Most people don’t think about a bath tub beyond it’s being in your home and its ability to provide you with a good soak after a long hard day’s work. But what happens when you decide to rip the old bath tub out and put a nice new one into your bathroom? Where do all the old bath tubs go after their years of faithful bubble bath giving service?
Well they used to get thrown on the rubbish heap. Truth! But now, with the advent of upcycling we are seeing a great many old and discarded home décor and design items finding new lives as completely different things! And this applies to bath tubs too!
So if you are renovating your bathroom, before you toss your old bath tub out in the trash, stop to consider whether one of these great décor and design ideas using old bath tubs might not be right up your alley!
If you are renovating your garden at the same time as your bathroom, then now would be the perfect time to think about putting in a pond! A very clever décor and design idea using old bath tubs is to use your old bath tub as a pond. And it’s quite a simple thing to do too. All you have to do is sink the bath tub into the ground and obviously line the plug whole to avoid leaks. But for a small garden this is a great solution, and far more cost effective for your garden décor and design that spending money waterproofing, concrete etc! And of course once the tub is sunk in, you can cover it over so it doesn’t look like a bath.Another great décor and design idea using old bath tubs is by upcycling your old bath tub into a flower box. This one we see pretty often, and can be really lovely, especially in an eclectic or quirky home! I think the idea is to emphasise the very bath-ness of it. Now this concept is not so regular but is still a stunning décor and design idea for using old bath tubs. Here the bath tub is being used as a flower pot, yes, but instead of having it outside, it’s being used to create a little indoor terrarium, which is doubling up as a coffee table! I think this indoor garden idea is just gorgeous!
