Bathtubs | Baths

Bathtubs, also known as baths and tubs, are bathroom fixtures with the purpose of holding water for bathing. Commonly made with ceramic, porcelain enameled cast iron, cast acrylic, or fiberglass-reinforced polyester, baths can be used pragmatically for general washing or for a relaxing full-body soak at the end of a long work day. Modern bathtubs come in a range of styles and functional designs based on bathroom layouts, space requirements, and user preferences. Standard variations of bathtub forms include freestanding, alcove, undermounted, drop-in, corner, whirlpool, and walk-in.

Freestanding bathtubs are fixtures that stand independent of any wall surfaces and are therefore finished equally on all sides. Viewed as luxury fixtures because of their spa-like qualities and presence in any bathroom, freestanding bathtubs are designed to be focal points in a bathroom layout.

Alcove bathtubs, known as apron or skirt baths, are a type of bathtub design that fits into existing spaces surrounded by three walls. Because of its use in these three-walled conditions, only the front face is finished vertically as a strategy to save on material and manufacturing costs.

Drop-in bathtubs are fixtures designed to be lowered into pre-built bathroom platforms. Because no sides of the bath will be visible after being placed into the platform enclosure, drop-in bathtubs are built without any finished sides and are often cost efficient because of this.
