The right bathtub will not only enhance your bathroom decor, but it will also improve your lifestyle, by providing a truly therapeutic bathing experience for your body and soul. Before you fall in love with a bathtub you see online, it is important to follow these simple steps, tips and recommendations to make sure you find the right freestanding bathtub to perfectly fit your space, design, body and needs.

Measure Your Space to Find the Right Size 

First of all, you need to carefully study and measure your space in order to find the best place to install your freestanding bathtub. Take a look at all the potential areas you could place the bath. This will help you choose the right size and shape bathtub to compliment your space, and provide you with maximum comfort and accessibility.

If you are decorating a very large bathroom, you can make the freestanding bathtub the focal point, by placing it in the middle of the room. If you have a fantastic view, then you should consider placing the bath beside the window. Mandy Moore chose to place her Aquatica Sensuality freestanding bathtub in front of her bathroom window to enjoy her beautiful views of nature. If you have a small bathroom and are stuck for space, you can measure the areas of the alcoves and corners to see if the bath would fit nicely there.

It is important to choose the right size of freestanding bathtub, which will also easily fit through doorways, hallways and stairways, so make sure you also measure these areas. Remember to leave at least 4 inches of space between the bath and the bathroom walls for installation and easy access for maintenance. 

Find the Right Bathtub Style to Match Your Bathroom Design

Choose the right bathtub style to express your personality and match your overall bathroom design. Once you have decided on the design concept such as contemporary, luxurious, traditional or minimal, you can select either Modern or Classic in the product filter. This will help you narrow down the best bathtubs to suit your design.
