Trend Alert: Egg Tubs
Soaking in a bathtub is the best way to decompress from a long day as it relaxes your mind. body, and soul…. So why not do it in style?
One of the most breathtaking fixtures that can be incorporated in a bathroom design is a freestanding tub. They are effortlessly the focal point of any bathroom…. Especially if they are in the shape of an egg.
Egg tubs are the perfect option for someone who is looking to add a contemporary flair to their bathroom without being too modern. The soft, not so angular lines of an egg tub make it a great addition to any bathroom, even in a more traditional style bathroom.
This style of tub is a great option for any size space as they can come in more narrow sizes or wider sizes. They also come in different colors and finishes. If you are looking for a more sleek, contemporary look you could go for a matte black acrylic or stone, and if you are looking for a more traditional look you can go for the classic white porcelain.
If egg tubs don’t seem to be your style there are many other uniquely shaped free standing tubs that can still make a statement in your bathroom. Some other styles include: pedestal, claw-foot, round top, and slipper.
Pedestal tubs are designed with a solid pedestal style base which raises the tub off the ground. The claw-foot tub is a style that dates back to the 19th century which gives a bathroom antique flare with its “feet” located on the base of the tub. Roll top is a design that has edges appearing to be “rolled over” which presents a comfortable position to rest your arms. Lastly, slipper tubs are for those who enjoy lounging in the bathtub as either side is risen to provide additional space for reclining.
Egg tubs are one of many styles of freestanding tubs, but their shape makes them unique. For more on freestanding tubs, check out this post from 2015. If you want to look at some of our designers’ favorite tubs, we also have this trend alert from 2017.
