Thanks to the feedback from my readers after my bathtub post (reinforced by a discussion with my architect and designer), I have decided to go with the standalone tub option. Doug from Tracery Interiors noted that most of my pictures feature the Kohler Vintage tub and the Waterworks Empire tub. Either tub is fine with me (the Waterworks tub is slightly smaller, but is more expensive; the Kohler tub is slightly larger, and costs less), but the real question is how it will look in the space. There is plenty of room to do what I want, and the tub will have a nice south facing window behind it. So, the question is - set it closer to the walls, or allow for more room?
Here is a standalone tub in a cozier setting.
Here it is with a bit more space between the tub and the walls, which creates an entirely different look and feel.
