Freestanding bathtubs seem to be very appealing and, at one point, you realize you’ve always wanted one without being sure why. There are lots of reasons why you should choose a freestanding bathtub and most of them are related to functionality and style. Most of the times, homeowners choose freestanding bathtubs because of the views. To understand better, imagine a large master bathroom with a large window and a strategically-positioned bathtub. It’s s style that allows you to choose and change the location of the bathtub and to take advantage of the layout and design of the bathroom.
Who doesn’t need more space in their bathroom? Shower curtains are a great option for bathrooms that don’t want to install glass enclosure doors or don’t have enough room for the swing of the door. Many shower curtains install on low profile tracks on the ceiling to enable the curtain to stay open while making your bathroom feel larger. Also consider adding a valance or hang a decorative fabric for a formal approach to your bathtub/shower area. These curtains can also have a liner placed behind the fabric curtain to ensure water doesn’t damage the valance and decorative curtain.
Most powder rooms will be short on space and have enough room for a toilet and wash hand basin only. Toilets don’t vary very much but by introducing a non-standard basin into your room’s design you can set the tone for the rest of the decor. If you find the right hand basin, that suits your tastes, it will be a good starting point for the rest of the design. White porcelain hand basins are perfectly fine, but they are ubiquitous. Consider another material instead. Wood, plastics and brushed metal are all very good alternatives. And if you decide that you want to stick to the classic porcelain basin, why not go for a more unusual shape to make it a bit more of a feature?
Having a bathtub in your small bathroom means taking up more space but if your tub is such that comes with empty surrounding areas by both sides, then it can ultimately serve as storage for most of your toiletries. Even washed and dried towels can be folded and kept in the spaces beside the bathtub. There are also customized designs that come with recessed handles by the sides of the tub which if pulled down, exhibits out-of-sight chrome baskets where you can keep a good number of your toiletries, bath supplies and other items needed in the bathroom. Have it at the back of your mind as you remodel your bathroom that the more storage ideas you are able to create from the fixtures in your bathroom, including sinks and bathtubs, the more convenient your bathroom will be. Apart from being functional to the core, these designs are also aesthetically pleasing and will help you enjoy you bathroom that much more!
