Narrow Bathtub (~27-28' width)?

Posted by katalase (My Page) on

Has anyone come across a good quality (preferably not porcelain over steel) tub? The house we're going to remodel in a few months currently has a narrow bathtub (probably 28") that's 5' in length. The narrowest 5' tubs I've come across so far are about 30", and we probably don't have the 2" to spare..

I ordered the Porcher Ardennes bathing pool. It's cast iron and is not meant for a shower. I am putting in a universal tile flange kit so I can use it to shower. It is 27" wide. It is being discontinued so hurry if you want to order it.

Sunrise Specialty also has one that is 27.5 inches wide, but it is enameled cast iron. It is narrow, but can be used for a shower. My teenage daughters are comfortable showering in it, but my husband is not. It is quite deep though, which is why we got it. It has 14" water depth. As I recall, their prices are reasonable, but their shipping is not. So make sure you get the shipping costs before you order.

I'm reviving this thread because I, also, need a very narrow 5" tub. The space I have is almost 29" wide. I need a tub/shower combination, and I know that the Ardennes does not have a built-in flange.

I hope you see this, Donna. I have seen your bathroom thread. I love your bathroom, and I see that you used a universal tile flange with the Ardennes. Does this work well? I know that you do not use the shower much. I'm also worried about the sloping sides and very narrow bottom. Is it possible to take a shower comfortably? We will be using the shower much more than the tub.

No ideas to add, but we gave up on the tub idea and are doing a shower only.

The only other tub I have been able to find that fits this size is made by Oceania. If I ever get around to starting my bathroom remodel it is the tub I was planning on using. Very deep (17.5 inches to overflow), made of high quality acrylic, integrated tile flange, and available without jets/bells/whistles. The price I was quoted was approx $800 about a year ago.

Please keep us updated if you make a decision!

My original tub was 60x27(ish) I did a 60x30 tub by Maxx--the Maax Modest. It's an acrylic tub. It really measured at 60x29 though. My contractors had to do a tiny bit of work, but it fit.
