How to Choose a Bathtub


Consider factors like bathroom size and features when shopping for a tub for your remodel.


A shower is the fastest way to get clean when you're on the go. But when you've got a bit more time, the bathtub can be a relaxing alternative. Bathtubs are more than a place to wash


—they're a soothing reward, a meditative reprieve and a truly personal experience. Bathtub manufacturers understand this appeal and have produced a variety of styles, features and shapes to match any taste and budget.

Types of Tubs

Bathtubs have personalities. Freestanding and clawfoot types will boldly occupy a favored position in the bathroom. Alcove, drop-in and corner tubs often are nestled against walls and integrated into the overall scheme.


3-wall alcove tub-shower combinations are the most common tub type and are designed to maximize space. The unfinished ends usually get sandwiched between an exterior wall and a handy built-in storage cabinet. A wall-mounted shower is a typical accompaniment.


Drop-in tubs are the tub shell only. They're fitted inside a framed enclosure that's finished to match bathroom cabinets or tile. An enclosure is a separate item, so budget accordingly.


Undermounts are drop-ins destined for floor-level installation. Flooring, such as tile, covers the lip of the tub.


Corner tubs are variations on the alcove and drop-in designs. Their large, squarish proportions are conducive to dual bathing.


Freestanding tubs feature a sculpted bathing bowl on a solid base or a cradle.


Clawfoot tubs invoke images of a grand Elizabethan era of soaking. The signature legs support tubs that are especially deep. "Slipper"-type designs feature a high back for supporting the head and neck.
