Copper Soaking Tub

Copper Soaking Tub

There are two versions of a colonial copper soaking tub as far as I know. The soaking tub was meant for one or two persons. Differences between both copper tub styles are not that great but still important. A tub for one usually has a drain hole located on the bottom at one end. Larger tubs designed for two bathers will most often have the hole cutout right on the center. It makes using the bathtub much more convenient. In case of a single soaking copper tub, depending on the design one end wall might be taller than the one you would normally have your legs positioned. But as I said, it depends on the tub styling. Some of them are elevated on a decorative or plain base separating the soaking tub from the floor. It has its advantages and vice versa. It is much easier to place plumbing connections underneath and hide them from the view of anybody entering the bathroom. Such configuration may be important when installing the tub with a pedestal in American style somewhere in a middle of the room. Indeed, there are some soaking copper tub buyers who prefer to have a metal pipe connecting it to the house drain visible as they think it is cool looking. This kind of plumbing fixture connection is most often used in lofts and contemporary houses.

A benefit of double slipper copper soaking tub is having two occupants in mind characterizes either the same height all around the lip or what is more typical two end walls taller than the middle. It serves two purposes especially when the tub is placed on fixed stand which is usually more less four inches tall adding that to the tub height overall. Taller walls make more conformable for two people seat in it while the low section makes more accommodating to get in and get out of the soaking tub.

Regardless vessel sink or soaking tub design and shape, Custom Made buyers are presented with a number of useful options when looking at the tub on its detail product page. You select tub width and choose patina color finishing. You can also request special customizing the tub further by adding a useful over flow fixture made of copper and welded permanently to the tub using a special torch. Based on prior experience ti takes on average five weeks to fabricate a soaking tub from copper and ship to the US and Canada destinations.

The dining tables and chairs are made of cherry wood in the Mexican state of Jalisco. The seating section is covered with thick pig skin painted red or dark brown occasionally called tobacco color. Our chairs are very simple but at the same time strong, making them applicable not only for a residential veranda but also for restaurants and bars in Southeastern style. The “equipal” collection of outdoor dining furniture from Mexico collection includes chairs, tables, bar stool, dining rooms sets for residential and commercial use. All of our seats from “equipal” furniture are barrel-shaped, lightweight and comfortable. An important feature of equipales is that the leather is customarily made from pigskin, not cowhide. There are no filler woods used in the leather parts and we still use the pigskin preferably because it allows air circulation and does not harden and crack the way bovine leather does.

The other category for outdoor dining furniture is the collection of hand-made aluminum chairs and table sets produced with traditional techniques. The sand casting was known to man for thousands of years and used for producing kitchenware and other home improvement products. Most aluminum outdoor dining furniture includes four chairs and a round table. You can also find some models in a set for six diners. The surface is hand painted in a rustic manner using a few paints once over another creating a unique, vintage look. You can choose among five colors that will pair best with your outdoor settings but you can also customize your order and require different size or colors to create the perfect ambiance in your exteriors with a pop of colors and comfort that will invite anyone for relaxing leisure time.
