Set Your Bathtub Free – Choose a Freestanding Bathtub
Freestanding bathtubs have recently become extremely popular in bathroom renovations. A freestanding bathtub can create a striking focal point in any bathroom. Some are almost sculptural in their design. Not only do freestanding bathtubs look great, there’s just something about them that whispers “relaxation.” A freestanding bathtub can transform even the most mundane bathroom into a lush spa-like retreat, a place to escape, albeit momentarily, from the hectic pace of everyday life.
When choosing a freestanding bathtub, it is important to ensure that the bath fits in well with the overall look of the space. Not every freestanding tub will look equally elegant in every bathroom. Fortunately, there is great variety when it comes to freestanding baths, so regardless of the shape or size of your bathroom, chances are there’s a freestanding tub out there somewhere that will look great in the space. A curved tub, for example, will add softness to an angular or boxy bathroom.
If you like the look of a freestanding bath but aren’t willing to give up the benefits of a built-in tub, then a semi-inset stand-alone bathtub might be right for you. This design incorporates the look of a freestanding bath with the convenience of a built-in tub. (Just think about that handy ledge you use to store your bath-time necessities, like soap and shampoo. This type of set-up is also a great way to incorporate a free-standing bath into a tiny bathroom.
If you are thinking about adding a free-standing bathtub to your bathroom, you should first know that isn’t a job you can do on your own. Instead, you should speak to an experienced bathroom contractor.
