Soaking Bathtubs – A Great Alternative

Soaking bathtubs and freestanding bathtubs are a great way to change your typical bathroom aesthetic and function! First of all, they can help to relieve and wash away the stress that you’ve been dealing with all day, and secondly, they can turn the ordinary bathroom into an absolutely extraordinary luxury experience. Freestanding bathtubs can be installed in a wide variety of locations throughout your home, from your bathroom, obviously, to your patio, or even a garden area as an alternative for a whirlpool.

Their functionality cannot be denied, but in addition to being a great place to relax, it’s also a great way to bring that old world feel you’ve been craving even to the most modern of spaces. With both comfort and beauty at the forefront of their design, these freestanding tubs are an outstanding addition to any home.

Freestanding Tub Styles and Sizes

Soaking bathtubsWhen you’re in the process of choosing a soaking tub, you certainly have your work cut out for you, especially given the size and nature of our selection. Take the Aquamoon Tenna, for example. It’s 59-inch soaking tub, freestanding, and it omits the usual clawed style that you would often find with a tub of this nature. This, along with the Aquamoon Lisboa tend to fill the requirements of the retro look without going all the way.

If you really want to lean forward and into the modern look, then you would do well to consider the Aquamoon Bruselas 64 ½ white freestanding tub which provides you with a great space for bathing while conserving a considerable amount of space in your bathroom. The thing to remember about bathrooms, even larger ones, is that space will always be at a premium, no matter what. While you might not be able to literally increase the space, you can give yourself and your guests the illusion of more space, especially if your tub color contrasts with the rest of the space. Remember that the thinner sides inherent in most of our tubs will also contribute to a much tighter aesthetic, and once again, the illusion of more space, which is precisely what you’re going for.

Installing a Soaking Tub

One of the biggest questions that we receive regarding these tubs, is whether or not they can be installed in a traditional bathroom with traditional plumbing. The answer is going to be absolutely yes, actually. This question is not unfair, given the nature of the tubs. Soaking tubs are often compared to luxury items, but they do not require any sort of additional plumbing or filters for installation in the modern bathroom. If the tub is installed in an outdoor area, such as a garden, then it will need access to rough hot and cold plumbing lines as well as drainage plumbing lines in order to function properly.

Soaking BathtubsAs an alternative to the standard tub, a soaking tub is an outstanding option that will easily bring new life to an old bathroom. The great thing about soaking tubs, at least in the opinion of most, is that they don’t need to be mounted into a wall in order to be effective. The standard fiberglass tubs will always be a bit of a burden to you, especially if you would like to see more of an open concept throughout your bathroom. Free standing bathtubs are a great way to create that open concept, and they’re a great way to gain a few more decorating options within your bathroom. With the bathtub not firmly clamped to the wall, you can place more decorations, and quite frankly, you really are going to have more space, even if it only seems to be a few more inches.

Finally, because these tubs are not comprised of fiberglass, you will never need to worry about them breaking or becoming weak as you use them over the course of days, months or years. There is little doubt that free standing tubs are a great alternative to the standard, and in a way, we’re returning to a much older tradition by choosing to use soaking bathtubs over new fiberglass standard. If you’re ready to go back to the old standard, then now would definitely be a great time for you to start browsing our inventory. You’re bound to find something you like, whether you want to go over to the newer modern looking tubs, or go with the more basin-like standard we’ve all known and loved for centuries.
