Where to place a freestanding bathtub?

The installation of a freestanding bathtub is as flexible as the bathroom design allows. Although they are commonly placed in the centre of the room to become the focal point, they can also be placed near a window to enjoy views of the landscape during a relaxing bath.

Considerations before choosing a freestanding or island bathtub

Here are a few things to consider before choosing a freestanding bathtub. 

Space and dimensions: How to choose a freestanding bathtub that fits my bathroom?

When buying a freestanding bathtub, we need to take the space available into account. Making sure it fits comfortably in the space and leaves enough free area to move around is essential.

Style and design: discover which freestanding bathtub styles suit your taste and décor

Although it may seem obvious, it is advisable to look at the overall style of the bathroom to choose a bathtub design that complements the existing aesthetic. 

Our bathtubs combine a classic look with a modern touch, resulting in solutions full of elegance and sophistication.

Materials and durability: What are the most recommended materials for an island bathtub?

The material your bathtub is made of determines its appearance, maintenance and durability. It is thus advisable to choose a material that is resistant and easy to clean. 

Acrylic bathtubs are popular because they are lightweight and can retain heat for a comfortable bath. They are resistant and their smooth surface is attractive. 

On the other hand, porcelain on steel baths combine durability and brilliance. They are durable and easy to clean, although they can splinter if hit with hard objects. 

However, experts agree that the best material for this type of bath is the solid surface. It is durable, easy to maintain, hard-wearing and very hygienic. Moreover, its characteristics allow for the creation of unique designs.

Additional features: explore options for hydromassage, lighting and other special features

One of the keys to choosing the perfect bathtub is to consider the additional functionalities it can offer. From hydromassage systems to built-in lighting options, these features can enhance your bathing experience and make it a moment of true relaxation.

Other features include the incorporation of a headrest for added comfort, an automatic filling function or even the possibility of integrated music
