Egg Bathtub Space Saving ‘Tulip’ Shower

By KBC Kitchen & Bathroom

Space-Saving-Tulip-Shower

Some apartment bathrooms are just not big enough to fit a full- or even half-size tub, unless one considers the extra space already required for standing and walking. This clever flip-down solution makes room for lying down in the bath, but retracts when not in use.

The (Tulip) name was derived by Piotr Pyrtek from the way in which the unit seems to blossom open, as well as the tulip’s versatility in the world of plants. When upright, the enclosure prevents splashing and contains steam for showering. When flipped open, the vertical portion provides a place to lean against along the back surface. Read more »

Outdoor Bathtub & Shower Design

By KBC Kitchen & Bathroom

bath-tub-exterior-design

Why KOS called this the Geo 180 rather than 360 is tough to say – seeing as it provides an incredible in-the-round outdoor bathing experience. What sets this apart from the standard soaking or hot tub? The shower above adds an exotic touch to be sure.

In some ways, this design harkens back to classic models of communal bathing in hot springs or other natural water sources. Overall its simplicity speaks volumes – the experience alone of sitting back against the gently curved surface with water sprinkling down from above is enough to sell most of us on this amazing outdoor bath design.

Cast Iron Bath Tubs

By KBC Kitchen & Bathroom

cast-iron-bath-tubs

Cast iron, cast iron, how do I seriously dislike you? Let me count the ways. Oh yeah, you weight at least 120 pounds!

The only good news is cast iron is brittle, so breaking one with a very big sledge hammer swung by a very big guy is possible. Just make sure to cover the tub completely with moving blankets to trap any shards of cast iron. Strike your first blow in the middle of the wall of the tub, and make it count! Four pieces should do, and as soon as the drain is exposed, disconnect it or you’ll wind up breaking it, which may happen anyway.

But………….. if you want a cast iron tub put back, I strongly suggest you consider stainless steel. Stainless steel tubs have all the benefits of cast iron, with very little of the weight. It takes at least four guys to set a cast iron tub. A stainless steel tub can easily be set by two guys, and some really skilled gusy can do it alone. contractors a favor and nix the cast iron tub.

Translucent glass gives you a window into a miniature underwater world to accompany your showering experience, letting in light and allowing views from inside while protecting privacy on the outside.  Embedded directly in the shower stall walls, it could be used for little land animals or other environments, landscapes or objects of design, but somehow fish do seem the most fitting.

Walk-In Bathtub

By KBC Kitchen & Bathroom

sleek-inflatable-walk-in-tub

solution that seems clunky in an otherwise-nice bathroom space. Sleeker Inflatable Solution Reinvents Basic Walk-In Bathtub, This solution by Su Pin Chia works around these issues in a few interesting ways.

First, its strong horizontals and divided sections break up the monotony of the megalithic form.

Second, when not in use, it is simply much smaller since the sides can remain down rather than up.

Finally, the use of two materials – one hard, one soft – make it seem more like two elements than one.

So how does it work? Instead of folding up, it fills up – the sides are inflatable via the water-propelled jacuzzi mechanism already built in. Whether it would work in reality is a good question, but the concept is quite cool regardless. Walk-In Bathtub,  Sleeker Inflatable Solution Reinvents Basic Walk-In tub, Bathtubs.

Walk in tubs are great when for whatever reason, getting into and out of a standard tub is difficult.

However… the is one obvious characteristic that for whatever reason isn’t so obvious at first.

Because the door opens almost to the bottom of the tub, you must get in the tub before you can fill it, and when you are done soaking, you must empty the tub before you get out.  Bathtubs Walk-In tub Walk-In Bathtub bathroom space bathroom Solution tubs.

Not that this is a high price to pay if you need the advantages of a walk in tub, just be aware upfront.
