INSIDE/OUTSIDE: rub a dub dub
Posted by Sal Taylor Kydd on 9/12/2007

SAL: As we’re looking at bathroom layouts for the Kydd House there’s a little bit of pressure mounting as to what style of tub we want. Is it freestanding, or built-in? These decisions will impact the final bathroom design. A freestanding tub is a majestic thing, it needs room, it needs placement. I’m a big fan of a good tub, even though I might not use it for 360 out of 365 days a year - boy for those five days I’ll be REALLY glad I had it! Tub-searches are not so easy to do online, like a bed, there’s something about a tub that you really need to experience first hand before making a decision. That being said, I had a bit of a mooch about and found some gorgeous options. The Water Monopoly company in London has a great site to look at for ideas, the Paris tub pictured above is a nice combination of classic and contemporary. Vintage tub is a great stop if it’s a clawfoot tub you’re after, and Waterworks classic tub was a not-too-crazily-priced, but elegant built-in tub. I’m not one for the jets, or inline heating, so I’m hoping my needs will be relatively easy to address. If I can’t find what I’m after, I may just throw in the towel (pardon the pun) and go for a hot tub in the yard and be done with it. Only the classiest ones though, of course.
