When you think of unique, luxurious materials for your sinks and bathtubs, you probably don’t think of wood. After all, wood and water just don’t mix, right? Happily, we can dispel that myth – just don’t expect these products to be inexpensive or available at your local home improvement store.
If you’ve ever pined away for teak patio furniture, you know that teak is one wood that is inherently resistant to water, making it a natural (pun intended) choice for this gorgeous bathtub available from Box Art Shop. The site is in Italian (and the price tag is not for the faint of heart), but even if you don’t use Google Translate, the pictures are worth a look.

Maybe importing a teak bathtub from Italy sounds a bit too extravagant? If so, you’ll be happy to note that WS Bath Collections is located state-side and has tubs available in various woods, with either a matte or a mirror finish. We love the simple elegance of their Laguna Basic 02 model shown here.

Haven’t seen EXACTLY the wooden tub of your dreams yet? Another US-based company – Bath in Wood of Maine – offers custom-built wooden tubs that allow you to get as creative as you and your designer see fit. Their portfolio showcases a number of beautiful tubs, but we particularly like this one that has ADA-compliant grab bars artistically integrated into the design. “Safe” doesn’t have to be boring!
