Tub advice, and photos? Bancroft? Cambrige? Edenton?
We are having a terrible time finding a traditional looking tub (early 20th c) for our bath remodel. It appears that we have to do an alcove-type tub, with a knee wall on one side. (Our current tub is open on two sides, with the plumbing on the outside end (It can't be in the wall, unless we used the long wall, which we don't like.) Nobody makes those anymore.) Almost all the tubs we see are either very 1940s/50s/60s looking or very contemporary-looking.
Ideally, we would like it to be 60x30, though we can squeeze 60x32. We want something 16-20 inches deep, which rules out a whole lot. We can't do a freestanding tub because it has to double as a shower.
First, if anyone has any advice, it would be very much welcomed. Photos would also be welcomed!
Among the tubs we are currently considering (without enthusiasm) are the American Standard Cambridge and Kohler Bancroft. (These are both 60x32, not our preferred 60 x30.) Unfortunately we can't find any samples of them anywhere in our area. So if anyone had any good photos of either of those, installed, they would be very much welcome. The manufacturer's photos are terrible!
We are also considering the Mirabelle Edenton, which is just 60x30, but have mixed feelings because it is so modern looking, and has almost no lip around it for shampoo etc. Also we have seen the quality concerns posted here. But if anyone has used one of those in a traditional-looking-bathroom context, photos would be greatly appreciated!
