Whitespace 002 | Baths


I remember begging my parents for a bathtub in our home bathroom just so I could pretend to swim around whilst playing bubbles. Alas, during renovation, we had to remove the broken tub and replace it with only a shower head. Don't get me wrong, I love showers especially when I'm in a hurry but there's something special about owning a bathtub and the thought of wanting to relax in it. Without a doubt, I'd love to have a bathtub again in the future.

Fun fact about me, I love playing with bubbles. Yes, I don't care what anyone has to say and age certainly does not matter. I love bubbles and I'd love to try playing with bath bombs. Imagine going home after work or feeling stressed and exhausted, imagine the thought of pouring some stress-relieving bath soaks and watching TV shows on your iPad or something — doesn't that sound luxurious and comforting? That'd be such a dream come true!

Knowing me though, I'd still want to keep everything minimalist. So no overdone spa-like environment or anything, no dimly lit kind of environment and no flowers in my bath or candles around my tub (even though some of you might think, what do you mean no candles!?). All I ask for is a clean, minimalist looking bath experience in a simple bathroom environment.

As you can see, not only am I a sucker for predominantly white design, I am also into traditional, Japanesesque kind of wooden and ceramic design. I don't know about you but bath time is enjoyable for me and if I ever have these kinds of bathtub, I don't think I'd mind falling asleep midway.
How about you?Are you a bath or a shower person?

  1. I think I am both a bath and shower person. We don't have a bath tub at home, it isn't considered practical because of water issues, but I'd love to soak up if I get the chance. I'd also love to try bath bombs, I've been curious about them since I've heard about them.

    Those are great designs. So simple and no-fuse. I love the first and last photos!

  3. Ah! So relaxing. I love the clean + minimal space in all of these. I definitely am a shower person, though :D I love a good looking bathtub, but I rarely take one. I think I'd be more intrigued if I tried to make my bathroom a more relaxing/spa-like space. I will be moving in a couple months, and my husband and I are looking for our first house together, so maybe when we move I can finally create a positive bath-taking space! Haha.

  4. I am not a bath person. I prefer shower because it's faster since I don't exactly like spending time in the bathroom, haha! But I don't mind a nice bubble bath, but I rarely use my bathtub for that. I just use the bathtub to take showers.

    The bathtubs you shared above are pretty. I, too, love the minimalistic look of them. I really like the left bath on the fourth set of the photo. I also like the Japanese-style bath as well :)

  5. I love bathtubs because of those bath bombs! When I was at school, I'd use it after the tub got cleaned XD. It's a good way to relax. Whenever I see flower around tubs and stuff, I wonder who cleans up after it... It looks like a lot of work.

    I'd definitely want a tub that's easy to clean and is Instagrammable XD. All of them looks pretty good (especially the wooden ones). I'll be honest and say that I prefer shower because California is in a drought right now and rather not face criticism from people, aha...

  6. yessss! I love that minimalist look. I absolutely adore how the simplicity of the environment can make one so relax and calm. Same dream for the bath tub thing (though i have phobia due to all the horror movies where spirit / monsters would sit in the bath tub ect)
