If a quiet, trickling brook is your idea of relaxation, you might consider implementing some infinity bathtub design ideas in your bathroom. Infinity tubs allow water to overflow the edge into a surrounding channel. A pump recirculates the water back into the tub, and an in-line heater keeps it warm.

Many infinity bathtubs promote a spa-like experience with different hydrotherapy methods to gently massage the body. In addition, some offer chromotherapy—an option that uses colored lights, sequenced for maximum relaxation. Infinity bathtubs are also larger than normal tubs, usually about 6 to 8 feet long; this allows for whole-body immersion.

Infinity bathtubs afford multiple options for installation and design. Their top edge may be flush with a new stone, tile or wooden surround, or they can be dropped into an existing surround or alcove. They do require more structural support than do regular bathtubs. Other infinity tubs are designed to be level with the floor, giving the feel of stepping into a natural pool of water.

Though most infinity tubs tend to be rectangular, they are also available in oval, circle, and square shapes to satisfy your design choices.

Infinity bathtubs are perfect additions for bathrooms with picture-window views of cityscapes, gardens or mountainsides. Creating a clean, crisp spa bathroom or a warm-hued, cozy bathroom complete with a fireplace are all achieved with the luxury of an infinity tub.

If you are looking for a more modern feel, you might have your infinity tub filled from the ceiling. If you are a bit less adventurous, you can add waterfall fillers to the surrounds. Of course, rim-mounted faucets will also work with infinity bathtubs.
