BATHROOM DESIGN: THE ULTIMATE BATHTUB

Is it me or are bathtubs sexier than ever? Every time I see a unique one that hits the market, I want to switch out. Even as a youngster until now, I prefer a good soak before my bath, which consists of super-hot water loaded with a combination of gigantic bubbles with Philosophy Caramel Candies and Butterscotch Candy, Ahava Mineral Sea Salt, and my favorite Victoria’s Secret body wash, Red Plum & Freesia. My relaxation tool is my Gold Beats Solo³ Wireless by Dre, and when I turn them on, the first song playing is probably going to be Trey Songz – Chi Chi (feat. Chris Brown). So, I inhale–exhale and block the world entirely out.

With that said, I know for me, after a long day, which can include an agenda that never ends, my bathroom becomes my place of serenity. It is my get-a-way retreat that helps me to regroup. So, combining a stylish look and the possibilities of having a personal in-home spa with the ultimate bathtub is well within reach. Moreover, when dealing with clients, I make sure that they understand their options, along with specific therapeutic necessities that will benefit more on a personal level. Also, when it comes to getting in and out of these beautiful beauties – functionality is vital.

Designer Tip: If you prefer a warm and soothing bath with Micro-bubbles, which detoxifies the overall body, or a powerful deep-penetrating massage of combined air and water, there are unlimited options on the market.

Whether deciding from fiberglass, porcelain on steel, acrylic, cast iron, solid-surface materials, cultured marble, ceramic, stone, or wood – the choice to find the ultimate bathtub should be easy breezy!
