Japanese Style Soaking Tubs

After a long day at work, relaxing soaking tubs are a wonderful way to rejuvenate the human spirit.  We all face so much stress in our daily lives that it makes perfect sense to build a home with the means to relieve those burdens. They designed the Japanese Ofuro tub to ease aches and pains.

For me, water therapy helps me forget about trials and tribulation freeing my mind to think more positive thoughts such as time with family, fond memories of the past or contemplating a new vacation.

Whatever reasons and challenges exist, a good soak can help snap a person into the moment while changing to a more positive outlook. Cold climates can also benefit.

Hot or warm water relieves the deep chill in bones that come from extended exposure to cold. We treat muscle ache and arthritis with warm or cold water. The medicinal benefits are many and apply to many people.

Let’s get inspired and look at ten therapeutic designs being showcased in this article.


Wooden Japanese Style Hot Tub


Large Bronze Copper Bath

This bronze and copper Ofuro tub example is striking. Usually seen in faucets and shower heads, here it appears in its giant glory. What a great central piece for a bathroom!

Japanese Style Ofuro Tub Compact

This nickel example takes its inspiration from a Japanese Ofuro. Normally designed in wood but this metal one looks amazing.


Porcelain Style Bath Tub


Round Mega Bath Tub

This larger round one in the picture above could house a party of people. It is like a small swimming pool that could easily accommodate two adults. The granite is gorgeous on this piece featuring such nice marbling and a great rounded shape.


Copper Japanese Ofuro Tub

The copper model above has such great lines to it. I like that it is narrow on the ends helping conserve the amount of water required for a good soak. Notice how big the view is from windows providing natural light to the design.

I like how the bathroom flooring features some wood along with the stone. Combing those two materials helps it tie back to the other elements in the room.
