Things We Love: Beautiful Bathrooms

Beautiful bathrooms are one of the great pleasures in life, if you ask us.

And, for us, a great tub is a nonnegotiable.

When we redid our master bath in our Beaufort, NC house a huge, cast-iron soaking tub was the first thing we chose.

The carpenters joked that if there was a natural disaster we should stand on the first floor under the tub because the floor had been reinforced so heavily.

Although it’s not so much of a joke now because, in the wake of Hurricane Florence, we learned what can happen when you build a beautiful wooden enclosure around a cast-iron tub surrounded by windows. And the windows leak. Let’s just say ew.

Lesson learned!

We weren’t planning on a major house renovation just five years after the first one, but you can’t predict the weather, as they say.

And master bathroom, take two, is going to have a more breathable bathing solution, so we don’t find ourselves in this mess again.

Luckily, freestanding tubs are another favorite of ours.

And, after all, the floor’s already reinforced.

Beautiful, simple, streamlined and able to take advantage of every window of view, now we just have to choose the right one! 

What are your bathroom must-haves?

And, obviously, a huge bathtub for curling up with a favorite book,

All come together to make a space that takes the simple parts of the day and makes them extraordinary.

Even bathrooms that aren’t big on space (obviously this doesn’t qualify as one of those!) can be big on style. And getting creative with the floor plan can make it all fit in.

We love little touches that make a bathroom feel homier.

And anything that makes a bath better is a must!

The Fabulous Freestanding Tub

Good morning, chic readers! We hope you had an amazing weekend! We know it isn’t the official start of summer, but once school is out, it always feels like it to us.

And summer is the perfect time for catching up with friends, taking that much-needed vacation and finding the time for the rest and relaxation you missed out on throughout the year.

One of our favorite ways to relax in our homes is in the comfort of a fabulous freestanding tub.

Just add bubbles and good book for a relaxing night at home. Of course, installation is always something to consider. For our Aussie friends, Fix-It Right is a full service plumber serving all of Australia, including Melbourne and Sydney.

Of course, finding the right tub is only one part of the equation.

The hardware can completely change the look of a freestanding tub–and change its functionality. A faucet with a shower attachment is very useful for cleaning large tubs easily.

Our favorite thing about freestanding tubs is that they can be positioned in front of windows to take full advantage of a gorgeous view.

And they come in so many different styles and colors to complement pretty much any bathroom scheme.

We love a tub in the center of the room, especially a round or oddly shaped one that couldn’t have a bathtub otherwise.

For a beautiful way to add character to a bathroom, we love a clawfoot tub like this one. It adds instant history! Are you a fan of freestanding tubs?
