Drop-In Tubs

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 surrond.

Freestanding Tubs

Freestanding tubs stand on their own and do not need to be installed against a wall, although they can be installed against a wall if needed. Freestanding tubs are a luxurious option and are commonly used in a large master bathroom. Freestanding bathtubs require special freestanding tub fillers, and can only be used to take baths. Bathrooms with a separate walk-in shower pair nicely with one of these elegant deep-soaking tubs.
