Cool Bathtubs

Updated on November 29, 2008

Some Really Cool (Hot?) Tubs

I'm in the process of renovating my house; just about every room. (I have vision, you see, at least that's what I tell my husband!) So, I've immersed myself in all things home related. I've always been a fan of HGTV, and I'm on a first name basis at Lowes and Home Depot. Of course, I look at all the books and magazines pertaining to remodeling, decorating etc.

There are some truly amazing tubs out there; some reasonable, some not so much. So I thought I'd share some of the cooler, more unusual things. Who knows? Maybe you'll be inspired!

The Salad Bowl Tub

This is just awesome! The Madera bathtub is sculpted by hand from choice solid woods for a true combination of design and beauty. Who knew wood and water could mix?

Stainless Steel? I feel like a Football Player!

Looking for a bathtub that is sustainable, easy to maintain and drop dead gorgeous? Stainless steel might be just what you are looking for. Stainless steel tubs come in a variety of shapes and styles that can be paired with other materials like enamel and wood. They are a good conductor of heat, and will keep the water warmer for an extended period of time. They are also corrosion resistant and should not rust. Stainless steel tubs are not mass produced, so they can be expensive and many people opt for having them custom made to suit their needs. Stainless tubs are generally in the $7,000 to $17,000+ (US) range, which is not exactly pocket change, but if you are looking for something sustainable, durable and different it might just be worth the investment.

The Smoooooooth Tub...

When it comes to great looking free standing tubs, Boffi of Italy excels in the field. This tub looks as though it was hewn from a piece of solid ivory and makes a powerful statement with the simplest of lines. Boffi's collection also includes a fresh line of free standing sink stands to compliment any of the modern bath tubs they offer.

A Japanese Ofuro Tub

Zen is in, and the ultimate in visual appeal and bathroom relaxation are Japanese ofuro tubs used for centuries to alleviate both physical and spiritual tensions. Traditionally "ofuro" baths were used as a very small soaking tub, being filled with hot water, then emptied at the end of the evening, barely fitting one person. This ancient technique of immersion in hot water takes away tensions and stress, soothes muscular pains, and stimulates blood's circulation. The paartucular tubs, made by Roberts, are made to order, so there are no standard sizes. I would turn into a prune!

The Ultimate Jacuzzi

Settle in for a soak with Jacuzzi's La Scala tub (from $32,150), a home "bathing and entertainment center" for two. Inspired by the famed Milan opera house, this tub treats you to the ultimate home theater experience - with surround sound! - while you and your tubmate enjoy a whirlpool bath. Watch movies on the 42-inch high-definition plasma monitor (the system includes a floating remote) while ten adjustable jets deliver a head-to-toe hydrotherapy massage. The La Scala comes in white, black, or high-luster platinum, and since it's part of a limited production run, each tub is certified and numbered.

Are you Big on Tubs? Are you a Shower Person? Let me know!
