7 Metal Tubs That Steal the Show

Industrial-style metal tubs offer lightweight, unique alternatives to porcelain. Could a metal tub be for you?

That feed trough you’ve seen horses drinking from in a pasture can be a showstopper in your bathroom too.

2. A Modern Trough

If you don’t want to put in the labor to retrofit a feed basin, you can readily get a replica designed for bathing.

This tub is a modern interpretation of a feed trough, made of galvanized steel that’s been enamel-plated and painted flat black. The homeowner wanted something that reflected the property’s roots as a farm, says Jule Tsai, a designer with Turnbull Griffin Haesloop. The house is surrounded by pasture dotted with vintage feed troughs. This tub was a great way to invite that rustic feel inside.
