Bathing is not just an activity for little kids. Taking a hot bath at the end of a long day can be a soothing way to unwind and give tired muscles a time out. But when your bathtub is barely big enough to squeeze into, a bubble bath can cause more pain than gain. We scoured some of our favorite home appliance designers’ latest collections to bring you five tubs that would make anyone want to jump in.

Reminiscence™ Slipper Soaking Bathtubbathtub

If you're looking for a simple fixture that will add a little elegance to your bathing routine, a claw foot tub from American Standard can add a vintage vibe to any bathroom. Make sure your claw foot tub is equipped with a practical end drain outlet and a textured bottom for safety and functionality. We love this model's molded headrest so you can recline and relax in style.

 

Tara Comfort Bathbathtub

Unwind in the oasis of a Tara Jacuzzi bath that lets you create whatever massage experience you desire at the touch of a button from a gentle, soothing current of caressing water to a deeper tissue massage to help rejuvenate sore muscles. The tub is equipped with four adjustable TheraPro jets, a contoured backrest for ultimate comfort, and a slip-resistant bottom—so even the clumsy can lay in leisure. The Tara whirlpool bath's corner configuration and simple styling make it the perfect fit for any contemporary bathroom décor.

Era Double Ended Luxury Bathbathtub

Freestanding bathtubs might be a tradition from days past, but luckily a number of brands have reinvented them to incorporate modern technology. While many pedestal tubs employ jets and massages to promote relaxation, this tub recalls simpler times with a more traditional bathing experience. This tub, one of Jacuzzi's classic Italian designs, is simple, unfettered, and will enhance the design of your bathroom and the quality of your tub time

Dignity Walk-in Tubbathrub

If you have a large enough bathroom to accommodate a tub you can step into, this deep, walk-in model will let you soak in the lap of luxury. The tub, available from Simply Bathtubs, offers an array of options including an air massage system, hydro massage, or a combination of both. The contoured seat measures 17-inches in height, which is perfect for someone with back problems or who has difficulty sitting down and getting back up.
