By Hawaii Renovation Posted in: BathInterior

Whether it’s a new build, remodel or update, free-standing tubs are a top trend in bathroom spaces. These showstopping centerpieces elevate the visual aesthetic of the room while adding to the overall value of the property. While in high demand, many homeowners have questions about the complexities of adding one to their home.

The good news is that new options are making it easier than ever to have a free-standing tub installed in bathrooms of various shapes and sizes. Consider the Unwind collection of free-standing baths from Sterling, for example. Designed with easy installation in mind, the collection features versatile bathtubs in free-standing or back-to-wall free-standing styles that fit any bathroom space and design aesthetic.

TRADITIONAL FREE-STANDING BATH POSITIONING

When most people think of free-standing bathtubs, they envision a bathroom with a luxurious tub as the focal point centered in the space. A free-standing placement leaves room around the entire tub and is a beautiful option for bathrooms with ample space. This stand-alone statement piece provides spa-like appeal in the bathroom.

WALL-FACING FREE-STANDING TUB PLACEMENT

A free-standing tub can be positioned along a wall as well, which is a good option for bathrooms with unique designs or moderate space restrictions. This could include an oval-shaped tub or a rectangle style that flanks more closely to the wall, helping to open up space while still providing the luxe experience of a deep-soak tub.

CORNER FREE-STANDING TUB POSITIONING

Some homeowners prefer a corner placement for a free-standing bath because of the visual appeal and space-saving qualities.

The Unwind Bath Collection has options for all three bathroom placements, and consists of a sculptural oval bath, a crisp-edged rectangle bath, and a back-to-wall bath that is ideal for smaller spaces and offers a faucet deck and an open back, which allows for easy faucet installation. All three styles come in a 59-by-30-inch model. The oval bath and back-to-wall bath also come in 67-by-32-inch models. The rectangle bath is also available in a slightly smaller 67-by-30-inch size.

EASIER INSTALLATION OPTIONS

All of the Unwind baths offer a single-piece, seamless design with a built-in integral overflow. The concealed legs can be adjusted for the ideal height for the homeowner and space. An above-floor rough-in and white toe-tap drain are included on all models.

Free-standing baths are on trend and in demand by homeowners of all ages. Providing a stylish focal point for the bathroom, they offer a luxurious way to reduce stress and soothe muscles. For additional information and inspiration visit sterlingplumbing.com.
