Bathtubs & Showers Resource Guide

How to Choose the Best Bathtub or Shower

Begin by asking yourself two key questions: How much space do I have to work with? And what look and feel am I after? (Skip to the advice posts.)

Whatever your needs, there are great-looking and high-functioning bathtubs and showers for all scenarios, whether you’ve got a spacious, spa-size space or a tiny urban bath. When you’re ready to make your tub and shower decisions, take a look at our favorite options on the market, ranging from sources close to home, such as Waterworks and Kohler, to finds from around the world.

Our picks range from modern freestanding bathtubs to classic clawfoot tubs, plus a collection of exotic bathtub and shower enclosures made from lime plaster, cast concrete, or Tadelakt, a Moroccan pigmented plaster. Browse all our bath posts for new ideas (could a black bathtub be in your future? You may be inspired when you see our roundup of 10 beautiful styles that add a moody and mysterious note). After all, nobody says a bathroom has to be strictly utilitarian.
