Here’s another Caroma tub, this time in a pearly shade of white. In fact, this Caroma Pearl (also available through Reece) boasts an oval organic shape. Note the way its simplicity is the perfect contrast to the ornate wall in the product shot below. Would you choose an acrylic tub for your crisp, clean powder room? This Nazzano Acrylic Modern Bathtub from Modern Bathroom Vanities has the advantage of being nonporous, which means it’s very hygienic and easy to clean.
Benches can be great for increasing storage space, given that you can find options that come with cubbies, shelves, and drawers. Check out this bench from Porch.com that has lots of room for extra towels. Another bench featured again on BHG has a drawer pullout where you can store all your accessories. Everyone knows standing up in the shower is the norm, but if you have a disability, or if you just want to safely be able to wash the soles of your feet, a bench in the shower can really help! Keep that in mind for your next shower remodel. Here’s a beautiful marble bench that extends from the subway tile in this shower, featured on BHG. You can get really creative with built-in shower benches by using different types and colors of material, like this example of a black tiled shower from Carla Aston. Or why not just keep it subtle? Extend the tile to include the bench, like this white and pink bathroom featured on BHG.
We now shine the spotlight on a series of modern powder rooms that are magnificent in their own right. Stone is the material of choice in the bathroom below, which makes the Haven Stone Bathtub with Base from Apaiser an ideal choice for the space! Note how details such as a sculptural pendant light add layers of eye-catching design to this interior. Sometimes less is more, and when the powder room is all about the tub, it’s not a bad idea to go bold. Next we see Apaiser’s Haven Stone Bathtub (this time without the base), and if black isn’t your tub color of choice, note that in true Apaiser tradition, the piece is available in a variety of finishes. Here’s another modern black bathtub in a grey bathroom, and this time the tub is available through Modern Bathroom Vanities.
Curves or angles? This may be the very question you’re asking yourself as you shop for the perfect bathtub. And if you’re a modern design enthusiast, the choice becomes even more difficult, as there are clean-lined advantages to both approaches. Today we shine the spotlight on round bathtubs, both oval and circular. We’ll take a look at the different styles that can be evoked by round tubs, and we’ll even point you in the direction of some fabulous bathtub sources should you be ready to make a purchase!
Apaiser is a great source for luxury round stone tubs, such as the Eclipse Stone Bathtub shown below. In fact, Apaiser tubs are perfect for spaces that showcase building materials such as stone and tile. Soft edges are a highlight of this piece, and it’s also available in a range of hues and materials. Keep in mind that when it comes to the modern powder room, a round tub has the power to soften the bold lines of the space. Yet you don’t have to play it safe with the bathtub, as shown below by a bold selection in black, a Caroma product purchased from Reece.
Your bench doesn’t necessarily have to be built right into your shower. If you have enough room, you can purchase a standalone bench that you can bring right in, and remove whenever you want! Here’s a wooden bench in a large walk-in from HGTV. What type of bathroom bench or stool is your favorite? Let us know in the comments.
