One of my favorite techniques to help make a huge splash in a bathroom makeover is incorporating really lavish bathtub ideas to make even the smallest and most outdated space feel like a luxurious 5 star hotel suite. So far, for all of my bathroom remodel 2020 projects that I have taken on, both the clients and myself have wanted to install a freestanding or clawfoot tub. This is my favorite master bath in my portfolio to date that features one of these tubs. I love how both the tub itself as well as the other bathroom decor ideas we used, teeter on that line of modern and traditional but, above all, really embody a timeless elegance and pure luxury that most homeowners want to feel when they walk into their master suite.
I have been having so much fun looking at bathtub ideas trying to plan out our master bathroom remodel. I mean who knew just how incredibly intricate, diverse, and down right beautiful bathtub design could be. There are tons and tons of different styles, shapes, colors and materials to choose from so it can be a real bear to figure out exactly what you want. I have always been more of a traditional person when it comes to styling (well and life in general), so the bathroom ideas in this house are really speaking to me. I adore the rich wood paneling, the oval Jacuzzi, and simple yet classic tile. They whole thing is very neutral so I could easily incorporate my personal style and color preferences (as could any future owner) so it seems like the best option for us.
As you can see from these photos, we are in drastic need of some bathtub ideas to update this god awful 1990s master bathroom that we inherited after moving into this house. I have been looking all over the place at bathroom remodel pictures in order to get a better idea of what is popular these days (I am so not an interior designer or up on any of that). The basic footprint of the space is pretty good I think, it is the tiling that I feel is the main issue. Unfortunately, tile also seems to be the largest cost when in comes to renovating a space like this. I was think that if we are going to basically have to gut the entire place anyways, I would tear out the existing jacuzzi and replace it with one of the really luxurious looking small bathtub ideas that have the claw feet or at the very least a free standing design.
I am usually not a huge fan of over the top bathtub ideas, but this one actually caught my eye because of its usual shape and placement in the room. Most bathroom designs put the major elements like tubs, vanities, and showers around the perimeter of the room, leaving an open space in the center. I actually like this unique take bathroom designs and how they used the tub to center the room and then hit the shower and vanity behind it. This layout actually makes a lot of sense because most people don't actually utilize that huge open space that is left in the center of your average bathroom. This makes the space seem much more full and complete without looking overcrowded.
I am loving these freestanding bathtub ideas because they look like they open up even the most cramped looking old bathroom. Everybody from my mother to our real estate agent have told me that bathroom renovations are an important part of maintain the value of your home, but I get so discouraged by them because they are so expensive and really don't make a ton of difference to how the space looks or functions (at least the ones we have done in the past). However, I think that including some really high end and trendy bathroom design ideas like this may actually make a bigger impact on the space as opposed to what we have done in the past.
I just do not understand why narrowing down bathtub ideas for our master has to be so dang hard! I am pretty creative when it comes to styling my home so I am definitely open to some unique and unconventional bathtub tile ideas. Unfortunately, with that willingness to experiment often times comes indecisiveness because there are just so many cool things that I would love to do. For a long time, the master bath in these photos was my be all and end all dream design. I wanted to copy each and every piece of their trendy bathroom decor 2020 down to the awesome mosaic border accent used throughout the tiling job. Now that I am getting ready to actually hire the contractor to complete the job, I am getting cold feet.
