More Romance in the Bathroom: Copper and Nickel Soaking Tubs

House Beautiful
How romantic to have a copper bathtub instead of the typical porcelain tub. It is unexpected and stands alone as the focal point in a bathroom. Penelope Bianchi's bathroom in her home in Santa Barbara with this antique copper soaking tub is amazing!

Surprisingly, adding a rustic element to the bathroom such as a copper tub, actually gives a sense of elegance.

The Bath Works
They may be polished, but most people let them age gracefully into a natural patina.

They fit in modern, contemporary and traditional settings.

Besides being beautiful, copper tubs also are resistant to bacteria and molds.

This solid copper tub from Kallista is called the Archeo. It sells for $67,557.00!
Most copper tubs can be purchased for $3000 to $5000 though.

Perhaps a sleek nickel tub is more to your liking!

A totally different look, lending a more contemporary aesthetic to the bathroom.


Southern Accents
However, this nickel tub looks perfectly at home in this cottage bathroom.

So which do you prefer, the copper or the nickel tub? I am in love with that copper tub in the garden, even though it reminds me of one of those ridiculous Cialis commercials!

I just love how these tubs lend an organic feel to the bath like this tub in Charles Faudree's bathroom at his country retreat. Obviously it is an antique. Just add bubbles and a glass of wine and I'm in heaven!
