tub choice

boisedoctormomJuly 22, 2011

I am remodeling all 3 bathrooms in my "storybook style" home in Boise. My teenagers bathroom currently has one shower (which she never uses) and she desperately wants a bathtub. After many conversations with the contractor, it seems I must find a very small tub to fit this space. I initially ordered an American Standard Huron (46 1/2" by 28") but found it to be cheap looking and uncomfortable to sit it. So now I am looking at the Kohler Greek tub. Has anyone used it and loved it? Can you use it for a shower? Do you have to buy the "apron" that makes it an alcove tub (which is what I need). Is the apron ugly and would it be better to just tile the front? Any input would be appreciated, time is of the essence, of course.

you may want to post this on the discussions side; this area is for photos of finished baths, so you won't get much feedback here.

Wondering the same thing...only we are looking into the Bellwether bathtub by Kohler. It's a deep, cast-iron tub. It looks like it has clean lines and is deeper than most affordable, non-spa, cast irons.
