Metal Tub

Metal Tub

When I was growing up, we took baths.  It wasn’t fancy, we didn’t bathe to relax, bathing was just to get the dirt off (I spent many formative years on a farm).  For the country in general, the daily bath fell out of favor and was replaced by the now-ubiquitous shower. Who can argue with the efficiency and speed of a quick shower when we need to get children and ourselves out the door?  Showers can also save water and energy depending on how much time we spend with the water running (my children are an exception).

Whereas a few years ago, a tub was just a fixture we included for bathing small children or to soak a tired back, today a tub is often the centerpiece of the bathroom.  These tubs come in a galaxy of shapes and materials and include features too numerous to detail.  My favorites are often the most simple, which are made to just sit and soak.
