Top 6 Freestanding Bathtub Styles

Freestanding bathtubs have become a staple in contemporary bathroom design, offering a blend of luxury, comfort, and style. With an array of designs to choose from, these bathtubs can be the centerpiece of any bathroom, no matter your style, turning an everyday space into a personal spa. Let’s dive into the six most prominent styles of freestanding bathtubs, and how each can elevate your bathing experience.

Oval Freestanding Bathtubs

The popular style of the oval bathtub stands out not only for its ergonomic design, naturally complementing the curves and contours of your body, but also for the classically luxurious feel it brings to any space. With an elegant appearance, the aesthetically pleasing oval bathtub can fit perfectly into a variety of bathroom layouts as a fantastic focal point. Plus, they can be found in a variety of sizes so as to perfectly fit your space. Oval freestanding tubs are a popular choice for those seeking to add a little bit of luxury into their bathing experience. Our most popular oval freestanding bathtub is the Oceanus, pictured below in the Ryal Suite at the Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World® Resort.

Round Freestanding Bathtubs

Round freestanding tubs, also sometimes referred to as Japanese soaking tubs, feature smaller diameters with higher walls for greater depth, allowing bathers to immerse themselves further into the water for a long, relaxing bath. Because of the smaller overall size, these make a great option for smaller or limited bathroom spaces. Available in a variety of sizes, our best selling round freestanding bathtub is the Atlantique, pictured below in a private residence remodel.

Rectangular Freestanding Bathtubs

Rectangular bathtubs are a timeless and versatile option, and can be placed strategically in bathrooms to optimize space. The ergonomic shape also provides maximum comfort for a more relaxing bathing experience. This stylish and statement-making bathtub brings a touch of modern luxury to any bathroom, and fits seamlessly with a variety of design styles. Our best-selling rectangular freestanding bathtub is the Linnia, pictured below in a private residence new build.

Single Slipper Freestanding Bathtubs

Single slipper bathtubs are defined by the one raised end meant for lounging, with the other end reserved for the drain and faucet. With its heightened end, these tubs provide enhanced back, neck, and head support for a supremely comfortable soak and maximum comfort for a single bather. Our best-selling single slipper freestanding bathtub is the Rosebud, perfect for smaller spaces and single bathers. If you love a long, luxurious soak, this freestanding stone resin bathtub is for you, and is pictured below at the Hilton in Columbus, Ohio.

Double Slipper Freestanding Bathtubs

Similar to a single slipper, a double slipper freestanding bathtub is raised at both ends for a perfectly relaxing reclining experience for two bathers, ideal for a shared bathing experience. These tubs come in a wide variety of styles, and their elegant curves bring instant glamor to any bathroom they’re installed in. Our Slipper bathtub can be found in homes and 5-star hotels around the world such as Four Seasons Hotel Denver, Colorado and Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World® Resort  World, and is pictured below at the Four Seasons Hawaii.

Double Ended Freestanding Bathtubs

Double ended freestanding bathtubs feature two rounded ends, offering the flexibility of bathing on either or both sides. The gentle slope of the walls on both sides provides comfort for one or two bathers, depending on the tub’s size. With their symmetrical design and central drain, these tubs are not only functional but also contribute to a harmonious bathroom aesthetic. Our best-selling double ended freestanding bathtub is the Imperia – this ultra-deep freestanding bathtub is the epitome of luxury, and is pictured below in a new build home by Pape Construction.
