Vessel, An Amazing Way to Relax

  • Amazing Tub Design

     Who doesn’t love relaxing in a hammock? For me, there is nothing better than spending an afternoon reading a good book and lounging in a hammock.

    What if that hammock was in your bathroom and full of water?

    The designers at Splinter Works said they were “Struck by the synergy between the shapes of two compelling symbols of relaxation, a hammock and a bath tub, Splinter Works were inspired to develop a piece that would provide the ultimate vehicle for total escapism. “

    I personally can’t think of a better way to relax. I’m more of a shower person myself but I think that’s because my bathtub is not a hammock. If my bathtub were a hammock, you might have a difficult time finding me anywhere else.

    Unfortunately for me the price tag on this unique way of cleansing is quite literally 3 or 4 times higher than my actual bathroom redecorating budget. For those of you with a higher budget than mine, the Vessel comes in an assortment of colours. Splinter Works is a company from the UK but the Vessel can be purchased in the US.

    Anyone, like me, who may be working with a tighter budget, there are many relaxing bathtubs that can be found right here in the Ottawa area. They may not “float” off the ground but they can still hug you tight and have similar curves to the Vessel. Some of these tubs will require a surround, which can and should be made of a solid surface such as granite. TNT Tile & Marble has many great granite pieces from neutral tones to stunning wow factor colours. Any colour you need to help bring together your relaxing spa bathroom.

    We spend every day in our bathrooms in some form or another, this space should be one you truly love!
