Is there any greater feeling than getting home after a long day at work, kicking off your shoes, de-robing, and getting into a nice hot bathtub? To add extra ambiance, you might light a few scented candles and add some bath salts whilst the water is running. Either way, such a thing is priceless. If 2020 taught us anything, it’s how much we relish in our downtime and how excited we can get with the prospect of getting home from the office–after all, for many people in the United States, the home became the office. Either way, how we relied on our old bathtub to give us as close as we could get to a DIY spa treatment.


Let’s face it; social media is saturated with pictures of two legs sticking out of a bubble bath (potentially accompanied by a few lit candles and a glass of wine). There’s no point in denying it–American’s love their bathtubs.


But if it is time to retire the old faithful tub and replace it with a new bathtub, then you are going to want to celebrate it. The opportunity to post your own pictures of the new tub, with your own two legs protruding from the water like hotdogs from a surf, should be too hard to resist! So let’s have a look at a few ways to show off your latest bathroom renovation.

Lights, camera…bathtub?


There really is no point in showing off a bathroom renovation if there is no bathroom being renovated. A coat of paint and a little bit of grouting will go a smidgeon of the way towards making your bathing space more presentable, but it’s not a renovation, really, is it? It would help if you were talking about a top-down, head to toe makeover–and for that, you are going to need a bathtub replacement.


CMK Construction has all sorts of bathtubs and renovation ideas for your brand spanking new bathroom. From roll-tops to iron tubs, tiling to wooden surfaces, you won’t have much hassle trying to find a new place to wash up. Maybe there’s a tub within a range of whirlpool tubs that catches your eye. You won’t know unless you look.


Ok, there might not be much wrong with your old tub, but a new tub might be the change you needed without even realizing it. Especially considering the stresses of this past year, everybody needs an ideal place to relax and get away from the toughness of working from home. Also, it’s an opportunity to enjoy a little private space, away from family members who you’ve probably started to find are just as frustrated at staying at home as you are.


(Fun fact: according to some polls, most people’s favorite room is the master bedroom, whilst before the COVID-19 pandemic, that was the family room. Whether or not that has anything to do with privacy is entirely up to you…)

If you’ve got it, flaunt it.


American homes have so many more bathroom spaces these days, compared to previous times. Whilst America’s love affair with bathrooms cannot be truly understood; there’s no point in shunning it. Once you have your new bathroom, it’s time to go photo-crazy. Get the best camera you have (if that’s on a smartphone then so be it), light up all of your candles and place them along the length of your new bathtub. Fill the tub, remembering to add your bubble bath and salts so that the foam is high. Then, turn out the lights, point, and click. The flames will be all of the lighting you need and will provide a golden hue to your luxury.


It will be easy to fill entire albums of photos of the tub, but if you invest in a good memory platform for images this shouldn’t be a problem. Meet IBI. IBI Photo storage is a device created by SanDisk that can hold hundreds of thousands of images and make sharing them a lot easier. This way, all of those precious memories of the day you got your new favorite room in the house can be plastered all over your social media accounts before you know it!
