Home Lovers: In Love With (Freestanding) Tubs

Home Lovers: In Love With (Freestanding) Tubs

If you are doing a bathroom remodel and want to add a freestanding tub, there are some things you are going to want to take into consideration. 

Tub Size: 

Figure out how much space you have, not only in your bathroom, but also in your house with door ways, hall ways, and stairwells, since you will need to transport the tub. 

Consider who will be using the tub and for what uses. This will give you an idea of size and type, based on adults versus children, and simple bathing versus long baths. 

Tub Styles: 

There are different tub styles to accommodate bathroom designs and decor. From modern, to pedestal, to plinth. Soaking tubs are more conducive for longer baths, while slipper tubs are higher on one end which makes it more comfortable for resting. 

Tub Materials: 

Acrylic: Lightweight and comes in a variety of designs. 

Cast Iron: Heavy, and great for a restored home with an old-fashioned design. 

Copper and Stainless Steel: Easy to maintain, and add a pop of design to your bathroom. 

Stone: Extremely heavy, so its important to make sure your floor can support such a heavy tub made out of materials such as marble or granite.
