Colony 60 Inch by 32 Inch Bathtub is rated

Soaking tub is just the right size.
Every home needs at least one adult-sized tub and this American Standard model does the job without taking up too much space. The depth and shape is great for that relaxing soak in the tub. We purchased this item for a master bath that also has a separate glass-enclosed shower. Some of the tiled tub deck will serve as a shower seat. For the tub hardware, we're using Kohler Devonshire polished chrome Roman faucets. Construction is in progress.

Perfect 5' tub!
I put this tub, the only one in the house, in our guest bath and my husband and I use it more than our large shower in our master bath. The deep soak is fantastic and there is plenty of deck space around it for soaps and shampoos. It even has arm rests if you like to read in the bath. And I love the interesting basin shape, very pretty and transitional in design.

Great American Standard quality
Looks very nice and fresh in our recently remodeled bath. Two matters to be aware of:
1. there's white and there's arctic white. If you're not buying the whole Colony series suite (we went with a Kohler toilet), be aware that the 'white' is quite a bit softer than the sharp white of some bathroom tile and other brands' porcelain. You might want to take a sample of your tile to a showroom carrying AmStand before ordering online for a better price.
2. this tub has a slight curve, even though it looks virtually straight in photographs (and even in person). When our contractor put a 3' level against it, there's a small but distinguishable curve bowing out. Very elegant... Being a perfectionist, he built out the front plywood panel with a bit of extra tiling mud so as to set the curve -- it worked great, but it did produce some muttering and fussing for an extra couple of days.
