Bathtubs can be either a necessity or not depending on your needs. But we can’t deny that they can definitely elevate an entire bathrooms look and value not to mention comfort especially for those who like taking long warm baths after a long day at work. However, we also have to recognize the disadvantages that freestanding bathtubs may bring. To help you decide whether you should go for it or not, here are the pros and cons that you should consider.


Luxury Appeal
If you want your bathroom to look like hotel bathroom, putting a freestanding bathtub can definitely achieve it. That’s because freestanding tubs are often associated with spacious and luxurious baths.

Available In Various Styles
Freestanding bathtubs are great focal point for a bathroom because you can definitely find different styles and design of it from classic to unique shaped one. Because they’re not limited by the constraints of walls along the sides, so you can totally go for whatever shape you like. TOTO’s wide range of bathtubs is specially designed to maximize the little time you have for yourself.

Easy To Install
Freestanding bathtubs basically just have to be placed on the space allocated for it in your bathroom and it’s done.


Since freestanding tubs are available in various styles which gives you a lot of flexibility in choosing one you really like aesthetically-wise, its design intricacies can cost more though. So you’ll have to spend more compared to built-in tubs.

Larger Space Requirements
In contrast to a built-in tub, a freestanding tub usually requires open space on all four sides. (Otherwise, what’s the point?) Thus it takes up more space in a room that typically has precious little square footage. This can be a problem is you have small bathroom space.

Less Efficiency
Unlike built-in tubs where you can store toiletries and other bathroom essentials on the edges, freestanding ones doesn’t allow for that. So you may have to use a wheeled bathroom trolley to house your essentials which will make it easy for you to move it around the tub too for easy access.

Freestanding tubs are usually heavier than built-ins, which means they can require the expense and effort of reinforcing floors.
