Elegant, serene, luxurious: these are a few ways to describe freestanding tubs. They’ve made a big comeback during the past few years, and they make for a great focal point in large bathrooms. This style of tub generally requires more space than a built-in tub, but the final look comes off as a sophisticated accent to a well-designed bathroom space. Here we are looking at four freestanding tubs we’ve installed that have added a bold look in these homes.


1. This first freestanding tub (in bathroom #90) complements this minimalistic modern bathroom. The white tub matches the toilet and pedestal sink, and the white glossy surfaces of these three fixtures contrast heavily with the darker colors on the walls and the floor. The tub is oval shaped, but even with rounded corners it comes off as exceptionally modern since the corners are sharp and bold. The tub is set at an angle in the corner of the room. This unconventional placement gives the bathtub an eclectic look in this space.


2. This traditional design (in bathroom #40) uses a freestanding tub fitted with chrome claw feet to add a splash of style into this white and light green bathroom. The white subway tile wainscoting creates a fitting background for this tub, and the wall mounted faucet with the shower hose accentuates the Victorian style of this bathtub.


3. This rectangular bathtub (from bathroom #113) adds an allure in the far corner of this expansive bathroom. The natural lighting and large windows complement the luxurious spa style of this room, and the white freestanding tub acts as a great focal point for the entire space. The small details surrounding the tub very much accentuate this piece, including the basket with rolled towels, the bamboo bath mat, and floor mounted chrome faucet.


4. Our final freestanding tub example (from bathroom #4) shows that a freestanding tub can work even in a smaller bathroom space. This vintage style bathroom uses an elegant freestanding tub with a shower head and curtain that allows for showering or bathing in this space. One constraint of freestanding tubs is limited storage space, but this particular tub uses a shower curtain fitted with pockets to hold soaps and other bathing supplies. Even in a smaller bathroom, a freestanding tub can be functional with some creative considerations.
