Luxury Tubs For Your SW Florida Home

Luxury Tubs For Your SW Florida Home

We understand your master retreat is your reprieve. In SW Florida, some homeowners dedicate a significant amount of square footage to their master bedroom and bath. This oasis is a reward at the end of the day, an opportunity for alone time to regroup and rejuvenate.

Choosing the right bathtub for your escape should be a fun and rewarding experience! Typically, the process begins with space considerations.

If you are renovating, are you looking to replace your current tub and keep the same “footprint”, or are you seeking something different? When building new, do you want a centerpiece or maybe a tub situated in an alcove?

Luckily, there are many options to suit your needs. Let’s look at a few.

Clawfoot Tubs

Perhaps the most elegant and timeless fixture you could choose for your master retreat, clawfoot tubs are known for their majestic design.

Their flexibility makes them even more attractive, since they can be installed parallel or perpendicular to the wall, or an extremely popular way – centered in your bath.

Authentic clawfoot tubs are made of cast iron or porcelain, however their designs have been modernized to fit the traditional home. This means they are lighter in weight, more efficient, and more versatile in style. Whether building new or renovating, clawfoot tubs are easily the centerpiece of any bathroom.

Freestanding Tub

Also called soaking tubs, a freestanding tub offers that romantic feel. This tub has no feet or platform supporting it and can also be centered in your bath or placed parallel to a wall.

A modern and sophisticated style, freestanding tubs will transform your bathroom into a vibrant and glamorous space. They come in a variety of materials, shapes, sizes, and colors, to fit your personality.

Alcove Tub

Available in a variety of styles, alcove tubs have three sides attached to the wall. They are designed to fit into a recessed three-wall area or nook, and often double as a shower.

Alcove tubs remain extremely popular and work well when looking to maximize space in your bath.

Drop in Tub

Drop-in tubs are the shell only installed with the rim visible. They’re fitted inside a framed enclosure that’s finished to match your décor, like your cabinets, vanities, and tile.

This design allows you to simply ‘drop in’ your tub, either against a wall, or in the center of the bathroom.

In bathrooms with marble or other stone, an undermount bathtub might be the right option.

Once installed, there is no lip or rim to disrupt the beautiful lines of the tile or marble, making for an elegant, spa-like appeal that is aesthetically pleasing and functional.

Corner Bathtubs

Corner baths are a highly creative way to maximize space in your bath by using the full diagonal width of the corner, leaving remaining space for handy shelving.

When you think of a corner tub, think of a long and luxurious soak (jacuzzi features optional, but recommended) where you can relax and enjoy the serenity of your master retreat.


Bathtubs offer digital controls and come with many accessories, from jets and bubbles to in-line heaters and even underwater LED lights that provide therapeutic effects of chromatherapy.
