Design: Bathtubs

What are your thoughts about freestanding bathtubs? Do you have a favourite brand or design? What criteria do you have for the perfect bathtub?

I can count on one hand the number of baths I’ve taken since I moved into my house nearly eight years ago. Maybe if I had a more ideal design (rather than a massive corner jacuzzi tub where the water gets cold by the time it’s filled), maybe I’d take more baths. This is one of my hopes as I plan my bathroom reno.

These are the styles that I gravitate toward, but I haven’t seen any of them in person (and prices are way out of budget for some of them, so I need to find other options). Since my bathroom is so square, and the shower will be rectangular, I’m thinking a curvy bathtub would be best.

    I like a freestanding tub in a massive size bathroom where the tub would be a focal point, especially placed in front of a huge window. I prefer showers over baths. I like the clean water feel over my body. Relaxing in a warm bubble bath with a nice glass of wine is also very enticing. Nice to have options.
