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.
