Before we begin redesigning their bathroom, our clients frequently ask the following questions:

What to Look for When Buying a Freestanding Tub?

1. Calculate the dimensions of outsized items.

Before you do anything else, you need to figure out what size tub you want. This will help you narrow down your choices and rule out any tubs that won't fit in your space.

When choosing a freestanding tub, knowing your measurements is very crucial because they take up and require a lot more space. For the finest design and functionality, leave at least a foot of space between the wall and the basin on all sides.

2. Select a tub design.

Freestanding baths are available in a variety of modern and traditional styles. You must consider both beauty and functionality while choosing a tub style.

3. Select a material.

What is the significance of the bathtub's material?

When purchasing a standalone tub, weight is an important factor to consider. Depending on the material, freestanding tubs can be quite weighty.

Some floors may be unable to support the weight of a large freestanding tub and may require reinforcement.

4. Select a faucet

Freestanding faucets, deck-mounted deck-mounted faucets, and wall-mounted faucets are all options for freestanding tubs.

Freestanding faucets are placed on the floor near the basin, deck-mounted faucets are placed on the basin, and wall-mounted faucets are suspended from the wall above the basin.

5. Put the finishing touches on it

All that's left to do now is add the finishing touches to your stunning standalone tub. A freestanding tub may be styled in a variety of ways to make it a true center point in the space while also being suitable for everyday use.

Bathtub caddies are a terrific way to make your standalone tub more personal and unique.
