Types of Bathtubs for Bathroom Remodel in Golden Beach, FL
Free-Standing Tub: Clawfoots, Slippers
Free-standing tubs are very cool, when you a looking to do a vintage remodel. They are unconnected to walls or any other surface. We recommend putting it in a large room, because you will need space around the tub, so you can climb in and out.
Slipper and clawfoot tubs fit into this category. They are perfect for a bathroom remodel in Miami Beach, FL. One major downside of free-standing tubs is that they have exposed plumbing. You can buy specialty plumbing parts that celebrate, rather than try to hide the exposure though.
Alcove Bathtub – Common
Alcoves are the easiest and cheapest tubs you can buy and install. You know, the alcove tub is the kind we all know, and many of us may have grown up with. It’s true. This tub fits in a three-walled enclosure. When the walls are tiled or fitted with panels, the enclosure can be used for a tub/shower combination.
Corner Bathtub: The Lap of Luxury
These are your fancy jet-driven tubs…you know the one everyone sees at luxury spas. They are great for indulging in-home spa therapy. Always expensive, corner bathtubs eat up lots of bathroom floor space and appear to have no practical use and water volume is needed.
Drop-in Bathtub: Freestanding But Not a Clawfoot
This unique bathtub requires you to have a carpenter build a deck or peninsula that juts into the room. Perfect for anyone that wants a custom design. The tub is then installed in that structure. Drop-in tubs come with their own rim.
