Including A Freestanding Bathtub In Your Master Bathroom Remodel

When designing your master bathroom, you will have a great deal of choices.

One of those choices might be which type of bathtub to install.

As we design our master bathroom projects, our clients are usually undecided by having a bathtub or removing the bathtub and having a larger shower. Bathtubs come in many types, alcove, drop-in, and freestanding to name a few.

Freestanding bathtubs are eye catching, elegant, and great to place to relax and unwind at the end of a long day. If you are looking for a freestanding bathtub, consider Victoria & Albert freestanding bathtubs.

Victoria & Albert offer many styles from, traditional to modern that will compliment any bathroom.

When it comes to the cost, a Victoria & Albert bathtub, can range from $4,500.00-$8,000.00 for the bathtub only. However, you will get what you pay for.

Along with original shape and style, superior quality, and comfort. The material the bathtub is made of crushed limestone to retain heat. Nothing is worse than having a nice bath that gets cold too soon!

Other cost related factors to keep in mind, for a freestanding bathtub, is a bathtub filler, and labor cost to install this fixture.

Tub fillers also come in many different styles, and vary in cost. Once again, you get what you pay for. Starting point for a tub filler is around $500.00.

Labor to install a freestanding bathtub is more than installing an alcove bathtub. The placement of the bathtub needs to be decided, then the rough-in complete prior to the flooring being installed.

After the rough-in is complete, and yes, the bathtub needs to be on site for the rough-in. Find a safe place to store the bathtub until the final plumbing install.
