9 glorious tubs: Draw yourself a fantasy bath and stay a while #Decor & Decorating#bathrooms#bathtub November 14 2011 | Offbeat Editors offbeatbride Source: alifemorefabulous.blogspot.com BATHS ARE THE BEST! The years I spent living in dorms, I was much more upset about my lack of bathtub than about my inability to have pets, or my inability to make out with my boyfriend in peace, or my inability to afford anything. All I wanted most of the time was a nice bath. Happily, I've never been without a tub since leaving school — and the tub I have now is very, very deep. But that doesn't mean I can't fantasize about the best part of my home; that walk-in bath is the epitome of luxury, to me. I like the cut of the rest of these tubs' jib… Honestly, I don't know why more tubs aren't built like this one with a clear glass sides. It would make the bathroom seem much more spacious — and if you look closely you can see this is a super deep tub. What can I do to make my uncomfortable tub more conducive to a relaxing soak? My apartment's bathtub is not conducive to a relaxing soak. The back wall of the tub goes straight up at a ninety degree angle, with a little ledge before the… Read More Ooh, what about this completely transparent tub? The Jason IC635P tub is available in three translucent colors: Arctic Blue, Glacier Green and Frost. And it features a stainless steel support structure, plus a chromatherapy system featuring two synchronized LED lights! Asymmetrical soaking tub is asymmetrical… and fucking awesome! I've always wanted an indoor/outdoor pool, but I'd settle for a bathtub that looks like the continuation of the pool. This is gorgeous. Ooh, this is the first time I've seen handcrafted wrought iron detail wrap around a bathtub. This is some artsy soak-y goodness. Oh hey there cedar wood tub, I want to install you in my fictional cabin in the woods and soak in you in front of a roaring fire and watch the snow fall from a nearby window. That's all. Speaking of installing bathtubs in front of fires in cozy cabins… Who wouldn't want to share this heart-shaped "Eros" tub with your lovah? I'm not exactly sure what's going on with this one! I think it's a Japanese soaking tub. But I hope it's super deep. That would be awesome — standing bath! Butt bench: A party in your bathtub for your butt I am a complete bath junkie.

Decisions… Reply I miss having a Japanese-style bathroom where you are able to clean yourself BEFORE soaking in the tub. If I ever win the lotto, I'm going to renovate my bathroom to allow for this option. Something like this: http://ameblo.jp/totlremakehome/entry-10483467552.html Reply I so agree. I always feel I have to take a shower, then scrub out the tub, before I can take a bath, and by that point I'm like "why bother?" It's one of the things I am a bit OCD about. I like the first and second tubs best! Reply I always just do the opposite. I soak in the tub for the comfort. Then, when I'm ready to get out, I start draining the tub and rinse off all the grime. Reply Yeah but then it's like you're soaking in filth the whole time which grosses me out haha. Reply Kinda like a YOU "stew". 😉 Marinating in my own filth is not my bag, yo. I too want them all. Especially the first one. My god what I would do for a new big deep tub… Reply I also admired that glass-sided tub on Pinterest, but then I started thinking about how much work it would be to keep clean! Reply My glass shower doors get nicely clean with minimal scrubbing using bicarb soda. That stuff is amazing. /enabling Reply *swoon* Reply The second one. Ohhhh my god the second one. I would never leave my bathroom. One of my most treasured dreams is a tub big enough for both the Viking and I to be in at the same time…someday! Reply Ooh, my favorite is the second one, although I do like the idea about the warm stone basin… My dream tub has always been a big, deep, irregularly-shaped cutom number made of natural stone (or, I guess, cement made to look like natural stone), with one of those rain-like showerheads in the ceiling, and also a regular faucet for when you don't want to be rained on. Reply I want! My husband and I live in a fantastic apartment right now, but it has no bath tub. Tragic. Reply Oh my gawd! Since moving out of my inlaw's house almost two years ago, I have been bathtubless. It's awful! What I wouldn't give for any one of those beautiful tubs! Reply The baths were one of the major perks of living in Japan for six years. My first apartment had a heater in the tub that would reheat the water. Cue super-long soaks with wine and a good book. I also used to go to the public baths, which would have all sorts of different kinds in one room. The best was in February in Hokkaido, sitting in an outdoor bath watching the snow fall all around me. The hot springs were amazing, but my hair froze. I miss it! Reply Are you kidding me? I would never, ever leave the bathtub. For real. I'd set up a workstation and hang out. Reply I agree with you totally!! Reply Oh, there is nothing better than a good bath. On our honeymoon we stayed in a tree house, in the rainforest, overlooking the caldera of an extinct volcano. And there was a two-person jacuzzi bath set into the picture window, looking out over all of this. With a fireplace facing us. I don't know if I'll ever have another bath quite like that, but I do know that our dream home will have quite a large tub, since my 6'6 husband doesn't fit in the average bath… Reply sounds incredible!! Reply One of the things my fiance and I dream about splurging on whenever we're able to buy our own house is a really nice tub. This whole post is like porn to me right now. Reply Totally drooling over these tubs! We've decided that we'll probably be lifelong renters, which is great for us – but it leaves the bathroom of my dreams hanging out to dry! Any thoughts on remodeling a bathroom in rented apartment (with approval of course)? Reply This makes me want to move super bad. I'm living in a rented town-house with a disgusting excuse for a tub. I can barely shower in it, let alone relax. I've always wanted a deep claw-foot tub, but those all look delicious too! P.S. How did I not know there's an offbeat empire pinterest?! Reply Each site's Pinterest account is linked from the top of the sidebar — look for the red P icon up there by the Facebook and Twitter icons. Reply These are all incredible. They aren't exactly the kind of thing you can just add to your existing house though! I think you have to really hunt down a house that has these options. The second one is my absolute favourite. Makes it seem more like a pool. Reply Oh, my – I think I just had a tubgasm! I love them all! But I think my favorite is the second one, as well as the cement one. Ooohh, man I want to go take a bath rightnow. Reply I want them all. Reply I think the pinterest link is broken. I know ya'll have an offbeathome pinterest account, but I couldn't find a board of bathtubs? Reply I am finally in a position to get my first home and chances are we may very well end up building. I want an indoor outdoor bathroom, they pretty much have double everthing but living in the tropics it would be AMAZING for summer! http://www.buzzfeed.com/sarahs28/outdoor-bathroomsindoor-gardens-1yzj kinda like some of these Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
