Where to put the tub spout on Jacuzzi Mio?

threeapplesFebruary 19, 2013

Putting it front and center might make it hard to get in and out of, and my builder suggests that putting it on the short end might not be good since the sides of the tub slope down at an angle toward the floor of the tub. Putting it at a corner has also been brought up. Which is best? Also, we don't have a faucet for it yet and are open to anything that looks vintage or antique or goes with Kohler Bancroft.

Hi threeapples--You're getting so close to finishing, I bet you can't wait!! On the topic of the tub and faucet placement, yes it's true that putting the faucet centered on the long side will make it difficult to get in and out of the tub. As you're going to be in this house for a good long time, and maneuverability decreases as we age I would definitely recommend placing it elsewhere. If you place it centered on the short end, it will be difficult to have 2 people in the bath at once as one would likely be hitting the back of their head on the spout (I know I'd be planning for 2 people in there at one time with a gorgeous tub like that!) Placing it on the angle is your best bet IMO--out of the way for entry and exit, allows 2 person bathing and when placed on the near side, allows easy access to the controls from outside the tub for easier filling. Here's a pic of ours--we opted for the angle position for the same reasons as listed above:

Hope this helps!
