Egg shaped bath tubs bring a natural look to even the slickest, fanciest bathroom. Something in their asymmetrical lines says, "I'm perfect, but not too perfect." Egg shaped bath tubs are available, much to the relief of people shopping on smaller budgets, in acrylic, as well as more expensive materials. More modern than traditional, an egg shaped bath tub is a good option for someone looking for a modern tub with soft lines. After all, modern does not have to mean angular.

Some of these tubs are harder-to-find models by Italian designers. Some are available online, or even through big box stores. All of them are lovely, artistic choices for a bathroom remodel. If your remodeling contractor has not suggested an egg shaped bath tub, speak with him about it if these tubs appeal to you.

How do egg shaped bath tubs look in traditional bathrooms? Amazing, in one word. Click over to Hometalk.com to see a recent bathroom remodel by an Atlanta contractor, which includes a gorgeous egg shaped bath tub. The look is classic, but contemporary, and oh-so-peaceful.

The Americh Contura: As much as a person could long for a bath tub, I want this egg shaped tub. I am so taken by it because it looks like it is made of adobe, but it is shiny and actually acrylic. It is sculptural, with rounded edges, and simple. However, the Americh Contura egg shaped bath tub is deceptively simple looking. Hidden in it are whirlpool jets for a truly luxurious soaking experience.

Agape Design Spoon XL: This egg shaped bath tub is exceptionally elegant. It is also made from Cristalplant® biobased material, an ecologically friendly alternative to acrylic. This huge bath tub offers an exceptional soak. Its "concave internal profile allows optimal water distribution." Have a look at it if you want to see an absolutely stunning egg shaped bath tub.

Rapsel Kea: The Kea by Rapsel is available in freestanding or wall-to-wall versions. The Kea is a hybrid of a rectangular bath tub and an egg shaped bath tub, which features delicate lines and a sophisticated profile. It is also made of Cristalplant® biobased material. The Kea is a statement bath tub designed by Italian designer Marco Piva.

Nella Vetrina Vov Aki: This high style, super luxe bath tub by Italian bath fixture and home decor company Nella Vetrina is an egg shaped bath tub that appears to be carved into a solid rectangular block. This sculptural piece is made of a single block of white K-plan. K-plan is a material that is easy to clean and to maintain. It does not scratch or chip easily.

Ove Decors Gloss White Oval Pedestal Bath Tub: Builders will like this egg shaped bath tub because it has a reversible drain and 4 adjustable leveling feet. Stylish homeowners will like it because of its shape, which is reminiscent of an old-fashioned soaking tub.
