Things to Consider Before Purchasing a Freestanding Tub

Freestanding tubs can transform your bathroom, giving it a modern look, while becoming the focal point of the room. It’s almost like adding a piece of art to your bathroom. However, there are a few things to consider before purchasing a freestanding tub. 

Freestanding Tub


The first step to choosing a bathtub is deciding on the size. Your tub should be big enough to comfortably fit the tallest person in your home with their legs outstretched. You should also consider where the tub will sit in the bathroom. The great thing about freestanding tubs is they can be placed in any location or direction. At Vintage Tub & Bath we have freestanding tubs ranging in size from 38” – 72”.


Freestanding tubs are made in a variety of materials. Acrylic tubs are susceptible to scratches, but scratches are easily repaired by sanding and polishing. On the plus side, acrylic makes for a lighter tub than one made from cast iron. A cast iron tub is more scratch-resistant than acrylic, but once they’re scratched the damage is permanent. For a more rustic bathroom, choose a wood or copper freestanding tub. No matter which material you choose, make sure it’s one you’re capable of cleaning and maintaining.


Another element to consider is the style of tub. At Vintage Tub & Bath we have a variety of freestanding tub styles to choose from, including:
  • Classic Pedestal Tubs – Primarily made from cast iron, with a traditional roll top rim and a pedestal base, a classic style tub will add a touch of vintage charm to your bathroom.
  • Double Ended Tubs – These tubs are uniform on both sides, allowing the option to bathe facing either way.
  • Slipper Tubs – With a high-back construction on one end, slipper tubs provide a more comfortable seating position and are perfect for people who enjoy lounging in the tub.
  • Double Slipper Tubs – Both ends of double slipper tubs have a high raised back so you can recline comfortably on either end of the tub.
  • Skirted Tubs – Primarily made from cast iron, these tubs are enclosed in decorative skirts.


The final thing to consider when shopping for a freestanding tub is the type of faucet you want. There are three types of faucets to choose from – deck/rim mount, floor mount, and wall mount. To find out which faucet is best for you, read our Tub Faucet Buying Guide

Light the Right Way

4-Light Bathroom Lighting

One aspect of a house that can be overlooked sometimes is lighting, yet we use it all the time. Light helps brighten an area so we can walk confidently across the room and can even highlight a grand masterpiece in the foyer. Because lighting is so versatile, it is essential to consider all the options before selecting a light source in a room.

There are several different types of lighting, all with different results for your space. The main three are ambient lighting, task lighting, and accent lighting. Before you can choose a light for a space, you need to identify what kind of lighting you need and how you can achieve it.

Ambient lighting: Also known as general lighting, this type of light provides an overall illumination of an area. It emits a comfortable level of brightness needed to safely walk around the house. In smaller spaces, ambient light can be a source for task lighting. This type of lighting can be emitted by chandeliers, ceiling or wall-mounted fixtures or mounted outdoor lanterns.

Task lighting: This lighting assists specific tasks, such as preparing and cooking food, folding laundry, applying makeup, shaving, etc. Pendant lights are a great source of task lighting in the kitchen over an island or prep bar. In the bathroom, sconces can be used around the mirror to make for a brighter area. Table lamps can be used throughout the house to add more lighting in the living room or on an accent table in the hallway.

Accent lighting: This lighting setup adds visual interest to a particular area, normally a piece of artwork, house plant or interesting piece of furniture. Accent lighting needs to be at least three times as bright as the general lighting in the room to effectively highlight the targeted area. Depending on the area being accented, pendant lights and simple sconces can be used.

With these three types of lighting in mind, you can begin to see a brighter future for every room of your home improvement.
