A freestanding tub is undergoing a popular revival, taking center stage in bathrooms both small and luxurious. A modern freestanding tub is mainly manufactured from the resoundingly well-known stone basins that are durable and strong, but at the same time really warm to the touch. Now a number of manufacturers also produce beautiful yet expensive models of tubs. But whatever may be the design, the pipe work of the freestanding tubs will always be on display. The pipes can either lie beneath the wooden floor or emerge in the middle position of the room for supplying a centrally positioned bath. But in case you have a concrete floor, then you have to be more imaginative and have to position the tub toward the corner side of the room. Moreover, the majority of the freestanding tubs are not pre-drilled for tap holes. Both pillar taps and chrome stand-pipes are combined to create the floor standing taps and by adding the chrome tap and waste, one can easily convert the tub into a beautiful and functional one.
Your choice of freestanding tub will be limited by your budget and the amount of space available in your bathroom. It is important to keep in mind that some freestanding bathtub models will require the floor to be reinforced before the tub can be installed; cast iron tubs are often freestanding, and they are also extremely heavy, so they can do damage to the floor beneath the tub and allow water to seep through cracks.
