Around this time of year, many people are catching Spring fever. The weather is nice finally and everyone is out and about much more than during the winter. For some reason, once the weather warms up, cleaning, renovating, and decorating begin with a fervor.
You may have caught this bug too and want to renovate parts of your house. If the bathroom is tagged for a makeover, you may be searching for modern bathtub styles. Even changing this one element in your home can make a big difference in the look and feel of your bathroom.
Bathtub Style Choices
In today’s bathroom design market place, you have your pick of modern bathtub styles. You can go all out contemporary or stay within the bounds of traditional styles. It’s all up to you. Below is a brief list of bathtub styles to consider when renovating your bathroom. It’s hardly extensive but it may offer you a general glance at what’s out there.
Circular modern bathtub styles are a contemporary favorite. Sometimes freestanding, sometimes drop-in, circular tubs come in a range of styles within the style. You can also find round Japanese style tubs (discussed further below) as well as more traditional tubs. Round tubs are often quite modern in appearance and may take up a lot of space. If you’re running low on room, this is not always the best option. However, circular tubs offer a crisp, minimal edge to the right size bathroom.
Traditional tubs with a modern twist are common now. Such modern bathtub styles using old favorites as inspiration, include clawfoot tubs, pedestal tubs, and slipper tubs. These modern traditional styles are generally cleaner around the edges with less flourish and are usually manufactured from more modern materials such as acrylic or even glass. If you like to mix old with new or want a touch of traditional in a very contemporary bathroom, these are the tub styles for you.
Japanese bathtubs are a popular soaking tub. They are tall and deep and work in a variety of size bathrooms. Some are round and some are rectangular, but whether a part of modern bathtub styles or not, Japanese bathtubs are designed for real bathing. As with most bathtubs today, you will have your pick of materials. For a clean, modern appearance, acrylic is probably your best choice.
If you only have space for a more standard type of bathtub, you can still find modern bathtub styles. Many standard drop-in tubs are quite sophisticated and sleek. If you need to go really simple and standard, companies like Kohler have clean-lined tubs that will complement most bathrooms. Look for tubs that are pure white with straight lines for a modern appearance.
Whatever the size or shape of your bathroom or the extent of your bathroom renovation, modern bathtub styles and selection will not disappoint. A new bathtub can greatly enhance the look of your bathroom overall.
