Today's bathtub of choice is the freestanding bathtub style. Once upon a time,
all bathtubs were free standing. Freestanding tubs have their roots in antiquity
and through the ages became known as the
clawfoot tub. Not surprising, history has repeated once again to showcase
new versions of this timeless classic.
Standing alone in bathrooms and style alike, the freestanding tub is the center
of attention in your bathroom. Not attached to walls for support, the freestanding
tub supports itself. Unencumbered by a surround of any sort, the freestanding tub
design frees up space, giving an airy feel and look to your bathroom. This creates
a spa‑like environment for soaking and relaxation.
Contemporary free standing tubs have evolved and
are available in a large variety of sizes, shapes, styles, and materials including
the popular clawfoot tub design. Free‑standing bathtubs with a very contemporary
look may come with a cutting‑edge design without pedestals. With built in
support, these tubs appear to sit directly on the floor. Other contemporary free‑standing
designs rest on wooden cradles or iron frames.
Whether your bathroom design is contemporary, traditional or rustic, there is a
freestanding bathtub style that takes your bathroom remodeling to breathtaking heights.
Things to Consider Before Installing a Freestanding Tub
- The first thing to consider
before installing a freestanding bathtub is space and size. Freestanding tubs are
larger than most drop‑in bathtubs so consider the amount of room available
in your bathroom before you begin the installation process. Also, it's a good
rule of thumb to measure the width and height of doorways you may be carrying your
freestanding tub through to make sure you'll have easy access to your bathroom.
- Take time to look at many
variations of freestanding tub designs. You don't have to go for an antique
or traditional design. Major manufacturers are producing contemporary versions of
the freestanding bathtub with very sharp angles and clean functional lines. Ask
a Tubz expert to help you find the right bathtub to suit your needs and budget.
- Keep in mind that the plumbing
may be visible because they come up out of the floor. This may motivate you to replace
old plumbing with new pipes and fixtures. Faucets don't always come in the same
range of styles and finishes as your other plumbing does so it may be a Is the shower
included in the design of the freestanding tub? If so, consider whether you would
like a handheld shower head or if you’d like the old‑fashioned shower curtain
around the tub. A Tubz expert can guide your decision making process as well as
introduce you to the latest advancements in shower set designs.
- Whirlpool, Soaking, or Air
Tub? That is the question. Modern advancements have given you the freedom to choose
whether your freestanding bathtub will be a whirlpool or Jacuzzi, air tub, or simply
a soothing place to soak. There's nothing better than relaxing your muscles
and worries in the warmth of a deep bathtub. Today’s freestanding tubs allow you
to personalize your bathing experience for healing, relaxation, and fun.
