Wooden bathtubs for ultimate spa hedonism
Laguna Spa by Alegna borrows an idea from nature and the results is one of the most fascinating bathtubs we've ever seen. Excess water is pleasantly gurgling away between the pebbles and all you have to do is close your eyes and you'll feel you are in the natural pool right away. The wide rim makes getting in and out an easy matter. Attractive optical accents can be set with the employment of different pebbles or even other materials making this bathtub beyond comparison.
Now, we're pretty sure you didn't think about having a transparent bath bathtub but - why not? The Wave Diamond tub by Bagno Sasso Mobili, made in wood-glass-metal combination, has a very modern look with its glass sides and it's more a sculpture than a bathtub. There's no doubt: this bathtub is so beautiful, it transforms any bathroom from a place you are washing yourself in to a graet-looking home spa.
People at NK Woodworking in Seattle are doing great things with wood. Their hardwood bathtubs are hand crafted and offer beautiful curves and a luxury look. They are made from exotic hardwoods and finished with a composite for durability and longevity. That method is very labor intensive, no doubt about it, but the result is stunning. The bathtub will last for a very long time and it looks fantastic with that glossy shine. If you have a chance, throw away your old bathtub and buy this one.
If you need a bathtub for two we suggest you take a look at the German company Niewendick's the Bamwan bamboo bathtub. Bamboo is hard and water-resistant material and is particularly suitable for bathtubs. Bamwan has a distinctive shape that reminds of a boat with those metal handles. This is a designer tub with a retro flair with both functional and aesthetic look. The design is ergonomically adapted to the body, to assure the highest level of comfort. It is a laminated bamboo construction hold together with an adhesive from boat and aircraft. ■
