vasca da bagno moderna Vicenza Verona

Welcome to this WIKI page! In this wikipelli we will talk to you about bathtubs, linking all the articles on the site that talk about the subject and various achievements. Ready? Let's get started!

The bathtub

Immersing oneself in a bathtub to wash is an ancient ritual, it brings back the sensations we feel when we enter the sea or a lake. The water supports us and our muscles relax, we become children again, we play with the water, we move our hands and move it, we create waves. If we submerge our heads under the water up to our ears, leaving our noses out to breathe, noises become distant and we are even more in touch with our deepest selves. In the bath, we feel the power of the water, which can calm us down or give us energy, in the case of the hydromassage.

We've come a long way from the vat...

Normal bath or whirlpool bath?

The whirlpool bath had its moment of glory in the 1990s when, thanks to its beneficial effects, it was included in all new bathrooms. Derived from the ancient practice of hydrotherapy, the hydromassage represents a privileged instrument to achieve psychophysical well-being. The body immersed in a hydromassage tub is in fact subjected to the pressure of water and air that come out of special nozzles. But in addition to these benefits, hydromassage stimulates blood circulation, tones the skin and tissues, relaxes the muscles...

That's why it is so popular with athletes, who take advantage of it after sustaining heavy physical stress, obtaining a pleasant feeling of well-being. Whirlpool baths are equipped with control panels on the edge of the bath, which allow you to memorise personalised programmes, control and maintain a constant water temperature, and increase or decrease the power of the jets.

The new methacrylate bathtubs

Since the bathtub began to be produced industrially, its appearance and ergonomics have improved considerably, meeting the tastes and practical needs of all users.

However, we had to wait until the discovery of methacrylate to obtain a comfortable, moulded, welcoming and equipped bathtub with a richer design and easy maintenance.

The shapes of bathtubs

The variety of shapes of bathtubs available today is due to technical evolution and experimentation with new materials. The use of resins and plastics has made it possible to change the shape of the casing: if traditionally the bathtub was only rectangular, today we have round bathtubs, corner bathtubs, even bathtubs that can hold up to three or four people.

Even more interesting is the evolution of the internal anatomical design. If this was once completely absent, today we have tubs designed to be more comfortable, with non-slip bottoms, with armrests and headrests, with handles and built-in seat.

A large, comfortable corner bath takes its place in this totally renovated bathroom: the comfort of the headrest will make bathing a moment of pure relaxation.

Bathtub coverings

Here, too, we have seen considerable changes over the decades. We've gone from the steel bathtub surrounded by brick walls which were then covered in tiles (the standard in the 1970s and 1980s) to panelled bathtubs and up to modern versions of masonry bathtubs covered with large stoneware slabs.

How do you choose a bathtub?

There are many possibilities, and we are available to discuss the various choices with you: you will have to decide whether you want a stand-alone bathtub or whether you prefer the bathtub to be covered like the rest of the bathroom, whether you prefer the romantic style of a cast-iron bathtub with feet or whether you want to enjoy the benefits of a whirlpool bathtub... in short, come and visit us in our two shops in Vicenza and together we will find the right solution with a customised bathroom project. We'll figure out how to position the tub, what size is right for you, what shape and colour to buy and, if necessary, how to personalise it for you.
