15 shower & bathtub designs
Make your daily ritual something to look forward to with these inventive designs
Deck-mounted jetted tub with fireplace
Gas-fired logs ignite at the flip of a switch to keep the space warm during long soaks. Dual headrests in the jetted tub keep it extra cozy.
Acrylic alcove tub
An acrylic alcove bath with front apron is relatively inexpensive and easy to install.
The freestanding tub is nicely framed by blue tile, wainscot, and a dark wood beam. A handheld showerhead allows the tub to be used for both bathing and soaking.
Standard alcove tub
Standard alcove tubs can be given a more custom look with the addition of a sliding glass shower door.
Placed under windows in a second-story bathroom, this undermount tub with smooth stone surround and wood-paneled sides offers excellent views of the treetops. The center-mounted faucet allows two bathers to sit comfortably.
Inspired by a hotel in Bali, this spa bathroom features a soaking tub surrounded by windows that bring in the outdoors.
Cast iron tub
The cast-iron tub in this 1950s-era home was refinished during the bathroom remodel and looks as good as new surrounded by a wide band of blue glass tiles.
Undermount whirlpool tub
A cross-handled deck-mount faucet in brushed chrome sits on one end of a narrow undermount whirlpool tub.
Walk-in tubs don’t take up much floor space; this model by Oceania features variable-speed air jets.
Deck-mounted jetted tub
This deck-mounted tub has 47 air-massage jets around the bottom edge of the tub. You can order one with more jets along the floor for a stronger massage.
The open shower, with glass-tiled walls and slatted teak floor, is bathed in light. It features separate fixed and handheld wand-style showerheads that operate independently.
Dark tiles on a shower surround might make the space feel a bit confining, but it’s certainly not the case in this large shower with a glass door and a top that’s open to the vaulted ceiling above.
Frosted glass paneled-shower
Frosted areas obscure the view through the glass shower panels in all the right places.
Prefab shower with custom touches
Built-in ledges for toiletries and a bar for washcloths add a custom touch to this prefabricated shower unit.
The glass panel above the shower door can be closed when the steam shower is in use or opened to let steam escape.
