If you are looking to add more depth to your bathroom, think about replacing your old bathtub. There are a few things to consider, such as the style, materials, size, and more. The amount of space you have room to fill plays a big part in what bathtub style is right for you. Sometimes, what you desire does not agree with the amount of space you have. The material of the tub can also influence the style because some materials are only made with a specific style, such as copper and natural stone. There are many types of bathtubs, including:

Freestanding

One of the most popular types of bathtubs are freestanding tubs. They can fit in almost any space and do not require connecting walls to be installed. They can work as a centerpiece in your bathroom compared to most drop-in tubs.

Oval

Oval tubs are round and symmetrical, similar to a water basin. They tend to be popular in apartments or small homes and provide a modern look that contrasts well with the sharp corners and edges of a bathroom. 

Angled

The angled bathtub is sloped slightly higher on one side, providing support for your back and neck while taking a bath. These are flexible in size and can be found even larger than the oval and normal freestanding styles.

Alcove

Alcove tubs are installed in a recess of three connecting walls with one finished side. They do not take up a large amount of space and can be combined into a shower combo, so they are often found in apartments or smaller homes. 

Undermount/Drop-In

Undermount tubs are installed underneath the surrounding deck with the rim hidden, so it blends in well with your bathroom. Drop-ins are installed by being lowered into a carved area and then sealed in so the rim is more visible. Both of these tubs are space-savers and come in many styles and materials. Many can be fitted for powered jets or combined with a shower. 

When choosing a bathtub, consider the type of experience you would like to have each time you use it. The size and shape of your bathtub will influence how comfortable it is for you. The deepness of your tub will affect how much water you can fill it with, so consider this especially if you like to be fully submerged. The length of your tub also plays a factor: if it is too short, you may not be able to fully recline and if it is too long, you may not be able to rest your feet.
