Will a freestanding tub fit in my bathroom?
The freestanding tubs of today are extremely versatile and will fit most, if not all, design spaces. The beauty of remodeling a bathroom is you are able to choose the mood and motif you wish your bathroom space to embody. For some a freestanding bath looks perfect in the center of a large master bathroom and is showcased as the center piece for the room. Others choose a freestanding bath with just as much function as there is elegance and add a shower-head to their tub to replace a walk in shower.
Better yet, you can choose from different sizes and shapes in today’s market. Choose from a classic smooth edge oval or shake things up with a modified, sharp edged rectangular tub. One great design aspect of a freestanding bath is that it allows for more floor and wall to be exposed rather than built over seemingly making a bathroom appear more spacious.
What are some of the materials I can choose from for my freestanding tub?
Tub materials can include acrylic, stone, cast iron, acrylic, fiberglass and even copper. Some materials like copper and cast iron run with the classic, old school theme for tubs. Before modern plumbing these tubs would withstand and hold heat for long periods of time. Now with a switch of a faucet hot water comes in straight away. Popular and functional materials today include pure acrylic and resign which are both high quality and affordable.
Freestanding tubs are beautiful, but are they practical?
Absolutely! Centuries ago a freestanding tub was less for fashion and used more for practical bathing purposes. Today we can use a freestanding tub in our bathrooms for both! Freestanding tubs hold water temperature, provide adequate depth for soaking and provide a room with added space and elegance.
