Freestanding bathtubs – As the name implies, freestanding bathtubs are not built on the floor or enclosed by sides but are simple bathtubs standing on four legs. The taps or faucets are generally mounted on the bath tub itself and even may be mounted on the wall. These bathtubs are usually made out of cast iron, porcelain, and acrylic.

Drop in Bathtubs – Drop in bathtubs are installed within the floor and impart the feel of a swimming pool. They feature simplified looks as integrated faucets are installed. The only downside of these bathtubs is that it is slightly hazardous to come out of the bathtub as one needs to take long steps.

Whirlpool Bathtubs – Whirlpool bathtubs are considered to be the peak of progressing technology, sophistication and luxury. The most significant feature of these bathtubs which set them apart from the rest is that they have water motor and jet installed, which rotates the water in the bath for relaxation and massage.  Needless to be mentioned, but these are highly expensive and are thus employed in commercial residential areas, spas and buildings.
