Creative Ideas for Your Old Bathtub After a Bathroom Remodel

Aug 17, 2022

A beautiful modern bathroom with a walk-in shower and bathtubOne concern that faces many homeowners who are about to undergo a bathtub replacement is what to do with the old tub. Thankfully, if you haven’t yet embarked on your bathtub replacement project, you can rest easy knowing that Jacuzzi Bath Remodel will take care of hauling your old tub for you. This means less mess—and less stress—for you, as you can count on having a team of experts do all the hard work for you from start to finish.

If, however, you’ve recently completed a bathroom remodel at your home that involved a bathtub replacement done by another company, you may be left wondering what to do with your old tub. It’s a large fixture, after all, so it may be worth upcycling it into something new rather than simply having it removed. There are plenty of creative ideas on how to repurpose your old bathtub after a remodel, including:

1. Turn It Into a Planter

A bathtub isn’t just the perfect size and depth for bathing comfortably—it’s also ideal for using as a home for your outdoor garden! Place plenty of soil in the base of your old tub and use it as a giant flowerpot, or even a spot to keep your own herb garden for getting creative in the kitchen. To truly make your old tub the star of your outdoor area, consider painting it a bright color or otherwise upgrading its appearance.

2. Use It as a Creative Guest Seating Option

If your old bathtub was a clawfoot tub, the feet make it a good option for repurposing as a form of seating. You could transform it into an outdoor sofa, bench, or even an indoor couch depending on what material your old tub is made from. It’ll take some serious DIY capabilities, but it’s a weekend project that can add a unique touch to your home that has all your guests talking.

3. Transform It Into an Outdoor Pond

Bathtubs are perfect for holding water after all, so why not add a serene touch to your garden by using your old tub as a peaceful pond? Post-bathroom remodel, place your former bathtub into an easily dug hole in your back garden, seal the drainage area, and repurpose it as a place for water-loving birds to gather.

4. Try Using It as an Ice Chest or Drink Holder

If you’re the type of person who loves to host friends and family for all sorts of gatherings, try keeping your guests refreshed by transforming your old tub into an ice chest or drink holder. You can get as creative as you like here, whether you encase the old tub in an entire chest or simply throw some ice in the bottom when needed to keep all your favorite beverages cool. Either way, your guests will surely get to enjoy the unexpected touch leftover from your bathroom remodel.
