A savvy design for a concealed bathtub is to set it below a hinged wood-slat cover in the floor.
Many do not like to see modern appliances so they find ways to camouflage refrigerators, washing machines and televisions, most often behind panels. Some take this a step further, such as our featured guest bath in disguise where a shower is hidden behind a regular door. In a renovated a convent in Tuscany, the desire for a tub clashed with the lack of space due to the building’s past. So a concealed bathtub was discreetly hidden under a hinged wooden slat floor which swings away when the owner wants to enjoy a soak in the tub. You’ll notice there’s a cut out in the slats so it can can be lowered over the tub controls. This is a compact wet room with two shower curtains and a visible raised tile edge on the far side. But it has a twist. I have to wonder if this also serves as the shower when the floor is in place and I expect so — since water drains right through the wooden slats.
