20 BEAUTIFUL BATHTUB IDEAS TO INSPIRE YOUR DREAM REMODEL: The best place to rest and relax is in a bathtub. When looking for the right tub for you, here are some important things to keep in mind: For how long will the water stay warm? Does it go deep enough or long enough for your body? Is it simple to enter and leave? That being said, there are important things to think about when picking out a tub for the room. Does it match? Does the stuff go together or not? Is it going to last? (After all, bathtubs can be a good buy.)
20 BEAUTIFUL BATHTUB IDEAS TO INSPIRE YOUR DREAM REMODEL
1. ZEN-INDUCING CEDAR BATHTUB
Zen Bathworks makes the Ofuro tub out of cedar in Alaska. It stands out in the bathroom of a home built by Electric Bowery in Deer Valley, Utah. It was meant to look like an underground Japanese onsen, so the walls are black limestone and the roof is dark wood. The parts are made by Waterworks.
2. BOLD HONED MARBLE BATHTUB
A-List Our Hope Thrift business Studio Shamshiri added ‘a kiss of blue’ to every room in this California home, even the master bathroom. An honed green marble was used to make this handmade bathtub. It was then painted with a blue marine-grade paint that is waterproof.
3. SIMPLE STATEMENT BATHTUB
If your toilet faces the outdoors, don’t add too many fancy things to the tub. In a Los Angeles home designed by Studio Mellone and built by Woods + Dangaran, this simple, stand-alone one by Waterworks is in a peaceful, quiet area.
4. JAPANESE-STYLE SOAKING TUB
A custom-made Japanese soaking tub, or ofuro, by Bartok Design Co. is the main bathtub in another California home created by Studio Shamshiri. The wood for the tub is cut in a style called yutori, which makes the logs’ grain smooth and free of knots.
5. MATCHING MARBLE BATHTUB
Is it possible to have too much good stuff? When it comes to marble, no. Nicole Hollis created a house in San Francisco with a main bathroom that has a custom tub made of Arabescato Corchia marble.
6. A CLAWFOOT WITH A TWIST
The bathtub by the Water Monopoly in a Toronto home designed by Sam Sacks is a modern take on the traditional claw-foot tub. It has round green feet. The textured zellige tile on the walls makes the room feel even more like a spa.
7. JADE GREEN TILED TUB
Designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard, who is on the A-List for Our Hope Thrift, didn’t just cover the walls and floors of this Hawaiian bathroom in Moroccan zellige tile. The inside and outside of the tub both have the same jade-green tile.
8. SCENIC BATHTUB
Another great thought? Keep your tub simple and put an artistic, relaxing background around it. Le Whit sent us this beautiful example of a simple bowl set against a stunning background of mountains made of de Gournay’s Thousand Li of Rivers and Mountains wallcovering, merlot tiles, and burgundy marble.
9. TERRAZZO BATHTUB
Terrazzo is the star of this ultramodern main bathroom in a home built by Lake | Flato in San Antonio. In this case, the material is on the bathroom, the washbasin and the floor with the stripes.
10. TRADITIONAL AND TRANQUIL TUB
This California home was designed by Gary McBournie. The freestanding tub is surrounded by peaceful art and decorations, such as the picture by Dale Goffigon. If you have the wall space, do the same thing.
11. CLASSIC CLAW-FOOT TUB
Classic doesn’t mean stuffy. This very stylish idea comes from Retrouvius, an A-List company for ELLE DEOR. In this Parisian apartment’s main bathroom, a vintage claw-foot tub stands out against sea-green tiles by Emery et Cie.
12. SHIMMERING SILVER BATHTUB
You can’t say “glamour” without a tub full of bubbles. Why not step it up a notch with a shiny metal basin? This cast-iron one is in the main bathroom of a Florida home designed by Rodney Lawrence, who is on the Our Hope Thrift A-List. It shines like silver and has a ceiling that looks like raindrops.
13. CRISP WHITE BASIN
Tiffany Howell designed Mara Brock Akil’s home in Los Angeles. The main bathroom has a white tub that goes well with the natural colours in the room. Plus, the plant in the pot adds a touch of the tropics to the design.
14. COMBINED SHOWER AND BATHTUB
Want to get even better at having the best of both worlds? You might want to cover your shower and bathroom in a striking, one-color tile. Our Hope Thrift A-List designer Michelle R. Smith chose a pale blue tile by Quemere Designs that was made just for her son’s bathroom. This is the cutest place to splash and splish because it has a small oil picture and funny block letters.
15. CALM CORNER BATHTUB
A “bite size” bathtub can fit in a small bathroom, which is why we love how Smith did it in her master bedroom. Farrow & Ball’s Orange Coloured White, which has a hint of yellow, was used to paint the walls.
The New York project by Miles Redd and David Kaihoi has a marble bathroom. The base is made of wood panels, which give it a country feel. The duck-egg paint job goes well with the striped wall covering and wall trim that matches.
17, EGG-SHAPED BATHTUB
The owners of this Mill Valley, California, home that Noz Nozawa created love this bathroom. It’s their favourite room, and for good reason. This Waterworks tub has an egg-shaped shape that lets its users soak up all the comfort. The artist adds, “The couple tried on a lot of different bathtubs before they decided on this one.”
18.SLEEK AND MODERN BATHTUB
Rich materials are used in this bathroom in architect Luis Fernandez’s Los Angeles home. The handmade walnut cabinets and Ann Sacks wall tiles make the room look luxurious. So, the sleek tub is a bit of a palate cleanser amidst all the flavour.
19.SAGE GREEN SOAKING TUB
Frances Merrill of Reath Design made a mirrored green background for the deep Signature Hardware bathtub in a dreamy California Tudor. The pendant from Atelier Areti makes the scene look balanced.
20. WIDE, RECTANGULAR BATHTUB
We can almost feel the subtropical breeze blowing into this home in Sydney that was created by Tamsin Johnson. In this case, she chose an oval bathtub that is the right size for the two casement windows and is placed just right to take in the amazing views.
