The Inkstone bathtub by Steve Leung is another example of a product which impresses through simplicity and quality. Its design is refined and elegant and it's easy to imagine all sorts of sophisticated bathtub surrounds and chic bathroom decors that go with it. We suggest a casual-chic approach. The Burlesque tub designed by Giorgio Silla has an ovaloide shape which in itself is enough to make it stand out from other similar products. In addition to that this tub is carved out of a single solid block of stone. Its exterior is quite sculptural but in a simple and elegant manner. Kalla bathtub, its design is a harmonious balance between the intrinsic beauty of marble as a material and the rather special shape which suggests a rectangle but with curved corners for a more delicate and pleasant look.
For an ultra-modern and very practical effect, you could even use concrete. Underfloor heating adds a really cosy touch – as well as helping to dry the bathroom, and prevent damp and mould from forming – if you have hard floors. If you're considering underfloor heating, visit our guide to get an idea of the costs involved. As well as possibly using tiles for your floor, you'll need to use tiles on the walls around the shower or bath, which should be added after they're fitted. You can also get the same tiles for your bathroom walls and floor if you want a streamlined look. Options for wall-tile types include glass, ceramic or natural stone. There are matt or gloss tiles, and you can have small mosaic ones right through to large tiles, which can make a space-limited bathroom feel larger. Tiles can also be used to make a statement – bold colours or different finishes can have a big impact. If they're used sparingly, such as just around a shower or even statement tiles as a strip running through plain white tiles, it doesn't have to be expensive.
Minimal in design and only slightly asymmetrical, the Desco tubs designed by Vittorio Longheu are not only very stylish but also very precious, keeping alive the finest and most sophisticated Italian handcrafting tradition. Eclipse is an egg-shaped freestanding tub designed by Marco di Paolo for antoniolupi. It's designed to be stylish, versatile, sophisticated as well as ergonomic and practical. A small storage shelf is seamlessly integrated into the continuous form of the tub, becoming a very practical feature which makes total sense and complements the design perfectly. What could be more poetic than a bathtub carved by water? On that note, we present to you the Epoque tub which is made out of a block of Amazzone stone carved with water. Its form and design are simple, fluid and sculptural with an emphasis on simplicity and contemporary elegance but also on the natural qualities of the material used.
