  • Bathtubs - Which Type?

    Bathtubs- do you have them? What kind?

    Had some problem deciding where this thread should go. Anyway, got to thinking about bathtubs... has anyone tried/ own a Japanese sitting type (ie. instead of the long languorous normal bathtubs). More space efficient and water saving yet submerges whole body in hot water too... except you can't stretch out.

    *Plots to somehow fit a freestanding bathtub hopefully... bath bombs are so fun! Anyway... 3rm flats have bigger PUB subsidies... right?*

    *Edited Subject Title

      Haha.. This is a good one.. I've a bath tub at home which is in my mum's room and she doesn't really approve us of bathing in there.. Anyway, i always rush during bathing so there's really no need to soak in a bath tub.. No time!!

      Hmm... perhaps in the future.. if i've a house of my own...

        Sometimes I think this kinda indulgence are only when you're travelling. When at home, there always seems to be not enuff time to relax and take a bath!!

              Ummm... the japanese style bath -tub sounds great.

              Will definitely have a bath-tub in my own house in future. Right now, I can only dream :dizzy: Otherwise, I just 'hop' over to use my bf's mom's

                i used to take baths all the time when i was younger [i actually thought showers were queer!!!] cos i could actually 'float' in the water and it was so fun but now its just a big waste of water to me and i find it rather dirty. make sure there is a huge ledge at your tub though, then you can put all the barang barang. candles and what have you

                    Actually had baths every single day in UK... because the $%^** water heater was damaged and the landlord wouldn't repair it for the longest time. It shot ice-cold water and scalding hot water in 2 sec intervals (I timed it), in WINTER arghh! Baths were the only way to get round the demonic, possessed heater.
                    And then... I got UTI. :roll: For the 1st time in my life! Freaked me out cos I didn't know what it was at first, and after some research, I realised... surprise, surprise, baths are one of the more obscure triggers of this condition.

                    Baths are still nice though, when I visited some friends in Japan and stayed in the tiny office dorms, the tiny bathrooms had the Jap style sitting tub. Didn't use it cos water is expensive... but surprised me cos it adapted to such tight space constraints!

                      Agree that normally we wld only soak in the long bath when travelling...
                      I've a bath tub which is in my mom's room too...
                      Normally she wld allow me to bathe there as well as make use of the bath tub but again usually i would only do that when im super free..so thats like once in a blue moon..keke

                        i have a bath tub with a sizeable ledge at the back so there is enough space for my junk but i haven't taken any bubble baths or soaks since i was a kid...i find it's a waste of water

                        OT but my mother bought me a PINK bathtub..my toilet & sink is the same shade of pink :roll:

                          Plot plot!!!! A tub is a must!!!!

                          We've got a garden tub at the SO's apartment. It's wide and oval shaped and has plenty of space for my assorted barang barang on the sides of the tub.

                          I like it better than the conventional bathtub because there's more space to move around in and you don't feel quite so cramped in it.

                            yeah....friend was telling me that the hot water kills off the bacterials that maintains a healthy balance down *there*...hence increasing the risk of infection...

                              i love soaking in a tub! i have been lucky enough to have had my my own bathtub in all my bathrooms ever since i was 4, 5 years old so i have the habit of soaking in a bubble filled tub regularly. i seem to have them more regularly when i was younger though. had time for weekly soaks back in primary and secondary school days but as i grew older, these grew less frequent as i have less time. now i probably do it only once a month. love my LM creme brulee honey bath which is absolutely decadant and smells so yummy. mmmm.....
