5 Types of Bathtubs

5 Types of Bathtubs

Which type of bathtub would you love for your bathroom? Kenwood Kitchens can help you relax with the right one.

Face it: you deserve a break. You deserve to relax and enjoy a quiet, soothing hour to yourself. What better way to truly unwind than through taking a bath in a newly-remodeled bathroom? Many continue to work on home improvement projects in Maryland, and any season is a good season to embark on a bathroom renovation project. However, you might have some leeway in choosing what kind of tub to insert next. Here are your most common types of bathtubs.


The first type of bathtub is the drop-in model. It has no finished sides, but drops into a surrounding structure. Because of that, you would need to put in more work to construct the base. This type is less common in the United States, but works just as well as the next model.


An alcove tub is often combined with a shower. This type of bathtub fits into a three-walled space and has one finished side. It is fairly typical in American homes and makes a practical solution for families with young children.

Corner Bathtub

A corner bathtub gives a stronger impression of luxury. It is in this model especially that one can imagine taking spa baths featuring therapeutic air or water jets. They may be triangle or fan-shaped versions, and usually can fit two people. Not all models are able to accommodate a showerhead.


Even more luxurious and spa-like is the freestanding tub. If you have always dreamed of a claw foot tub, there’s no reason to forego it, space and cost permitting. Besides the claw foot style, there are also flat-bottom and pedestal styles. Freestanding tubs are often the focal point of the room and can stand anywhere you need it to. Faucets can be installed through the floor or an adjacent wall.


For those with special needs, luxury need not go out the door. Walk-in tubs make taking a bath accessible and can contain the same therapeutic features of other tubs, such as jets and whirlpools. Many walk-in tubs are alcove tubs. For more information on what options might work best for you, contact Kenwood Kitchens!
