What is a freestanding bathtub? 

Put simply, a freestanding bathtub is a tub that can be placed freely anywhere. They are finished on all sides, and stand alone without touching any walls. Traditionally, freestanding bathtubs have been regarded as a high-ticket item, more recently they have become available at various price points.

A freestanding bathtub makes a statement in your bathroom design, catches your eye and creates a luxurious ambiance. But beyond purely aesthetic choices, freestanding bathtubs also make for the most comfortable and relaxing bathing experience, since they are usually deeper than other tubs, and designed with the bathers’ comfort in mind.
