You can choose from a plethora of bathtub materials and styles to complement the space, so get one that satisfies you and your family today!

1. Standard Alcove Bathtubs

A standard alcove bathtub is the most common type of bathtubs available on the market. Usually, the bathtub is 60 inches long by 30 inches wide. If you have a small bathroom and it contains a narrow space bounded by three walls, you can opt for the bathtub style. Make sure that you buy one with a bathtub drain that matches the location of the faucet. In Hong Kong, even smaller spaces have created what we term ‘Hong Kong Bathtub size’.

2. Drop-In Bathtubs

As the name suggests, it is set below floor level. Your bathroom contractor can construct a deck-like structure in the bathroom for installing the bathtub. The plumbing system is covered to give a finished look to the bathroom. As only the rim of the bathtub is visible, the contractor will leave its outer surface unfinished. It reduces the cost of the bathtub, making it an affordable choice for homeowners.


3. Claw-Foot Bathtubs

An evergreen style! A claw-foot bathtub is a free-standing bathtub. It means you have the freedom of installing it anywhere you want. It’s probably the most perfect choice for a luxurious and elegant look to the bathroom. Most of the time, it is made up of cast iron. The claw-foot bathtub is an expensive option because of the presence of the porcelain enamel on its surface. But, you can choose inexpensive acrylic options that are available on the market.

4. Free-Standing Bathtubs

If you have a spacious bathroom, what about choosing a free-standing bathtub? You can put it in the centre of the bathroom or near a frameless window to make a bold statement. You can find the bathtub in a variety of shapes, sizes and material that will allow you to customise the bathroom to your needs. Remember that the pipes are exposed in a free-standing bathtub so pay attention to details and select pipes that complement the space.

5. Soaking Bathtubs

If you love a good bubble bath, you need to buy a soaking bathtub. It is bigger and wider than the standard bathtub for that complete satisfaction. As it is bigger in size, it will require a large amount of hot water, so make sure you’ve either got a gas water heater, an electric water heater with large heating capacity or try a solar water heater. For eco-friendly alternatives, you can buy a soaking bathtub with an in-line heater. It will heat the water and re-circulate it to ensure that you enjoy hot water as long as you want.



6. Whirlpool Bathtubs

If you are looking for a bathtub that doubles up as a relaxation massage experience, then you should consider buying a whirlpool bathtub. It makes use of a motor to release water forcefully through the jets and gives you a deep-tissue massage while you unwind. It is perfect for sore muscles. You can adjust the jets according to the level of pressure you require. In some bathtubs, you can even adjust the location of the jets to ensure a complete body massage.

7. Walk-In Bathtubs

You can get into a walk-in bathtub easily and safely because of the entrance door. Usually, it is ideal for older folks or someone who has difficulty getting into a standard bathtub. It has special seats and handle-bars for helping people get up safely. When you buy a walk-in bathtub, make sure that it has a quick draining facility to drain the water.

8. Outdoor Bathtubs

If you’re super lucky to have an outdoor space that you can transform into your private sanctuary, well we think our top favourite choice will have to be an outdoor bathroom for sure! Decorate with natural materials so that it makes you feel like you’re on holiday or at a beach resort.
