Over the last several years the bathroom has been transformed from a small room, simply designed for necessity to a luxurious escape. Many homeowners choose to have large bathrooms with high end features and elegant lighting.
Today, I wanted to share with you several styles of bath tubs that can be incorporated into any bathroom to add relaxation and an overall spa effect.
The Freestanding Tub
These tubs have made their way into many traditionally designed homes. They feature sleek edges and deep space to soak. Many freestanding tubs include a shower head attachment for convenience along with the traditional faucet. Homeowners choose these tubs to add a clean, modern look to their bathroom escapes.
Clawfoot tubs were made popular in the late 19th century. Today, many homeowners will choose a clawfoot tub to add a touch of antique style to an otherwise modern bathroom. It is possible to find true antique clawfoot tubs, but most people today opt for the newly designed option. Regardless of whether you choose new or old, clawfoot tubs add antique appeal to any modern bathroom.
The term garden tub is thought to have originated from the 18th century. The wealthy would place large soaking tubs out in their gardens to enjoy nature as they relaxed in the bath. Today, garden tubs are nestled in corners or nooks and contain built in shelving that surrounds the tub. Many homeowners choose this style tub to add coziness and warmth to their bathrooms.
