This tub-shower combo is anything but basic. Enclosed by a pair of glass doors on an industrial-style track, this tub is perfect for a quick morning shower or an evening soak.

This nook was once home to a bulky and outdated aqua-green whirlpool tub. In a bathroom remodel, it was replaced with a freestanding tub that works just as well for soaking and relaxing but reflects an updated cottage style.

This bathtub is a fusion of unrivaled style and understated simplicity. Inconspicuous linen-white walls serve as the backdrop for a sliver of gray stone that wraps around the tub surround.
