need hardwood floors to portray
a nice modern luxury style look in your home. These would also look great in a master bedroom. From a cleaning standing copper tubs are a smart choice. They essentially heal
themselves, which means any scratches that occur darken and blend back into the tub because of the lived-in copper finish.
Since copper tubs are more unique than basic tubs, they do tend to cost a little bit more. They are great for an avid soaker who bathes daily
or weekly in addition to someone looking to decorate their bathroom in an elegant modern way. We want to make sure you have options when choosing a copper bathtub. Below are some of your options:
Freestanding: Freestanding copper tubs make for an easy installation since there is not alcove or drop in installation methods to follow. Choose where you want the tub to go, coordinate
the plumbing needed, and you should be all set. You might also consider a slipper or double slipper copper tub. The slipper feature on the tub means that one side is elevated which is
often the side in which you would lay your head when bathing. A double slipper is great for two people bathing due to both ends being elevated. If you know you will be bathing with your
partner often, go with the double slipper.
Undermount: Freestanding tubs made of copper are far and away the most popular; however, you also might consider an undermount tub as well. Undermount refers to the installation method.
This means the copper tub is installed into a deck that is currently in the bathroom or the deck is constructed around the undermount tub. This requires a bit more installation work
than the freestanding tub but makes for a clean look.
