HISTORY OF BATHUBS

The first documented installation for bathing dates back to the year 3300 BC with the discovery of copper water pipes beneath a palace in the Indus valley at the ancient India. Evidences of the first personal-size bath, were found on the island of Crete, where 1.5 m long bath was made of hardened ceramics. This bath is probably the precursor of the classic bathtubs of the 19th century.

Around 500 BC Romans were encouraged to bathe daily in the public baths. Private bathtubs were usually similar to small pools, which occupied the entire room. Romans used for the manufacture of bathtubs, marble, lead and bronze for pipes. They also created a comprehensive sanitation. The Roman Empire was the first to set the bath for modern personal hygiene.

In 1883 it began the Standard Sanitary Manufacturing Company and Kohler Company to produce cast-iron baths. Everyone knew what a bath is, but a lot of people at that time had never bathed in the tub. But people take baths because they were hygienic, with smooth-cleaning surfaces that prevent the spread of disease. At the end of the First World War, the United States experienced a boom in construction and modern bathroom got a new concept. Bathrooms before the first world war were mostly transformed bedroom or spare room that were not originally designed for the bathroom. Complete bathroom with a toilet, sink and tub were typical for almost 100% of new homes in the late 20th century, while in 1921 it was only 1 percent. In the second half of the 20th century the once popular claw foot tub turned to a built-in bathtub with a small front apron. This type provides easier maintenance and the emergence of colored sanitary ware where given more options for interior design.
