Drop In Bathtubs

We're adding a drop in tub to the master bathroom at the beach house.  Here are a few images of tubs that we found inspirational.

This is how our tub alcove looked the first time we saw the place.  Not very inspirational.  The tub was pink and cracked, and the tile was pink, and the "step up" configuration was lethal  (this was built in the days before building codes stopped allowing "step up" tubs).

We were very happy the day that tub was demolished....

.... and ended up in a pile of rubble in the driveway.

Here is what our new tub looked like a couple of weeks ago.

It's nice and deep....

I can't wait for that first luxurious soak....

It won't be long, now!

  1. I have a lovely, deep drop in tub and it's my retreat. I love having the wide ledge for candles, soap, books etc. It's tucked into a bay window - the best place in the house. You're going to love yours!

  2. You deserve a nice long bath with all the work you've done on the beach house! It looks great!

  3. exciting!!! I LOVE drop in tubs and totally fantasize about having one! Our master bath remodel is a long way out though. :( I'll just have to live vicariously through you!!!
