While the clawfoot bathtub has made a huge comeback in the world of bathroom design, there are many companies out there trying to break the conventions of this common furnishing. According to Freshome.com, a company called yourStoneBath has created a line of natural stone bathtubs and vessel sinks that will add a touch of nature to the space.
Each of the stone tubs are handmade and cut from a single piece of large stone. While the outside of the piece is kept rough to show the unique nature of each stone, the inside is polished smooth to offer superior comfort and show the many different hues inside the stone.
While these natural stone bathtubs aren't cheap, they may be even more difficult to get into your home. Many of the tubs weigh over a ton and need a forklift to be placed into a house. So if you're thinking about investing in one, make sure it's in a bathroom at ground level!
Natural materials like hand-carved stone are becoming extremely popular in bathroom design as homeowners look for a way for their spaces to stand out. Would you ever consider purchasing a natural stone bathtub?
