When it comes to choosing what type of bathtub you would like in your new home, or what type of tub you would like to choose after your renovation is done, there are plenty of choices to choose from including: freestanding tubs, corner tubs, and tubs that simply go against the wall.
All of these have their benefits and disadvantages, but when it comes to a budget-friendly option, choosing the standalone tub is the best option. Not only does it not require a boxed-in installation, but you don’t have to pay for all the tiling that would normally cover the piping portion of the tub. With freestanding tubs, all of the pipes are exposed including the fittings and if you are okay with that, then this type of tub becomes extremely budget friendly.
In addition to it being budget friendly, the freestanding bath tub has the following advantages:
You can place it absolutely anywhere in the room! Since the plumbing can be put anywhere due to its nature of being exposed, you can place the bathtub wherever it fits, or wherever it looks the best to you. This makes it an incredibly versatile option, which is what makes it so popular. Plus, the water can be fed through the floor, through the wall, or through the ceiling, leaving you with options galore.
A standalone tub also offers your bathroom added flair and design. You can make it the focal point of your bathroom, not something that gets pushed off to one side. This can make a bathroom look absolutely gorgeous and allow you to add some creativity into your bathroom theme.
Freestanding tubs have this recognizable luxury feel to them. They are an iconic piece to the bathroom, and when a guest walks into your bathroom, they will be able to feel the sophistication and luxury that surrounds them. It is a timeless piece of bathroom furniture that adds creative design and gorgeous aesthetic.
Finally, those who enjoy soaking away in a bathtub will get to enjoy the indulgence and decadence that comes with bathing in a freestanding, claw-foot tub. It truly is something that everyone should enjoy!
