As Japanese baths have become better-known in the West, most people associate them with high-end resorts or multi-million dollar luxury homes. Movie stars, five-star hotels, and ritzy spas might have Japanese baths, but an average middle-class home? Not a chance. It would seem that Japanese baths are only for the rich and famous.

Think again. You don't have to be rich to enjoy Japanese baths. If you are interested in relaxing, living stress-free, and enhancing your health, you may want to look again at the price tag associated with a Japanese bath. You may be surprised to find out that you can afford one for yourself.

Prefabricated Japanese baths.

Most Japanese baths are considered a high-end amenity because of several factors. First, they are custom designed. Usually in a Japanese bath installation an interior designer is contracted to design a total bath experience with a sky high budget limit. Thus, the designer has the ability to ring up a bill that matches his high-level services.

Besides, many Japanese baths are created with pricey materials such as stainless steel, copper, mosaic tile, or exotic hardwood. Furthermore, the fact that many Japanese baths are a one-of-a-kind custom-made can have something to do with the high price. Regardless of the fact that many Japanese baths are expensive, there are some that are not. More and more manufacturers are recognizing the market for Japanese baths, and are now designing inexpensive models. As the baths become mainstream, the market price decreases.

Smaller footprint. Lower cost.

Japanese baths don't take up a lot of space. This is another reason why installing a Japanese bath is a good idea. There is no need for a sprawling spa-like bathroom space. All you need is a narrow spot to place the bath, smaller even than a traditional shower. Japanese baths are a great idea for small apartments, lofts, or urban town homes where limited space is an issue.

You Know You Want One. Now What?

Now that you realize that Japanese baths are not a product exclusively purchased by movie stars, how do you go about getting one for your home? Here are a couple suggestions:

1.Wait for your bathroom remodel. When it comes time for the bathroom remodel, it's time to start considering a Japanese bath. Most homeowners choose to remodel the bathroom space every 5-10 years. For your next remodel, opt for a Japanese bath in lieu of expensive tiling or a fancy jet tub.

2.Shop around. When you enter the market for a Japanese bath, do your homework and shop around. You probably won't find a Japanese bath in your local home improvement chain, but there are major spa sellers online.
