Modern bathtubs

Freestanding bathtubs

Most of the bathtubs you’ll see are built into a wall, which means they’re attached and can’t be moved. To be fair, that’s generally the easiest option. But there’s another interesting way to go: the freestanding bathtub.

  • It’s the most modern option for more traditional bathtubs.
  • Installing a freestanding tub will help you achieve a more open, borderless space. The bathtub will be a reference point in your bathroom’s decor. The simplicity of its lines also makes it a decorative element with a lot of sophistication and elegance.
  • Because it plays such a big role in the decoration, you can even look at a freestanding bathtub as a piece of art. If you want to make sure of that, you should be careful to make sure you pick out the right colors and finishes.

Vintage copper bathtubs

Copper is one of the most under-used materials in interior design. That has a lot to do with the fact that it has an unfinished look. But copper also has an amazingly unique personality that makes it a great resource for small decorations and larger pieces, like vintage bathtubs.

Because earth tones are warm colors, they create a nostalgic sense of warmth. That distinctive metallic glow will also change the color a bit depending on the lighting in the room. All these things make a copper bathtub a great option if you want a totally unique bathroom.

Vintage copper bathtubs allow you to bring the raw, rustic feeling of the copper to your clean, sterile bathroom environment. Copper is extremely versatile, and it can go well with a lot of different decorations and styles. That includes anything from traditional designs, Mediterranean decor, an industrial or rustic style, etc…

Vintage copper bathtubs are actually in pretty high demand right now.

Is wood an option?

Wood isn’t a material you’ll see many people recommend for bathroom decor. But thanks to new technology and new kinds of wood on the market, it’s starting to become more common even in the dampest room in your home. There’s no better example of that than wooden bathtubs.

These tubs are genuine works of art. Because of how complicated they are to make and the distinct wood grain on each of them, they’re completely unique. Most are handmade, and you’ll generally have to commission one specifically for you.

They’re a perfect, elegant option for you if you want to have a highly sophisticated bathroom. One of the biggest pros of this kind of bathtub is that you can then use wood for the rest of your decor in the room. In the end, your goal should always be to design a balanced, warm room.

Transparent bathtubs

Fully transparent bathtubs are one of the most unique trends in modern interior design. They’re either made out of glass or a similar material. Their stand-out characteristic is that they allow you to see clearly in and out of the tub.

This kind of tub is a faithful reflection of minimalist philosophyThey completely get rid of the traditional structure of a bathtub and use 100% transparent materials. They always come in bold, avant-garde designs, and go really well in sophisticated, modern bathrooms.
