Unique Tubs For Bath Time Pleasures

Light some candles, put Sade on repeat, pour yourself a glass of wine and just soak your stress away. Bath time is a self indulgence, one that is absolutely divine. Whether you fill the tub with milk, bubbles or flower petals, the warm, soothing waters seem to be a bodily cleanse that purifies even your soul. The bathtub, in many cases, is the centerpiece of the bathroom. So having a unique tub design will bring together all the other features of your master bedroom.

An Ark of Serenity

To our amazement, current designers have infused the environmentally-conscious attitude with interior home design. Tubs constructed out of wood and bamboo are great installations to a home where the overall theme is guided by nature.

Install an iconic, bold statement piece in the bathroom for a fresh look.
