Property owners review possible bathtub installations when revamping their current designs. Contractors highly recommend freestanding designs for more modern and stylish concepts. Freestanding choices are permanently installed in the bathrooms, but they aren’t as restrictive as more traditional styles. Homeowners who haven’t made a decision about a new tub should read through the four reasons why freestanding baths blow the rest of them out of the water.

1. More Flexible Design Choices
The bathtubs provide more flexible design choices. Homeowners aren’t restricted to one basic shape or size. Contractors create the tubs in a variety of shapes and designs. The homeowners choose their preferred shape for their bathroom design along with beautiful color or texture. Custom-built tubs provide the homeowner with exactly what they want. Standard tubs and shower combinations come in limited styles and present homeowners from getting more innovative bathroom designs.
2. Easier to Keep Clean
The tub designs make it easy to clean them and all the way around the base. Homeowners don’t have to worry about mold or mildew collecting around or underneath the tub. The basin design is also easy to clean out and eliminate any possible rust or lime deposits. Manufacturers provide explicit details for cleaning Painted Freestanding Bathtubs and maintaining the installations. The type of cleaning products that work best with the products is available in the product’s packaging.
Contractors also offer sealants for the painted tubs that increase the longevity of the color for many years. Once the sealants are in place, the baths won’t chip or crack due to regular use. However, abrasive cleaning products aren’t recommended for painted tubs always. Recommendations in the warranty documentation should be followed to maintain coverage.
3. Makes the Bathroom Look More Spacious
The freestanding designs give the illusion that the bathroom is larger than it is, and the owner has a more spacious look. The tubs don’t take up a full wall like shower and tub combinations. Owners place the tub wherever they want in the bathroom. Freestanding styles make the rooms look larger than average because the installation isn’t positioned against a wall in most cases. It is installed away from the walls to allow the owner to walk around it. Some owners choose tile flooring for their bathrooms when installing the freestanding options as it is more aesthetically pleasing and opens up more space inside the bathroom. The tubs are also used for spas-style bathroom renovations and remodeling projects.
4. Vintage, Antique Look
The bathtub designs provide a more antique look and provide a vintage focal point for any bathroom design. Customized tubs provide an old Hollywood style with claw-footing and polished porcelain. The faucets are elegant and provide easy to use shower heads in pristine styles that complement the bathtub installations. Contractors have a vast catalog of freestanding designs that meet the style preferences of the property owners.
Property owners who have considered freestanding tubs learn that they are more flexible designs. Versatility is important when remodeling a bathroom and updating it to a more modern concept. Unlike the older traditional styles, the freestanding styles transform bathrooms into extravagant installations and increase the property values. The tub installations are also easier to clean, and homeowners can walk all the way around them with ease. Mold and mildew are no longer a concern for the property owners. Homeowners often choose the installations to get the most out of their renovation investments.
