Everyone loves a freestanding bathtub; they are the epitome of class and elegance. Thankfully, nowadays, they are accessible to most people, and are available in a huge range of materials, textures, colours and styles. Just like the bedroom is your space for sleep, the bathroom should be the one room you are guaranteed to relax—no questions asked. Whether oval, round or even square, a freestanding tub will always have that wow-factor that a recessed tub lacks. A hero, and feature, these tubs are designed to speak in volumes on their own accord, needing no other decoration or detail to make them stand out. So, without further ado, we recommend that you draw a bath, fill it with bubbles, and take a look at some of these stunning examples of freestanding bath tub ideas.
A copper bathtub is the epitome of luxury and style. With a warm and welcoming aura, the colour of the material looks anything but cold. Reminiscent of the glory eras of royalty and aristocracy, especially so of 19th century France, this timeless material has been given a new face, and fashioned in an updated and modern style. William Holland has a stunning range of copper bathtubs available; from classic to contemporary, you are sure to find a style that will suit your temple of relaxation and respite.
Wow—what a bathtub! Fashioned from aluminium with a stunning geometric relief, this tub is sure to make you the envy of your friends and family. Masterfully created by Devon&Devon, the Capitol bathtub has a unique, cast iron interior. This piece is available in a huge range of colours, 213 to be precise! Curvaceous and classic, your relaxation time will increase, as the first thing on your mind when you return home from work will be a steamy bubble bath. We also love how the circular pattern from the exterior is repeated in the tiles. This flooring is also available from their Prestige collection.
Lighting is crucial when it comes to creating a mood, in fact, our lives are centred around this notion. With the rise of the sun we wake, and conversely, we sleep once it has set. Emulating a sunset at its finest hour, almost as though the colour has been bottled, we see this fine example of a freestanding tub combined with stunning mood lighting from Clifford Interiors. Choosing to light from underneath, instead of above, is also a great way to cast flattering shadows—sometimes, we don't need to be reminded of all the lumps and bumps that have surfaced in recent years. Instead, we'd rather just focus on the task at hand, and let ourselves drift away into a mindset of calm and serenity.
Fresh and bright are two perfect adjectives to describe how we
should feel in the morning. Why not change up your routine, and take a bath instead of a shower? Sure, this means getting up half an hour or so earlier, but just imagine how much more relaxed, and ready to take on the day you will be. This example by Future Light Design, displays the endless possibilities for the positioning of a freestanding bathtub. It is definitely not essential that a tub is placed in a corner or against a wall, in fact, you can really let your imagination run wild with choice. Placed next to a window, the occupant can do away with a TV or iPad for external entertainment, and focus on the stunning view instead.
