Finding the Best Freestanding Tub for Your Home

Finding the perfect freestanding bathtub for your home is a dream come true. It takes some thought and consideration before you can enjoy the luxurious soak, but it’s well worth it in the end. Here are a few things to consider when looking for the best freestanding bathtubs.

Choosing the Best Freestanding Tub for Your Bathroom

The best freestanding bathtubs for your room will vary based on several factors, including the size of your room, your style preference, and which materials you like best. Considering these key factors will not only make your bathroom functional, but also give it the vibe you are opting for, whether it's upbeat and vibrant, or elegant and stated.

Find Your Dimensions

The first thing you’ll need to know is what size tub you’re looking to put in your room. This narrows down your options immediately and gives you an idea of how much space you’ll have in the rest of your room.

Freestanding tubs are immensely popular in remodels and because of this, they are now widely available in different sizes and styles. These tubs are often taller than other tubs and allow for complete immersion when you are bathing, but this can make it difficult for some people to get out of the tub. Keep your limitations in mind when choosing the right size tub for you, or choose a waterproof safety step to help you get safely in and out of the tub.

Choose Your Style

The best free standing tub will display your style preference, whether it is modern and trendy, or traditional and classic. Think about how you will be using your tub, and how often. Are you shooting for the most comfortable freestanding tub you can find or one with design aesthetics?

Choosing the best stand alone tub isn’t always easy. These top freestanding tubs come in a variety of different styles, including:

  • Pedestal. The tub sits on a pedestal base.
  • Slipper. With one or two sloping sides, this tub allows people to recline comfortably.
  • Clawfoot. This style has feet that raise the tub off of the floor.
  • Roll top. The tub's edges “roll over” giving the tub a more comfortable fit for relaxing.
  • Soaker. A standard tub, this tub is deep enough for bathing and one of the best small freestanding tubs available.

Pick Your Material

The best stand alone bathtubs come in a variety of materials, and there are some key factors to consider when looking at these different options. Some tubs are extremely heavy and hard on your floors, and other options are high maintenance. Here are some of your choices:

Acrylic. Some of the best freestanding soaking tubs are acrylic . They are durable, versatile, and lightweight. They are resistant to discoloration and staining, and also to scratches. These tubs are easy to maintain and can be molded into many different styles.

Stone Resin. Many of the best modern freestanding tubs are stone resin . The composite material is high-quality and low-maintenance and not as heavy as pure stone. These tubs are non-porous and extremely durable. They are also easy to clean and retain heat from the water very well.

Cast Iron. People love cast iron for the vintage, classic feel, so these are a popular option. Cast iron is resistant to scratching but expensive to repair if damaged. They are also fantastic at retaining the heat from the water. These tubs; however, are extremely heavy and may require a reinforced floor before installation.

Wood Wooden bathtubs are truly breathtaking. Made from a variety of woods, including walnut, maple, ash, padouk, oak, and sapele, these tubs make a bold statement in any bathroom. Using cutting-edge technology, we use a proprietary manufacturing process to make these tubs are durable as they are stunning.

Some other options are stainless steel, stone, and copper. Many of these options are high-maintenance and are not water resistant, so upkeep on these styles is a must, but they can also be some of the most comfortable freestanding soaking tubs available.

Finish Up By Choosing Your Extras

If you’re one that likes to spend time soaking in the tub, having the extras makes all the difference between a quick wash and a luxurious, relaxing soak. The little things, like whether your faucet is deck-mounted, wall mounted or freestanding can make a difference in enjoying your bath, or constantly bumping your knees on the faucet.

Additions like hydromassage and air massage can help you relax and feel amazing after a long day. Tranquility systems can add temperature control and mood lighting for the ultimate experience. For the most luxurious soaks, Aquatica’s Therapy Systems provide massage therapy, aromatherapy, heat control, and much more.
