Whether you’re choosing a bathtub for a newly constructed bathroom or replacing one in an existing bathroom, your first step is to pick the appropriate installation type.

Installation

Whether you’re choosing a bathtub for a newly constructed bathroom or replacing one in an existing bathroom, your first step is to pick the appropriate installation type.

Alcove

An alcove is a recessed nook or area within a room. Fixtures designed for corner or three-wall alcove installations feature unfinished exteriors and tile flanges on two to four sides. Many of these fixtures include an integral apron to complete the design. Alcove baths are available in 5 feet, 5.5 feet and 6 feet lengths.

Corner

Corner baths are usually five-sided, with a triangular basin, and designed to accommodate two bathers at once.

Drop-in

Fixtures designed for drop-in installation have a self-rimming edge that rests on the material – such as tile or stone – that surrounds your whirlpool or bath.

Under-mount

Creating a clean, contemporary look, under-mount installation is perfect for designing a quiet, spa-like bathroom space. The deck of the bath is mounted beneath your choice of deck material, such as tile, solid surface or natural stone.

Freestanding

This installation option is ideal when the bath is the focal point of the room. Accessible from all sides, the freestanding bath highlights the beauty of the design.
