Undermount Bathtubs

Ok, so there's no possibility of a tub in our master bathroom, and as much as I would love one there, I've had to come up with an alternative option for the house.  

 So many of you had strong opinions about a tub in the house, or the lack of one.
I listened to them all and realized that I need to find a place for a tub--both for resale value and to give me a place for a long soak.

The two downstairs guest baths were designed for showers.
One of them would have to change to a shower-over-tub, something I'm not fond of.

I came up with the idea of an undermount tub with a marble surround.
It gives the tub added importance and elegance.
Plus, I love the look--think candles lined up on the ledge!

 This is very close to how the guest bedroom bath will look.  Same basketweave floor, same subway on the wall, minus the black detail.  The marble deck surrounding the tub is a little wide, but you get the idea.

I like the wall mounted faucets for showering, with a side tub filler as an option for bathing.
I'm still trying to decide if a glass door is an option.

I'm really excited about this change.  It's a win win because now I can sneak away for a bath, but also the grandkids can now have a tub too when they visit.  

Pin It!

These are all so pretty! I'm the same way..dying for a big tub (doesn't every woman?!) Living in San Francisco you think I'd have a clawfoot tub..but didn't work out that way :(

my pet peeve on show/tub combos is that sometimes the faucet location is not readily accessible from outside the tub. I noticed several of the pictures show faucets that have the faucets on the far side of the tub. How do you easily reach them to fill the tub?

Pretty and practical do not always match!

I think you have a solution. I like the look. Can you get a deep, soaking tub in this style?
