Bath Tub Series Part Three: Free Standing Bath Tubs

Bath Tub Series: Part Three

Which Free Standing Bath Tub is Your Favorite?

Are you feeling clean yet? You should, because in this series on bath tubs, I have shown you thirty-two photos of bath tubs with sixteen more in this blog. The bath tubs are all free standing tubs; the last three are soaking tubs. Get ready to marvel at the beautiful bath tubs shown below. Don’t be shy, jump on in!

IMG_0001 photo one^

^This photo with a Victorian-ish bath tub and two dozen long stem roses oozes romance. It makes me think of Valentine’s Day. Don’t miss the details on the floor.

photo three^

^That is a hand painted band around the bath tub above. I would like to see a matching band of color going around the tub base.

photo five^

^Look! The champagne has been poured and there are bubbles in the tub! What are you waiting for?

Note: This bath tub appears to be identical to the bath tub in photo two, though a handsome handrail has been an added to the side of this one giving it a totally different look.

^Doesn’t this stone bath tub look inviting?

^Tile that compliments the floor in this bathroom has been applied to the sides of this free standing bath tub creating an upscale look.

photo eight^

^I love how the tile on the floor is shaped to create an area for this free standing bath tub. What is interesting, the bath tub does not touch the floor since it is mounted into a wooden base. Don’t you love the mirror and the tiled wall on which it is hung? Also the great candles. We just need to borrow the champagne and bubbles from photo five!

photo nine^

^The iron feet on this bath tub gives it an old-fashioned/Victorian look.

IMG_0024

photo ten^

^Who wants a very chic, transparent, and pink free standing bath tub? I am not sure it is actually pink or if the color changed during the printing process. What a great design shape for a tub.

IMG_0010

photo eleven^

^You can even have a free standing infinity tub as seen above.

IMG_0049

photo twelve^

^In the photo above, I love the niche created for this free standing bath tub with a convenient shelf at each end of the bath tub.

IMG_0013 photo thirteen^

^The bath tub above reminds me of the shape of a laundry room sink that is on legs. Do you know what I am talking about? Though I like having a sliding glass door leading to a deck, photo 13 is my least favorite of the sixteen bath tubs.

Below are examples of three soaking tubs which have gained popularity in recent years. Photo 14 is my favorite of the three. I love the thickness of the wall of the tub. IMG_0041 photo fourteen^

Thanks for viewing my blog. I have one more post left in my bath tub series. It will focus on mistakes to avoid. If you are so inclined or maybe no so inclined, please leave a comment and tell me which bath tub is your favorite.

I have not added the source of some of the photos I posted in this blog because I do not know where it came from. If you will email me and tell me the source or ask me to remove the image, I will take care of it.

Whoa! Now these are the most magical of bathrooms! Number 5 is the ultimate in luxury. The dreamy drapes with the over-sized candle sconces...fabulous! It reminds me of a high-end bed and breakfast with all the bells and whistles. I want to visit that house! The soaking tubs are really great too. Who am I kidding? I love them all!

This post was fun and shows more of your personality! Can't wait for our post together on Friday!

These tubs are all so gorgeous--don't think I could possibly pick a favorite. I want them all! (Better build a bigger house first...) ;-)

sigh ... my bathroom seems to inadequate now. Oh, for 20 grand, and more room. But my townhouse neighbors might object to me pushing into their unit!

I love photo #4. Looks like copper bottom tub with the window over the tub. I can just see myself relaxing and soaking in that one and enjoying the nature at the same time. So many beautiful pictures. Enjoyed your blog.

My fave is number 8. I have a claw foot tub in my master bath, and I LOVE it. It totally sold the house ;-)

The Villa Decor bath tub is the one I love.
I have the same (or similar) one in my weekend home.
I love it so much that I'm thinking of using the same tub in my new home.
Thank you for sharing your pictures and for leaving a comment on Velvet and Linen!
