Not the wooden tub of yesterday…
Are wooden bathtubs environmentally positive? If you grew the bamboo or cedar in your backyard and then made it yourself—definitely! These examples might not be the greenest and they cost a pretty penny, but it must feel wonderful to bathe in wood. In the past bathtubs were made of wood, marble or ceramic tile. Cast-iron tubs came into fashion starting in the 1880s, then enamel over steel…now bathtubs are mostly formed acrylic, fiberglass, or porcelain, on steel. Wood holds the heat longer than other tub materials. Unfinished wood tubs must be used regularly or kept partially filled with a bit of water to prevent them from drying out and warping or shrinking.

Cedar is one of the best woods for a tub, but there are many others listed on this page that would perform well.
In some areas of the U.S. wooden tubs might be against code- check your local building laws.

I hope that you are well.
I’m contacting you from British GQ magazine, with regards to the interiors advertorial pages I put together for the magazine. We’re currently working on the JULY issue of GQ which will hit the shelves on the 2nd June. I think your products would be a perfect fit for GQ, so I would be delighted to invite you to work with us on these pages.
The page will be entitled ‘’Bachelor Pad’ and will promote a range of interiors and products that we believe are well suited to GQ and our 127,040 affluent and discerning readers. GQ is the world’s leading men’s title so we are keen to feature companies and products that fit in well with the upmarket tone of the magazine and its editorial content.
Our readers are predominately affluent professional men (average age = 34) who do not have the time to shop around and research into furniture and interiors, so look instead to GQ for inspiration and guidance. Our readers have collectively spent over £45 million on antiques/art in the past 12 months (TGI GB 2013, Q1 Oct 10-Sep 12) so have the disposable income to be able to afford your products and be returning customers.
I would love to be in touch to discuss opportunities to appear on this advertorial page in GQ – prices start from just £275 + VAT. Is this something of interest to you?
Please do not hesitate to contact me on 020 7152 3611 if you require any further information or have any questions
As I am surer you can imagine this page is very popular so please do let me know as soon as you know whether to go ahead with it or not
Look forward to hearing from you.
