Where to Put Your Freestanding-Bathtub Necessities
Every Freestanding Tub Needs a Spot for Your Novel, Phone or Rubber Ducky
Awhile ago a Houzz user asked me what people do with their bathtub necessities when they have a freestanding bathtub. I've been keeping my eyes open for some stylish solutions to this issue ever since. Everyone has different things they like to have nearby when they are letting Calgon take them away; whether it's reading a novel, catching up on the tabloids, chatting on the phone, enjoying a hard-earned cocktail or anything else, we're not here to judge. We're just here to let you know where you can set your supplies down within your soapy reach!
This traditional chair is working hard, holding a framed picture, a stack of books and a goldfish bowl!
This small silver footstool provides a nice surface for whatever you need next to the bathtub.
This eccentric stool adds print and texture to this spare bathroom, as well as the perfect perch for a glass of Cabernet.
A ceramic Chinese garden stool adds a dry space to keep your towel, preventing you from dripping all over the floor when you get out.
This versatile modern stool can move all around the room wherever you need it, and doesn't look like clutter in this minimalist bathroom.
Nesting tables can be stored compactly when you need more room, or pulled out when you're ready for a soak.
Carry a dressing table chair over to the tub when you need the extra surface...
...then tuck it under the counter when you don't.
This is just a gratuitous "Can you believe that view or that black mosaic tub?" shot.
A simple plant stand is there when you need it within reach and provides a spot for a fragrant herb when you're not soaking.
Here a small end table is used. Judging from what's on it, this looks like it's going to be a bath for two.
If you're planning your bathroom from scratch, consider adding a shelf within reach.
