Free-standing Bathtubs
If you’re looking for a way to add a touch of beauty to your bathroom without exhausting your life
savings, you'll need to look at obtaining a
free standing bath
. These attractive tubs are ideal as the
centrepiece of a large bathroom, placed in the middle of the room.
Looking at the price tags on some of the most luxurious free-standing tubs, you might wonder how they
could possible help you save money on your make over. But the thing is, a free-standing tub can save
you a lot in labour and materials.
Free-standing tubs have exposed pipes, so you don’t have to have special carpentry to put them in.
Free-standing tubs, however, can at times increase the initial cost of plumbing.
Free-standing tubs come in a wide assortment of kinds and style. Here are the most common types:
Claw foot
Claw foot tubs are deeper than most tubs and feature a sloped back and a straight front. They’re
typically constructed of enamel over cast iron. They’re most commonly available in the conventional
oval shape, but they also come or in a heart-shaped or round tub.
You can’t get a glass door for them, so you’ll have to acquire a shower curtain. A claw foot will give your
bathroom an antique look.

tubs are set on an inbuilt platform instead of on feet. They’re usually cheaper
than claw foot tubs, normally being made of acrylic. You can occasionally buy them in other materials.
They're oftentimes cosmetic, and their rarity makes them a bit of a novelty.
Because a pedestal bathtub doesn't include a drilled hole on the side for a faucet, the water can be filled
to a deeper level. Faucets are set up on the wall or brought up from the floor. © 2011
These tuck into a hard-to-use corner, freeing up other space that is more valuable. If you have a small
bathroom, a corner tub might be perfect for you.
Another nice feature of a corner tub, at least in certain cases, is that you might have better access to
existing plumbing. If you want a combination shower-tub, a corner tub gives you the advantage of not
demanding a shower curtain all the way around it, as other free-standing tubs do.
Corner tubs are available in free-standing and built-in types, so make certain to get the right one for
your needs.
Slipper tubs originated in Victorian times. They feature a back end that is taller than the front, yielding
your back added support. These come in a wide range of designs, so you’re bound to find one that you
want. You can, for example, choose from an selection of
bathroom taps
and feet.
This variety of tub includes a flat side that can butt against a wall. This lets you, in some circumstances,
re-use your pre-existing plumbing fixtures, saving you money.
These extra long tubs feature the taps and the drain in the middle of the tub, permitting two people to
bathe at once without either having to contend with sitting on the drain or fighting the taps. Of course,
you will have to allow extra floor space for these tubs, but maybe not as much as you might presume.
