Can I have a Freestanding Bathtub in a Small Bathroom?
A long time ago we had only a few options for bathtub designs, and we had to rely on other design features to create a focal point in a small bathroom.
Nowadays the options are endless. Not only do you have back to wall bathtubs, freestanding bathtubs, corner bathtubs, drop-in bathtubs, but they also vary in material, size, and shape.
In this blog post we concentrate on freestanding bathtubs in a small bathroom and why we think it’s something to consider in your next renovation project.
When we think about freestanding bathtubs, we are imagining a grand space with high ceilings, where it takes ten steps to walk to another side of the bathroom to reach your body lotion. In reality, this is not the case and instead we are dealing with tight spaces in a small bathroom.
A free standing bath can definitely create a statement piece in your bathroom, and you can highlight this area even further with gorgeous feature tiles or beautiful tapware colour like Brushed Brass colour.
If you are looking for a perfect shape, a safe option to go with is an oval shape or an egg shape. This shape is a bit more elongated and narrower and would be a great option for most spaces. It will still have a gorgeous profile with beautiful clean lines, even if it is closer to the wall.
Round freestanding bathtubs require more space around it and aren’t as practical as the oval ones because you can’t stretch yourself.
One thing to keep in mind is the tapware for the bathtub. If you are looking for a wall spout and a wall mixer, the bathtub needs to be in a descent distance so that the wall spout reaches the bathtub and water can flow into the bathtub without any problems.
If you want the tapware to come from the floor, you can opt for a high quality floor standing bath set that has a long neck spout and a shower set that is handy for cleaning the bathtub.
Free standing bathtubs can come in wide range of materials like acrylic, stone, solid surface, and concrete. Acrylic bathtubs come in gloss white or in matt white finish. So, you can choose the finish to match your other fixtures in your bathroom.
As you can see, you don’t have to steer clear from a freestanding bath tub in a small bathroom. If the space is quite small but you love the idea of a freestanding bath, you can get a smaller size like 1300 or 1400mm bath.
