In most homes, the bathroom is simply a place where you get ready for work in the morning and ready for bed at night. For some, however, it can become a center of luxury, relaxation, and tranquility. One of the best ways to transform your bathroom is to invest in a beautiful bathtub. Not only can it become a stylish centerpiece, but it can also help you to slow down and enjoy your time, making every day feel like a spa day.

A freestanding tub – or a bathtub that stands alone, unconnected to any wall – is a great way to make your bathroom redesign stand out. It can be placed anywhere in your bathroom, and with the right positioning, it can make a small space feel significantly bigger. If you choose a freestanding tub, keep in mind that you won’t have any built-in space to store toiletries like shampoo, conditioner, or soap. However, you do have the freedom to find a storage solution that matches your aesthetic, like woven baskets or stylish shelving!
Clawfoot tubs are freestanding tubs, but they are so iconic that they deserve a category of their own. A clawfoot tub has visible legs that lift the tub several inches off of the floor, and there is an almost endless array of options for stunning legs to make a clawfoot tub the perfect addition to design. Once a staple in every home, clawfoot tubs have now become a popular element of vintage decor sure to draw compliments.
An alcove tub is among the most common designs for tubs in homes throughout the country. Its rectangular shape is fitted to three walls, and it is often accompanied by a wall-mounted shower. It is a good way to utilize recessed space, but it’s a difficult design choice if you want the elements in your bathroom to stand out.
If you are looking for a deviation from the typical tub design without sacrificing practicality, then you may want to consider a drop-in bathtub! Typically rectangular, these bathtubs are framed by a platform or deck, often made or covered in tile. The rim of the tub is often flush with the surrounding platform. This design option is easier to get in and out of than a freestanding tub, and it also provides a place to sit for those bathing small children. A similar design option is an undermount tub, where the lip of the tub is beneath the surrounding platform.
The next consideration you should make is what shape you want your tub to be.
It’s hard to match the smooth, soothing design of an oval tub. If you truly want to transform your bathroom into a spa-like space, then you should seriously consider this softer option. Your oval tub can still be a sleek design, and it can also offer some contrast to the sharp angles of a room.
When you want something with crisper lines, then look for a rectangular tub. It can make for beautiful parallels with other right angles in the room, and the clean, sharp shape fits with almost any aesthetic. A freestanding rectangular tub in particular will stand out, since most classic designs incorporate curves.
If you picture an angled tub, you may be picturing a bathtub with sharp angles, but in most cases, it’s the opposite. An angled tub refers to a bathtub where one end is higher than the other, often intended to support your head, neck, and back while you relax into the warm water. It helps keep you comfortable on those days when you just need a nice long soak. You can also find other design options with this feature, whether you are looking for a soft vintage touch or a more sleek urban design.
There are many design options out there, and some are harder to describe than simple shapes. Suffice it to say that you have the opportunity to blur the lines between shapes, especially when it comes to freestanding tubs. Combine the predictable shape of a rectangular tub with softened lines and edges, or add unexpected curves — if you’re torn between the shapes we listed here, you can likely find something in between!
