As part of my home-buying process, I’m collecting home design inspiration photos like Celine Dion collects giant mansions. Last week, I drooled over dreamy kitchens. This week, it’s bathrooms — more specifically, bathtubs. Here are 15 fairytale bathtubs to inspire you (“ooh I want that!”) and depress you (“there is no way in hell I could ever afford that!”). Proceed with caution…

showering with men

Between our razors clogged with pieces of leg hair to the mold growing on the walls that belongs in a museum, it’s a wonder we ever let dudes into our bathrooms. But let them we do. In fact, he might just be hopping into your shower alongside you for one of these nine types of showers us ladies have been known to take with our dudes: Keep reading »

Do Not Want: Shower Coach 5-Minute Shower Timer

Big Bather
The art of the bath. Read More »

I am what one might call a leisurely bather. If one wished for some reason to paint me in a less flattering light, “bathroom hog” may or may not be the term best used to describe my habits. I can say with all honesty that I have never taken a shower in under 20 minutes; my ideal duration ranges from 45 minutes to an hour. I don’t necessarily want to take that long, it’s just that with all the shampooing, deep conditioning, exfoliating, shaving, Clarisonic-ing, and cleansing required to keep me looking just barely presentable, there’s no way I’m getting in and out of there in 15 minutes. I’m sorry, that’s just the way it is, and I definitely don’t feel guilty about making you wait outside the bathroom door for four hours. I will, however, cop to feeling the tiniest bit sheepish about the havoc I’m wreaking on the environment as a result of my over-indulgent tendencies. While I absolutely under no circumstances do not want this Shower Coach 5-Minute Shower Timer (I have enough passage-of-time anxiety already), it would probably be a wise $2.99 investment on my part. And hey, just because the sands of time are not shifting in my favor doesn’t mean I actually have to get out, right? [Complex]

bishop trotter bathtub photo

A mini-explosion occurred on the Internet this week when Bishop Larry Trotter, pastor of a Chicago mega-church, posted a picture of himself in the bathtub with his four-year-old granddaughter. Trotter sat in the tub smiling beside the little girl, whose face has been blurred out; both are covered in bubbles, so it’s impossible to tell whether he or she is naked (or wearing swimwear, or otherwise clothed).

Quite understandably, people got very concerned. Keep reading »

Just A Man Looking For The Right Bathtub

Every now and then, a very random, fairly creepy ad on Craigslist strikes me as incredibly sweet. Take this guy—all he wants is a clean bathtub. And you’re right, fella, everyone does need relaxation. [The Luxury Spot] Keep reading »

Don’t Drink The Bathwater, Even If It Is Beer

Beer is a tasty beverage, but I’m not sure I would want to immerse myself in a tub of the stuff. In the Czech Republic, the Chodovar Family Brewery offers just that. The beer is warm, not steaming, and herbs and beer foam float at the surface. Klara, a balneologist (balneology=the science of baths) at the brewery says a beer bath can soothe muscles, warm joints, and heal the complexion. Supposedly, it’s not as sticky as a bar floor, so maybe I would enjoy soaking up some hops. Bubbles are overrated, anyway. [Sydney Morning Herald] Keep reading »

Coffee, Tea, And Chocolate Baths

Scientists and anti-aging specialists are really into researching the health benefits of drinks like coffee, tea, and red wine, and there seem to be positive advantages, such as discouraging the development of colon cancer and the like. But those benefits come from consuming the beverages in moderation — so, what does bathing in them do? At Yunessun Spa Resort, about two hours west of Tokyo, you can soak in communal baths filled with Japanese sake, green tea, and coffee, in addition to the more traditional Dead Sea spa and Turkish hamam. The resort claims that red wine rejuvenates, coffee fights fatigue and helps beautify the skin, Japanese rice wine bath warms the body up, and green tea enhances the immune system. They also offer a chocolate bath, which supposedly encourages weight loss. Yum. We’re wondering if anyone takes a sip while no one’s looking. [Times Online and Yunessun Spa Resort] Keep reading »
