Why Bathtub Party Day?
Bathtubs go way back in history and even then bathtub was considered a luxury. The earliest discovery of bathtub dates back to 1700 BCE in Crete. John Michael Kohler the cofounder of the Kohler company is credited with the invention of the world’s first bathtub. He used a cast-iron horse trough and attached four decorative feet to it followed by an enamel finish to create a claw foot design.
By the end of World War I, the construction boom in America increased the installation and demands for modern bathtubs, toilets and sinks in American homes. However, in 1921, outhouses continued to be the norm in rural America and only 1% of the population had indoor plumbing facilities, and bathtubs were obviously way out of the picture.
The popular clawfoot tub design slowly began to evolve into the modern-day built-in tubs with an apron front. In the pursuit of making our lives colourful in 1928, the crane company launched coloured sanitary wares into the US market. The then-popular enclosed bathtubs were low maintenance and the incorporation of colours in sanitary ware opened up the possibility of designing your bathroom in style. In recent years the built-in tubs are being replaced by freestanding trendier tubs. The materials employed for these modern bathtubs include lightweight acrylic, resin stone or solid surface bathtubs.
It’s a fact that an elegant bathtub can transform your bathroom into a piece of art. Having a bath also is an asset when it comes to increasing property and house value. Buyers who are looking forward to landing a property that is suitable for family and children tend to look out for a bath.
A hot water bath has also been proven to have many health benefits. Soaking in hot water above your chest level can improve lung capacity and oxygen intake. The hot water improves blood circulation and the steam generated can clear your sinuses and chest. It can also relieve muscle pain and cramps by acting as a heat pack. So you don’t have to run to a masseuse, to relieve that impossible cramp, you just have to visit your buddy bathtub to give you a quick fix.
Immersing yourself in an aromatic mix of suds is just the treatment you need after a stressful day or week. While you are at it, you can even enjoy your favourite book, provided that you are not butterfingers. If you are not a floating-in-water-bookworm but more of a party person, then go ahead and bring the party to your bathtub!
