Many designers are building shower cubicles in new modern bathrooms that are just as big as a bathtub, because many new homeowners are satisfied with just having a shower in their bathroom instead of a bathtub. Bathtubs take up a lot of space, and use up A LOT of water, especially if you’re taking a bath every day, and if you have an entire family using that much water it can really add up.

But why take the relaxing aspect of the bathtub experience and incorporate it into your shower ritual? I visited a hotel recently that had a wonderful seat built right into the shower tiles. It looked amazing and I found it very handy for when I wanted to give my feet a good scrub.

There are plenty of ideas out there for you if you’re considering building a seat into your shower, and I’ve collected a whole bunch of them here to get you feeling inspired! Take a look!

When I say wooden bathtub, is the first image that comes to your mind that of an ol’ prospector in covered-wagon times scrubbing at himself in a tiny wooden tub? Well, if it is, get ready to have your perception of wooden bathtubs completely challenged and then dismantled.

Wooden bathtubs are becoming more prevalent in rustic modern bathroom design. They are absolutely gorgeous, and give the bathroom (and the bather) a feeling of enveloping warmth and comfort. Also, wood holds heat longer than other materials like porcelain, so you’ll stay toastier longer in your bath.

Cedar and bamboo are two very popular choices for wood in this kind of bathtub, but other wood can be used to suit your design needs, the wood just needs to be waterproofed and treated in order to maintain it’s quality over years of use. These kinds of tubs aren’t exactly cheap, but as they get more popular and different kinds of wood are used, I am definitely seeing wooden tubs on the market for relatively reasonable prices.

Check out this gallery of gorgeous wooden tubs that you’ll want to be the centerpiece of your bathroom!

If you’re lucky enough to live in a warm climate, where the potential to take a shower outside year-round exists, then I don’t know why you aren’t out there right now, basking in the sun and in the warm water of your amazing shower. I have experienced these kinds showers only at a few beautiful tropical resorts, and it was one of the most luxurious feelings in the world. Because I live in a climate that would laugh in the face of an outside shower, I’ve resigned myself to the fact that my own personal outdoor bathtub or shower experience will have to exist only in my dream home.

I’ve collected a whole bunch of images of some incredible outdoor bath and shower designs that will transport you away from your desk and make you wish you were soaking in a claw-foot tub with the sounds of nature all around you. Enjoy!
