A Japanese style soaking tub is the new 'must-have' when it comes to bathroom fixtures. These small, deep tubs give you an alternative way of bathing, and yet it's something that has been used in Japan for generations. You will find that these tubs also come with a bench inside to allow you to sit there in comfort rather than the method that we are more used to with lying down in the bathtub.
Often handmade, there is something modern about a Japanese style soaking tub. It offers you the opportunity to really relax as much as possible. Climb in, sit down, and just enjoy the feeling of being largely submerged in the water for as long as you are able to keep the water nice and warm.
This is not about lying down and having rubber ducks floating around. It's about soaking in the tub and just allowing all of your stresses and worries to effectively seep away into the water. Add in some soft music and you will have a highly pleasurable experience.
Available in a range of depths, you should be looking at a minimum of 20 inches even though the rest of the tub can vary in size. Easy to plumb in and less expensive than you may have been expecting, if you want to have something different in your bathroom that will give you a real spa experience, then a Japanese style soaking tub is going to be the answer to your prayers. Check out the different styles and options to see which one appeals to you.
