Need Fantastic Ideas for 3 wall Alcove Tub or Something Special
Hi everyone. Thank you all for being super smart, I already know you're going to have some killer ideas.
I'm re-doing my bathroom. It has a 3 wall alcove area for a tub that's 60" (5 feet) long. I'm 73" tall. The tub's getting replaced one way or the other, so I want one that I'll fit in. I've been looking at standard 3 wall alcove tubs with a front apron, but nothing seems to be wide enough or the style is lame. The tub can go pretty wide, probably up to 42". The deeper the better. Modern / contemporary style house. Will also double as a shower.
I've looked at the Americh Madison, and it's too expensive for something that I'm not sure I'll fit in properly anyway. Also looked at the Kohler Archer, and it's a contender since it looks good and can have a raised overflow for deeper water, but will I fit? I don't know. I'm probably not too big on jetted or air tubs given the location of the tub on the 2nd floor, the fewer holes the better. Not saying never, would just prefer a soaker.
I'm pretty new to all this, so maybe there's some awesome tub styles out there that I'm not familiar with. I've looked at corner tubs, which would fit, but nothing jumps out at me as having much more space in it than what I can get with a standard. It'd be cool if I could get a friend in there if you know what I mean, but there may just not be enough space.
Beyond a standard tub, are there any other kinds of tubs or suggestions that people would have for me?
