A Bath To Suit Everyone

Jul 17, 2008
Baths have redefined the way we think of personal hygiene ever since they appeared during the Roman times. It was in these Roman times that the first baths were created by Roman builders, but instead of the baths being a relatively small tub the baths were big buildings with a swimming pool type area inside. This is where large amounts of people gathered together and washed, because during the Roman era everybody was happy bathing together, the baths were more like a public building rather than a private bathing area. This sparked a revolution in personal hygiene as before this time health and hygiene were not a priority in life.

After this baths kept on changing and rather than being public buildings where people gathered and chatted, baths became smaller and more private as people started to become more conscious of their own bodies and felt embarrassed.

Today though there are a huge variety of baths available that fit every person's needs and house style. This means that the choice of baths to buy is very large and it can become too confusing on the right size or shape bath you want. It has been made simpler though with separate corner baths made to fit into those tight spaces where a larger more traditional bath would not fit or suit that area. Also, in some houses space is very tight for a large bath as most bathrooms are relatively small. This allows a range of small baths to be created that allows you to bath in confidence and comfort but in a smaller area.

Other more traditional baths are also available in oblong and steel square shapes. This is the most common type of bath and is also the most spacious, allowing you to relax and lay back in total comfort. But these are also more expensive than the smaller and corner baths which is a disadvantage.

New features have also been released for baths over the past few years that help relax and bath. These new extras include a Jacuzzi type system that allows the bath to bubble like a hot tub. This gives a very relaxed feeling and allows you to lie there peacefully while getting a little massage from the water jets.

Another little feature is the bath cushion that attaches to the back of the bath tub where you would have your head. This is because it allows the person in the bath to be able to lay back and be comfortable rather than have to rest your head on the backboard of the bath tub.

These little features add to the experience of bathing and make it much more enjoyable but also cost a little bit more meaning you would have to empty your pocket a bit more to be able to enjoy these add-ons. This is down to the fact that baths are becoming more of a style icon with more extravagant and elegant baths being built all the time with gold and silver trims.

Also for the more private baths there is an option of a bath screen that allows even more privacy when bathing. This means that there is a bath out there to suit everyone's style and needs, and with more and more companies entering the market there has never been more opportunity to find the perfect bath to suit you and your style.
