Freestanding bathtubs are making a comeback, and so far, it looks like they are here to stay. While built-in tubs have their advantages, namely the option to be turned into a shower and tub combo, the freestanding tub offers several benefits you’ll want to consider as well. Here are five reasons why the freestanding tub trend might make sense for your space.
1. There are more style options for your bathroom
Let’s face it: built-in showers and baths tend to all look the same. With a freestanding tub, you have more options when choosing materials, finishes and shapes, allowing for a more unique bathroom design. Plus, freestanding tubs have a sculptural style that is more aesthetically pleasing.
2. Makes your bathroom appear larger
Freestanding tubs take up less room than the shower and built-in designs, helping you design a more open space. You can even invest in a tub with legs to create more floor space and show off more of your eye-catching tiles.
3. Creates a spa-like atmosphere
Who needs a weekend getaway when you can create a soothing sanctuary right in your own home? Freestanding tubs give your bathroom a spa-like look you’ll love. After a long day, relieve stress by taking a relaxing soak in your new stylish tub.
4. Gives you the opportunity to build a more spacious shower
If you have two bathrooms, why not have a freestanding tub in one and a shower in the other? This allows you to be more creative with your shower’s design and to make it bigger as well.
5. You can place a freestanding tub just about anywhere
Thanks to its versatile design, you can place a freestanding tub near the wall, in the middle of the bathroom…basically wherever you have the space! If you place your tub next to the wall, consider attaching a shower organizer on the wall to keep your bath products conveniently nearby.
Freestanding tubs are stylish, versatile and relaxing. If you are remodeling your bathroom, consider bringing a freestanding tub into your space so you can turn your bathroom into your own personal resort.
