Corner tubs

Posted by MrsPete (My Page) on

We're considering a corner tub: one-person sized, no jets, deep as possible, no shower -- that'll be a separate item. Definitely built into a deck so that it has a bit of a ledge for a drink or a couple candlesticks.

Anything I ought to know about corner tubs? Hints or details to avoid? It's okay to assume I know nothing about this subject . . . 'Cause that's pretty much true.

I suppose I'm asking because so few people have corner tubs, and that makes me wonder if they're tricky in some unseen way.

It depends on how much room you have. We replaced our dated corner tub with a Japanese style soaker - Neptune Bora. I was limited to 60" and this one worked perfectly. It is quite deep though and had to be framed in.

RE: Corner tubs

I can't quote the size off the top of my head, but the dimensions are perfect for a corner tub, I know my size is good.

RE: Corner tubs

If you are talking one of those angled corner tubs, they are much harder to get in and out of than a standard tub. It's better to do a "regular" tub at an angle across the corner. You will have the actual corner for a ledge but you won't have the controls in your way in getting in and out.

RE: Corner tubs

Okay, that's a good point . . . No, I'm not thinking of an angled corner tub. I am thinking of a standard tub built into a tiled deck. I had an image in my mind, but I don't think I had actually thought that through.

So that opens up pretty much any tub in the world. Not what I had been thinking.
