This bathroom has a full wall of tile on its tub/shower wall, and no tile on the adjacent wall.
Does this look off balance to you? It doesn’t bother me, but I would have preferred to see it everywhere. Perhaps the budget was limited. Or do you think this was intentional?
A full room of a busier tile could certainly be overwhelming. But this soft green almost reads neutral. I love the soothing, natural zen feel it brings to the space.
I also want to point out the pedestal tub. A lot of my clients have the misconception that pedestal tubs are only traditional in style. (Think clawfoot tubs.) This one is clean, minimal and calling my name!
Can you imagine… roll out of bed in the morning and hop in the pool.
I’d like to thank my good friend, Maria, for brightening my dreary, Monday morning with this image.
I’ve been researching bathtubs for a client and came upon this sharp piece made by Aquatic.
This tub features 84 air jets and a very spacious bathing well (71x41x25H.) It’s also decently priced- $ 3,659 from Ira Woods. That’s pretty good as far a freestanding, jetted tubs go. And lets not forget the clean lines and bold red color.
Aquatic offers quite a few color options other than your standard white and biscuit. I’m also liking the rhapsody blue. Now I’m not suggesting you match the tub with colored sink and toilet. No No No. Just a statement tub, thank you.
Aquatic offers a variety of shapes and sizes. Soaking and Jetted Tubs.
I have a confession. I am obsessed with pedestal tubs. I was looking through my bathroom inspiration files today and nearly everyone featured a pedestal tub of some kind. Clawfoot, Modern, Metal… I just love that freestanding look.
I gasp with joy whenever I see a cast iron tub with a metal exterior. Some are zinc tubs, some are aluminum tubs, some are copper tubs (though I prefer a silver finish.) They can be polished, lacquered, burnished, patina-ed. Ok not sure if that last one is a word.
One thing I am sure of is that I am in love with the way a metal tub impacts a bathroom.
Metal tub paired with a pretty marble wall detail. It’s like a headboard, but for your tub, not your bed. Also, who needs a platform ledge for a tub when you can have a little stool instead. So much more versatile, and its another opportunity to express yourself. I like how this chinese stool brought some green into this room. Image via Cococozy.
Ooo lala, how about the combination of the shiny tub against the rustic beadboard? Modern Country Livin’… love it! Designed by David Phoenix via Desire to Inspire.
I don’t know if I would bathe my dog in the pretty tub, but he sure looks cozy in there! I love it paired with a chair and the pretty curtains. Image via Urban Grace Interiors.

The Bateau Tub by Water Monopoly. I want to eat, sleep AND bathe here!
These tubs are great. You have the easy maintenance of cast iron interior, and the vivacious visual effect of the metal exterior.
The only downside is that these tubs are silly expensive. But really folks, bathing is a necesity. People are willing to dole out the big bucks for their luxury cars. Perhaps you should treat yourself to a luxury tub.
