In today’s economy, many homeowners are finding themselves in downsized home with smaller rooms that they were used to living in. One of the most frequently used rooms of any house is the bathroom and one of the most frequently heard complaints are the size of the bathroom. There are few homeowners that do not want one of the most comfortable placed in the bathroom to take up the entire space available. Small bathrooms and small budgets call for a solution, small bathtubs.
Small bathtubs are not as hard to find as they once were. There are many different styles of small bathtubs that fit into small bathroom spaces without compromising depth and soaking room. Small bathtubs are generally made deeper to compensate for the lack of length. Many people are used to stretching out full length in a five or six foot long bathtub in a generously sized bathroom. One of the most popular fixtures in upper class bathrooms of the past was a soaking tub. The soaking tub was generally deep enough to sit inside with water up to mid-chest or shoulders. Though lengthwise space has been removed, depth makes for a very comfortable reclining position.
One of the most attractive types of small bathtub is the Victorian bathtub. These small bathtubs may be found complete with claw foot stands or they provide a luxuriously deep tub that make up for their lack of size. You can fit one of these small bathtubs into the tiniest of bathrooms and will effectively create a feature piece for the room.

There are several online and home improvement resources available to locate small bathtubs that fit into many different bathroom floor plans. Both Asian and small claw foot tubs are two good options for those looking to keep floor space to a maximum in a small bathroom. Another benefit to purchasing a small bathtub is they can be easily fit into a corner space without taking up much room. This style of installation will also allow for a stand up shower in the same space that would be too small for a regular sized bathtub.
Although there are several styles of small bathtubs that can be considered for bathrooms without a lot of space, homeowners should be aware of bathtubs that will not work for their lifestyle. Walk-in tubs are small bathtubs that are generally only used for elderly and those with medical conditions who cannot utilize regular bathtubs or stand up showers. Walk-in tubs must be filled after the bather enters the tub and the bather cannot exit until the water is completely drained. Another thing to keep in mind is to measure the exact space available before consulting manufacturers or home improvement stores when looking for the perfect small bathtub for limited bathroom space.
