Every which way

Now that the bathroom floor is in place, I couldn't wait another minute to shovel all the hardware bits and bops into it to clear out the dressing room. So in went the vanity desk and the big box with the vessel sink and the accompanying faucet, the boxed up toilet and the star of the room: the clawfoot tub.

The plumbing for both, sink and toilet, is already in place but our plumber still needs to hook up our tub so we're still free to pick a location for it.

[Position 1: To the left side, parallel to the window]

Our master bathroom measures a whooping and rather luxurious 132 sqft (that's 12 square meters for the European readers here). It's beautifully spacious and bright which is great, especially since the room is in a later top floor addition that has rather low ceilings. Position 1 sees the tub to the left side of the room next to the window. It's the first thing you see when you open the door to the bathroom and when you're lolling in it you have a view of the tree tops through the window and the future location of a wall-mount fireplace. There's plenty of room between the tub and all the other fixtures that are on the other side of the room.

[Position 2: At an angle in the corner]

Joe, our contractor, suggested we might as well flaunt the amount of space by angling the tub in the corner. Sink and toilet would remain on their side, but the tub would claim the majority of the space and the attention on the left side of the room. It looks a bit more dynamic but it needs some sort of visual counterweight on the left to help anchor the tub, don't you think?

There might even be another position possible: Position 3 (no picture though because I just thought of it). Technically we could turn the tub at a 90 degree angle to the left wall so it's parallel to the entry way and faces the side with the sink and the toilet (although that's not necessarily -the- most beautiful view).

I don't know. What do you think?
