Bathroom

Last Updated - July 3, 2022

Elevate your master bathroom or guest suite with a modern garden tub if you've got the floor space. The wider and deeper than a standard bathtub, garden tubs will give you a spa-like bathing experience that is increasingly becoming a must-have.

In this shopping guide, we'll give an overview of these luxurious soaking tubs and highlight some of the most stylish freestanding tubs on the market today.

What Is A Garden Tub?

The term "garden tub" or "garden bathtub" came from the 18th century, when only the wealthy French could afford indoor plumbing. The French elite often placed the garden tub near a window with a view of the garden.

What exactly is a garden tub? A garden tub is a freestanding bathtub that's wider and deeper than standard bathtubs. Standard tubs typically measure around 60 inches, 30 inches wide, and 18 inches deep. A garden tub is deeper and larger than a standard tub.

The typical or standard garden tub has added space that allows you to submerge more of your body in hot water, making for a one truly luxurious soak. It often resembles a jacuzzi or hot tub, and it's the perfect tub style for someone who loves to unwind with a bubble bath after a long day at work.

What to Look For In A Garden Tub

There are a few things you'll want to keep in mind when shopping for a new garden tub:

  • Overall Dimensions— Before your bathtub shopping begins, take a few quick measurements of your current tub and the floor space surrounding it. A garden tub does take up more floor space, and many bathroom floor plans cannot accommodate a garden tub.
  • Bathtub Shape— Garden tubs come in many different shapes. Choose between them based on your personal tastes, bathroom set-up, and the dimensions of your space.
  • Materials— Bathtubs are a long-term investment, so it's worth splurging on something made from high-quality materials that are built to last.

    Materials like enameled cast iron are durable, easy to clean, and have stellar heat retention, but this material can be quite heavy.

    Acrylic is more flexible and comes in different shapes and sizes that can be designed to suit your needs. However, acrylic has great heat retention compared to stone resin or enameled cast iron. It is also less durable and can show heavier signs of wear over time.

    Stone resin is a medium between the two. It has excellent heat retention while being flexible to design and shape into a garden tub that fits your needs.

    Plastic garden tubs are lighter and less expensive than them all. However, it does not retain heat very well and is less durable.
  • Finish— You'll also need to pick a color and tub finish. Are you looking for a traditional glossy finish or a modern matte? For easy clean-up, look for products labeled as antimicrobial and stain-resistant.
  • Faucet— Garden tubs are usually sold without a faucet, so you'll need to purchase one separately. Double-check what style to look for, as some are designed for use with freestanding faucets.
  • Professional Installation— Unless you're experienced in bathroom renovation, you'll need to hire a professional to install your new tub. Factor installation, faucets, and other plumbing into your budget.
  • Features- Most garden tubs can be fitted with water jets and pressure streams to create a jacuzzi effect. Most garden tubs don't include these and will need to be purchased separately. However, some models come with the feature.
