The freestanding tubs are truly beautiful. And those pictures featuring sunny bathrooms and amazing tubs begging you to take a relaxing bubble bath are so appreciated. On the other hand, built-in tubs can be more space efficient and can function well as a shower or bathtub if you have a small bathroom.
We'll reveal you the good news and bad news about freestanding tubs and built-in tubs. And you can also admire these beautiful bathrooms in our photo gallery.
Firstly, freestanding tubs can be made from heavy materials that give a luxurious touch to your bathroom: concrete, marble and other materials that require extra reinforcement in your bathroom.
Whether you like a modern or vintage design, a freestanding bathtub is more lust-worthy. They are gorgeous pieces, designed for people that want to have a good bath in a stylish atmosphere.
On the other hand, there are also advantages for the built-in bathtubs. They are easier to use and clean, they use little space as are mounted on the walls, and you can have also shelves mounted for storing bath and beauty products.
The cons of having a freestanding bath include a more expensive price, and you can't combine a shower with a tub. They are generally larger and you use more water for taking a bath than for having a shower.
On the other hand, cons of a built-in tub feature the need to place it in a corner, and it must rely on its surround for the style and unique look. The installation is a little bit more difficult, built-in tubs require sealing, mounting, and often the creation of a special surround.
