Alcove tubs are commonly paired with 3 acrylic bath walls and are installed against the wall in a bathtub surround. This is the most commonly used bathtub model as it can be installed with a shower trim kit, which gives you have the option to either take a quick shower or relax in a bubble bath. Alcove bathtubs are the best option for shared bathrooms because they are versatile, have shelf space, and come in a variety of sizes to fit any space.
Drop-in tubs are very similar to alcove tubs, except bath walls are not required. These tubs can be installed against the wall, or in a customized bathtub surround. Drop in tubs are usually deck-mounted, allowing space around them for shampoos, soaps, and other bathing essentials. Drop-in tubs can be used in both small and large bathrooms. Some drop-in tubs are designed with an optional undermount installation option, meaning the tub's rim is installed under the back surround.
Walk-in tubs are designed with a built-in chair-height seat and watertight door and are installed against a wall. Walk-in tubs make bathing easier and safer for people who have limited mobility, are elderly, or who have physical disabilities that make daily bathing difficult. These tubs can be retrofit to fit the space of a standard bathtub, which helps make safe bathing accessible to everyone. Walk-In bathtubs come as a regular soaking tub or can be designed with a massage system.
