Irresistible Bathroom Ideas With Freestanding Bathtub 10

Freestanding bathtubs are quickly becoming a staple of the modern bathroom. Their utility as a centerpiece for a contemporary or antique style bathroom has made them more desirable in recent years. Their versatility will allow you to exhibit a unique twist on your own bathroom. Here are a few ways that you can design your bathroom with your freestanding tub in mind.

1. Create your own spa: Having a freestanding tub in the middle of your bathroom gives the room a feeling of centrality and serenity. By having tapered steps and a flat top on the tub, your everyday bath can quickly turn into a your own personal getaway that combines form and function to produce a tranquil and stylish environment.

2. Make it the unique focal point of your room: Another great way to implement a freestanding tub is by setting it at odd angles in your bathroom. Forget the rectangular shapes that every other home has and go for a completely unique look. This can be accented in several ways by having a nearby cabinet and mirror setup that suits your needs and styles. Another interesting way to a use your tub as a focal point is by putting it inside a glass enclosure, making it stand out, yet apart, from the rest of the room.

3. Nostalgia: One of the hallmarks of an early twentieth century bathroom was a freestanding bathtub. If you are looking to design a home around the concept of antiquity or even a country- style home, there is no better choice than to go for the authentic look of a freestanding tub. If you are really set on replicating the exact bathroom style, you can find a cast iron tub with clawed feet. Or you can take this idea in the opposite direction and create a modern twist on the antique style, fusing old and new together to create a brand new style that mimics the contemporary culture that does the same.
While these are some interesting ideas for utilizing a freestanding bathtub in a modern bathroom, there are many other ways to effectively implement this useful, aesthetically- appealing style that will leave you wondering how you ever survived with only a shower stall.
