The distinctive size, shape and placement of a freestanding tub can provide a dramatic focal point as you will see in the stunning examples below. Freestanding tubs are increasing in popularity and with such a wide variety of sculptural designs—from classic to minimalist forms—you are certain to find a style that suits your taste. These tubs are available in a multitude of materials from cast iron to acrylic. Unique materials include Kohler’s Lithocast™ which mimics the beauty of real stone and ENGLISHCAST® from Victoria + Albert, made from finely ground volcanic limestone and resin. For the ultimate luxury, you might consider a tub carved from a single block of natural stone. Keep in mind that several factors including weight, size and plumbing specifications will determine if a freestanding tub is right for your bathroom.
