Whether you’re building your dream home or working on a remodel, a new bathtub can go a long way in turning your bathroom into a lavish escape. A drop in
tub is an excellent mid-range choice for your bathroom because they are typically a bigger and more luxurious option than analcove tub, but without the more significant price tag of a freestanding bath. In addition the drop in tub has the same versatility of a
freestanding bath, in that it can be placed anywhere in a bathroom, even away from the walls or at an angle depending on your preference.
Drop in tubs are a type of bathtub that have a finished rim and are designed to be dropped in to a supporting enclosure, or surround, rather than stand on
their own or be installed directly on the floor of the bathroom. When it first arrives, the outside of a drop in tub will look largely unfinished because
it is meant to be concealed inside of a surround. The surround itself is usually framed out with room to accommodate standard plumbing as well as
additional components, such as a motor for a Jacuzzi tub. All of this is hidden when the installation is complete, and the enclosure is frequently tiled
over for a waterproof finish that coordinates with the rest of the bathroom.
Because the drop in style already requires a custom enclosure, this type of tub easily allows for a variety of tub shapes without additional cost or labor.
