Being able to relax and unwind in a warm bath is the beauty of a modern bathtub. A good soak takes you away from the stress and tension of daily life and leaves you feeling invigorated and refreshed. Houzz recently featured an article on how to incorporate side tables into a bathroom design. Having a side table next to the bathtub while bathing allows a person to set down items such as towels, shampoo, or the mandatory glass of wine. Side tables can be created from various types of items, such as stools, chairs, garden stools, benches, footrests, ceramic sculptures, drum stools, and even tree stumps.

It’s important to consider the size and general practicality of a side table for a bathtub. If a bathroom has limited floor space, it could pose a tripping hazard. The height is important too because it should be easy to reach without having to lean over the side of the tub. Materials are important because they need to be resistant to heat and humidity. The table surface should be flat and level to ensure any items place upon it are stable. Stability is also an important factor to consider. The side table would not be safe it was easily tipped over. So choose practicality and functionality over style.
