As bathrooms become much larger in new homes all around the country, interest in the traditional free-standing bathtub has come roaring back in the world of interior design. According to the Calgary Herald, the tub gives the feeling of a spa in an ordinary bathroom and is a must-have for those who take their baths seriously.
There are countless design options out there to choose from, but one of the styles that has piqued homeowners' interests is the classic clawfoot tub. With the ability to show off elegant faucets, dials and other hardware, it can be a focal point of the space. However, interior designers recommend that homeowners take into account the scale of their bathroom vanity, toilet, shower stall and other furnishings before making a decision.
"I think when it comes to bathtubs, the simpler the better," Alykhan Velji, a Calgary interior designer, told the news source. "Free-standing tubs don't complicate a room, but rather add another layer to the design."
If you have the space, a bathtub could be a fabulous addition to your redesigned bathroom. What bathtub styles do you prefer in your washroom?
