If you want an honest "wow" reaction in your bathroom, consider freestanding tub options. These tubs are becoming the centerpieces of today's spa-like baths. It is replacing the popular jacuzzi and garden tub that have been so popular in recent years. Freestanding tubs are bathtubs that are not attached to a wall. They can be placed anywhere that plumbing lines can be installed. There is no exterior deck or surround. These tubs are favored by those who want a true focal point in their bathroom, a beautiful fixture that functions as a piece of furniture, and a modern look.
