A Guide to Choosing Your Ideal Freestanding Bathtub 

Dreaming of a spa-like escape in the comfort of your home? A luxurious freestanding bathtub can turn that dream into a reality. As you embark on your journey to find the perfect bathtub, you're likely here for some expert guidance. We've got you covered.

Selecting the right freestanding bathtub is more than just a functional choice; it's an aesthetic decision that should seamlessly blend with your bathroom decor, accommodate your space, and deliver the ultimate relaxation. Let's explore the key tips for choosing a freestanding bathtub that will transform your bathroom into a serene oasis.


Defining Your Style

Crafting Your Bathroom's Aesthetic

Freestanding bathtubs come in an array of designs, ranging from sleek and modern to timeless and traditional. Given that your bathtub often sets the tone for the entire bathroom, choose wisely.

  1. Modern Style: Characterized by its sleek, ergonomic, and visually appealing designs, modern freestanding tubs add a touch of sophistication to your space. Consider the Obliquo 67'' White Free Standing Bathtub (KFST1667) by Kube Bath for a contemporary oasis.
  2. Traditional Clawfoot: Nothing exudes elegance quite like a traditional clawfoot bathtub. Elevate your bathroom to regal status with the York 69" Acrylic Clawfoot Freestanding Bathtub (VA6310-L) by Vanity Art, complete with chrome accents.
  3. Transitional: Seeking a balance between contemporary and classic? A transitional style like the Elora 67.5" Acrylic Freestanding Bathtub (VA6513) by Vanity Art offers versatility that complements various decor styles.


The Power of Color

Setting the Mood with Color

Color is a pivotal yet sometimes underestimated element when selecting a bathtub. It plays a pivotal role in defining the ambiance of your bathroom. Here are some color ideas to inspire your choice:

  1. White and Classic: For a timeless, warm feel, opt for a clean and crisp white hue. The Contemporanea 59'' White Free Standing Bathtub (KFST2159) by Kube Bath, with its pure white acrylic finish, brightens up your space.
  2. Bold Black: To inject drama and clean elegance into your bathroom, consider an intense black hue. The Alto 67.7" Acrylic Freestanding Bathtub Black (VA6812-BL) by Vanity Art makes a bold statement, especially when paired with a matching freestanding black bathtub filler.
  3. Red or Peachy Pink: Add a dash of playfulness and glamour with a vibrant tone like the York 69" Acrylic Clawfoot Freestanding Bathtub in Red (VA6311-RL) by Vanity Art. It's a show-stopping focal point for your renovation.


Finding the Perfect Size

Sizing Up Your Space

Choosing the right size for your freestanding bathtub is crucial. It should ideally serve as the centerpiece of your bathroom, with ample space on either side. Factors to consider include your preferences, budget, and your home's design. Additionally, don't overlook the weight of the bathtub!

  1. Compact Options: If your bathroom space is limited, consider compact options like the Ovale 59'' White Freestanding Bathtub (KFST1459) by Kube Bath, ideal for small bathrooms or those wishing to maintain a shower-tub combo.
  2. Spacious Retreats: For larger bathrooms, indulge in a wider and more spacious bathtub, such as the Ella 71" Acrylic Freestanding Bathtub (VA6517) by Vanity Art. Its extra length ensures a truly relaxing experience.


Drain Position Matters

Paying Attention to Detail

Even minor details like the drain position can significantly impact your bathroom's aesthetics and functionality. Here are the drain position options to consider:

  1. Side Drain: Perfect for a comfortable soak, side drains are positioned either to the left or right. Consider the Solato 67" Freestanding Bathtub (KFST7867) by Kube Bath, which offers both end and side drain options.
  2. Centre Drain: For spacious tubs built for two, a centered drain is ideal. The Palma 59" Acrylic Freestanding Bathtub (VA6815) by Vanity Art, with its central drain, offers a symmetrical look.
