In an age where taking a shower has, for the most part, replaced the leisurely bath, it is a pleasure to reconsider the bathtub. We take seriously the orientation and layout of every bathroom, especially those with a tub as a focal point. If it is possible, we prefer to locate a bathtub next to a window and if we are lucky, one with a view.
Since allocating the time to take a bath can be a luxury, we want to make that experience as rewarding as possible. The bathroom should be warm and comfortable, perhaps with radiant floor heat. The light should be adjustable depending on the mood, and the time of day. We often include a music system, sometimes a television or even a fireplace in a master bathroom.
Automatic blinds or curtains can add additional control for natural light coming into the room. We have designed soaking tubs as well as bubbling spas. For some of our clients, one of the only places they can take a break from their hectic lives is in the bathtub, so it is worth the effort to make it special.
