Beautiful Baths

Forget the feature tile (but not really) – a beautiful bathtub is the way to go for achieving a standout bathroom that exudes style and luxury. From a bright green freestanding bath to a spa-like sunken bath, you’d be foolish not to maximise your bathroom with one of these gorgeous designs.

There have been two prominent trends that have emerged in interior design this year: metallics as well as a more natural aesthetic. Consider these trends when selecting your feature bathtub. A beautiful copper bathtub will shine in a monochromatic space, and a serene timber bathtub against a simple white surrounding adds an earthy element to balance out the space.

If you have an unadorned bathroom but are looking for a pop of colour, then look no further than a coloured freestanding tub; it allows for you to keep the rest of the space simple (remember that white tiles remain timeless) whilst still adding character and visual interest.

For an indulgent experience, a sunken bath will transport you to your favourite day spa. This design in a cool concrete or playful penny round tile will create a contemporary tranquil space for you to relax in.

No matter the type of bathtub you choose, it’s worth looking into decorative items to help lift the space (and also for a practical element). I love having a surface to rest my book or glass of wine, and my go-to(s) would be the Coco Republic Hyde Side Table (which has storage – a huge tick of approval in my book) and the Coco Republic Soraya Round End Table.

Take a look through the stunning gallery below to pinpoint what style of bathtub you would choose for your bathroom.
