Today I took a client to visit the MTI bathtub factory to see how their beautiful engineered stone freestanding tubs are made, and to select one for her “new” master bath. These elegant tubs literally look like pieces of sculpture, and can be described as “art for your bath!” They start with stone powder, mix it with polymers, heat the substance, and pour into a mold. The tubs are then baked for several hours. Once they dry, they are sanded and polished into a fine matte or glossy finish, whichever is ordered by the client. We had the chance to sit in several tubs to test them out. Everyone at the company was so friendly and helpful, and they make an amazing product. Lead time for tubs is only about 2 weeks. We ended up selecting the Elise 5 tub in a Matte finish. It will coordinate nicely with the Carrara marble tiles we will be installing soon. Project starts in a couple weeks! Stay tuned!
