The average homeowner invests $16,000 on the total cost of renovating bathroom. When working with your bathroom contractors, you'll see a portion of your budget go towards your shower/tub area.
You can create a unique look to your bathroom by replacing your old tub with a freestanding bathtub. These tubs are perfect for bathrooms that are smaller where a built-in tub would be too large.
They're also perfect for the larger bathroom that has a separate shower and bathtub. Keep reading for four ideas to help you incorporate a freestanding tub into your bathroom remodel.
1. Tub with a View
Does your bathroom have a window with a stunning view? Then why not place your freestanding tub in front of it? What better way to enjoy the scenery than relaxing in a warm bath?
Just make sure that no one will get a view of you. Consider the placement of the tub so that you still have privacy.
2. Claw It up
If you have a more traditionally styled home, then a clawfoot tub is perfect for your bathroom. These tubs also work well in a smaller bathroom where you're limited on space.
You can complete the vintage look by using black hardware. This will mimic the iron plumbing of old. Complete the look by using other traditional materials in your bathroom, such as subway tile for the walls.
3. Create an Alcove
If you have a nook in your bathroom, this is the perfect place to put your tub. You'll need to measure the space to make sure you can fit the right sized tub into it.
To highlight this area as a separate space, change the quartz countertops. You could have a plain colored tile throughout your bathroom and then use a patterned tile under the tub in the alcove. This would provide some accenting while also dividing the space.
Use could install windows in the alcove to create a stunning focal point of the bathroom. Or you could have no windows and create a serene meditation space.
4. Tub with a Chandelier Combo
Add elegance to your bathroom with lighting that is sophisticated and stylish. To do this, you can add a chandelier over your freestanding tub.
Make sure that you only choose a lighting fixture that is rated for use in a bathroom. These fixtures have insulated electrical to prevent a short from moisture getting in.
If a chandelier isn't your style, you could hang a pendant light instead. This is a cleaner and more modern look.
By adding this lighting feature, you're layering the lighting in your bathroom. The ideal number is three layers of light.
