Trends in bathrooms across every category have streamlined in style. From traditional rustic to shabby chic, styling has become more minimal with cleaner lines. Shelves opening up and an overall look of simplicity have been adapted to all styles. The most consistent trend we’ve seen and captured for our clientele is the free standing tub.
Soaker tubs and claw foot tubs have pushed the standard built in tub out for something more luxurious. It is not only more appealing visually, but it’s also more environmentally friendly. Huge oversized jacuzzi tubs are, frankly, a waste of water. And let’s face it, the kids think it’s a swimming pool and treat it as such. If you are considering a bathroom renovation a free standing tub will be the single most important aesthetic update.
Free standing tubs can be found in many beautiful styles and colors to enhance the focal point of your en suite. Try adding a standing wall mirror just behind the tub for a sexy intimate feeling, plus it adds size and depth to your bathroom. This is an added bonus to a small bathroom giving it a feeling of more space. We love this gold gilded mirror in the all white bathroom complete with molding and chandelier. In another image, a mirror within a mirror is unique and adds what appears to be an abundance of space to the narrow room.
Staying true to the industrial modern craze, the Jigsaw Designers recently installed an elegant free standing tub in a small guest bath for a client. Adding flare to the room the JDG designer used exposed brick walls to play up the industrial look and kept the sink petite and modern with minimal sconces and facets to not overwhelm the small bath. This resulted in a showcase guest bath and the client was elated.
The claw foot tub and freestanding soaker set the stage to add interesting and personal back drops. Iron windows and iron french doors in all their simple beauty create the perfect back drop for a relaxing bath to unwind in.
Preceding the backdrop and considering the tub, well, there are too many to choose from. The silver chrome-plated soaker is a stunner in the images below. Gold clawfoot tubs, black painted tubs, there are so many interpretations of this classic design that you can express yourself and let your bathroom focal point reflect your personality just like the rest of your home.
Indulge your en suite with art work, wall paper, bay window, whatever you find sexy to surround yourself with to make the most of your bath.
