Finally, the time came when the bathroom has already taken such a prominent place in some houses that it is not inferior in design to any other parts of a person’s dwelling in terms of the wealth of design solutions. Of course, especially many opportunities for imagination are provided by the bathroom in private households, in cottages, in houses with individual buildings, as in this case its area usually allows you to install beautiful modern equipment of the best quality in it.
First of all, you need to understand what kind of material is acrylic. It is a polymer with high adhesive properties, made from inorganic raw materials. Like most different plastics, acrylic softens when heated, so you can make baths of any configuration from it. But acrylic and after cooling remains quite flexible and can sag and even crack under load.
The enameled cast iron plumbing is easy to clean and retains heat well. When choosing a bath of cast iron must take into account various parameters.

The hot tub today is already beginning to emerge from the category of luxury plumbing - nowadays you can buy it at an affordable price.

Nowadays, buying a beautiful and comfortable bath of small sizes is quite realistic. There is a huge variety of sanitary ware of this type, differing in design, which allows you to make a purchase that matches the chosen style and is able to accommodate in small areas. You just need to carefully consider the procedure for measuring the size of such products and accurately calculate where they should be in order to fit well into the space reserved for them.
Of course, in a small bath there will not be much space, but it will perform its main functions. As a rule, such baths are no longer than 120 centimeters, and their depth usually does not exceed 85 centimeters. Particularly noteworthy are the sedentary and corner baths, which allow you to significantly save space in small-sized bathrooms.
How to choose a corner bath?
The common opinion that corner baths are installed only to save space in the bathroom is not entirely correct. Angular bath may not always be in the form of an isosceles triangle, rounded on one side. In addition to triangular models, such baths may be in shape both asymmetric polyhedra and rectangles having either a rounded or a beveled corner. There are such products in the left version, and in the right. But one thing is important: they always have two sides mutually perpendicular. What can be different types of corner baths?
- Dimensions. In stores, "triangular" corner baths can be purchased with sides ranging from 90 cm to 200 cm, and "rectangular" - with a width of 70-200 cm. The height of most models is 45-80 centimeters. The smallest are only sit-down baths. In models of medium or large size, you can not only sit, but also lie.
- The method of installation. So, for example, corner baths can be embedded in the podium and wall mounted on the floor.
- The equipment. Corner baths from the “heaped up” series can have a hydromassage, a waterfall faucet, a jet light and soft headrests. But simple models of such plumbing, having the smallest size, of course, do not have such functions.
