I agree that it is a western style (and an ugly one with tile on the face)... many, many shapes exist depending on year, budget, and preferance.The one I was in wasn't much more than 24x24 and deep. I think it had a seat in it. The one in the photo looks like a western bathtub.
I actually had a customer request for an Asian style toilet, and one of the lines in the brochure claimed it was a "natural way' to actually use the toilet....maintain good health, etc. Now.....if you have arthritis, how is that possible?Toilet doesn't have to meet the ADA standard...:whistling
Sounds like a fun project. Make sure you get some pics before, during and after. :thumbsup:I am working with a Japanese couple to put in a Japanese style bath in their basement (along with the rest of the basement finish). A quick summary of their requirements:
~ Three rooms: 1. Half bath 2. Dressing area (separated by sliding doors from the other two 3. Deep soaking tub (exactly like the ones above) and open shower.
~ One sink in room 1, one sink in room 2. Toilet in room 1.
~ Each room needs to be separated
Apparently it is part of the culture for a family to bathe (sp?) and shower together, however, the toilet is unclean and should be far away.
Kind of a cool project since most bathrooms these days are basically the same.
