With a history that stretches back to the ancient Greeks and Romans, it’s no wonder that baths have become staples in most homes. But why rely on a too-small, boring, shower-and-bath combination set-up? A good tub allows you to stretch out, soak in the suds, and engage in some much-needed self-care, and the best tubs let you do it all in style. So why settle?

Below, we’ve compiled a list of 15 of the coolest bathtubs out there. From stand-alone tubs to sunken tubs, porcelain to, well, other materials, and ergonomic to hydromassage capable, the options are endless. Who knows, maybe you’ll end up inspired and thinking about your own bathroom remodel; trust us, temptation runs high with these tubs!

Another example of a sunken tub, this option in more traditional acrylic offers ample space to relax, decorative storage, plenty of light (which is a plus if you like to read in the tub!). Keeping the shower in an enclosed area separate from the bath ensures that your alone time is just that - alone time.

5. Wooden Retreat

Even wood can be turned into a beautiful custom bathtub

If you’re interested in something a little more exciting than acrylic, why not look for a tub made from a unique material, like wood? Wooden tubs can complete your interior design, serve as a focal point in the master bath, and offer a one-of-a-kind bathing experience.
