Connecticut homeowners who are planning a bathroom remodel should consider installing a freestanding tub. Freestanding tubs are one of the bathroom design trends that can set the theme and focal point of the room. The style of the tub can create a vintage, contemporary or traditional look depending upon the style of tub chosen, and and can complement the rest of your home's decor.
A freestanding tub can offer more floor space in the bathroom than a built-in tub and deck. You can show off your bathroom floor with a freestanding or a claw-foot tub that elevates the bottom of the tub off of the floor.
The placement and type of tub you choose can create a unique focal point that stands out from other bathrooms. For example, elevating the tub on a platform near a window will create drama and draw a visitor's focus to that area. A tub that has colored or mirrored sides can be used to tie the wall color into the rest of the decor, to exaggerate the space by blending in with the floor, or to add vintage style and nostaglia to the space.
Freestanding tubs can be highlighted with a variety of accessories. Installing a chandelier over the tub, for example, will create a decadent, elegant atmosphere; placing a plant on a stand near the tub introduces natural elements that aren't often seen in a bathroom. For a more traditional and utilitarian look, a well-placed bench or a basket of towels, books or toiletries gives bathers a convenient way to find what they need without leaving the tub.
