In small bathrooms, design yourself into a corner

With today’s new compact tub designs, it is possible to get some extra bathing room with a smaller footprint than traditional larger-size bath tubs. You can choose from two styles, depending on which best fits your bathroom.

Q: What are some space-saving ideas to keep in mind when trying to install a two-person bathtub in a smaller bathroom area?

A: With today’s new compact tub designs, it is possible to get some extra bathing room with a smaller footprint than traditional larger-size bath tubs. You can choose from two styles, depending on which best fits your bathroom.

First, you can choose a deep-wall soaking tub. This type of bathtub usually fits standard tub spaces, but it can have arm and back rests on both sides of the tub, along with a deeper wall design.

This allows the users to be in a more seated position while still enjoying a deeper soaking experience.

Second, you can go with a corner-mounted bath. The corner-style layout minimizes the footprint, but still provides some extra bathing room by utilizing the corner area.

Both of the styles can be set up with whirlpool or bubble jets for extra comfort, proving that good things can still come in small packages.
