15 Beautiful Bathrooms Featuring Sunken Bathtubs

Most traditional homes usually feature the same type of bathtub. But there are also other types to explore. One of them is the sunken bathtub. This style is more suited for modern and contemporary homes but it can also be adapted to other types of decors. Also, sunken tubs come in many different designs.

A nice option would be a corner sunken tub with windows on both sides

Sunken tubs are great for several reasons. One example would be the fact that they feel more relaxing, even though their shape might not differ from that of a traditional bathtub. But the fact that it sits in the ground makes it feel more intimate and thus more inviting and relaxing. Moreover, a sunken tub makes the bathroom feel more airy and even larger. It’s because the tub doesn’t obstruct the décor and the views.

If you prefer a continuous design, you can have the sunken tub hidden under the floor when not used

To save space, create a tub/shower combo that works great with sunken models

Usually, sunken tubs are placed either against the wall or near the window. By having the tub sit close to a floor-to-ceiling window you get to admire and enjoy the views from an angle that you don’t explore that much. Sunken bathtubs also work well in combination with a shower as they can be the shower cabin. So you get to save space and to have a stylish décor for your bathroom.
