Vivien Guyot December 1, 2019 Bathtub
Drop-in tubs are not really tubs. The term refers to tub shells, adjusted inside a solid enclosure matching the rest of the bathrooms decor (colors, tiles, or cabinets). Have in mind that you’ll have to purchase both items separately (the tub and the enclosure), which can cost much more than buying a regular bathtub.
One more option is cast iron tub that will add something vintage to the general look of the bathroom especially if you choose a free standing one. Originally garden bathtubs were popular in France placed right in the gardens in order to let one’s eyes feast on the flowers and blossom around. Nowadays people retained this idea in large bathtubs placed right below the big window. If you want to preserve this look of tranquility in the bathroom, add a few plants and make sure there’s enough light.
The lighting can make or break the ambiance of any room, and your family bathroom is no exception. An illuminated mirror or a good task lighting above the sink is ideal for early mornings, while a soft light would be perfect for relaxing baths. So consider placing your lights on a dimmer switch so you can have just the right lighting you want whenever you want it.
If you want your bathroom look really sophisticated and chic think of a free-standing tub. Due to the fact it needs no support from outside you can place it right in the middle of your bathroom as if it’s some work of art. You may also complement this lavish look with bright feet finish like brass or silver. This way you’ll create romantic look close to Victorian times, but you may also choose a flat-bottom tub, which looks very modern and state-of-the-art. A variety of shapes is numerous.
Nowadays range of options for bathtub design is considerable. Every person chooses the best one corresponding to his or her needs. So if you are lucky parents, have a dog, or just like simplicity and practical things you may decide on the alcove tub. Even if it doesn’t look very extravagant or opulent, you still can add some elements into the general design which will create a perfect fusion of chic and performance.
Among all the variants available in bathtub design there is one that can be applied to any style you could ever imagine. Whether you want to create something luxuriously Royal or you’re more up to cutting edge modern design, drop-in style is the very right decision for you.
