I honestly can’t think of a single person who doesn’t feel better after a warm bath. Being immersed in the caressing water soothes sore muscles, relieves stress, and rejuvenates the spirit. If you’re building a home, you can design your bathroom any way you want it. If you’re remodeling or improving an existing bathroom, however, you might be working with a small amount of space. What’s the answer? Corner bathtubs!
Corner bathtubs are specifically designed to fit in a corner. This gets them out of the way and utilizes space that might otherwise be wasted. Corner bathtubs range in size from very small tubs to large bathtubs that are roomy enough for two adults. Some have built-in seats and are adorned along the edge with raised motifs, and you can also get a corner jetted tub and corner soaking tubs.
Large corner bathtubs
Large corner bathtubs are usually about five-six feet in length. They might be square, rectangular, or circular in shape. Freestanding bathtubs are available, but the drop-in models are more popular. This type of corner bathtub is dropped into a raised platform called a deck. The deck can be designed to match or complement the rest of the bathroom décor and might be covered with quarried tile, stone, glass tile, brick, or specially sealed natural wood. Many homeowners take advantage of the deck by placing candles, plants, soaps, sponges, or washcloths on the surface.
Small corner bathtubs
Small corner bathtubs are the perfect answer for a small bathroom where space is at a premium. These small units might be built-in tubs or freestanding bathtubs. Many are deeper than traditional bathtubs, although they take up considerably less floor space. Since these are deeper, however, you can still get good corner soaking tubs.
Small corner bathtubs might be round, square, circular, or pie-wedge shaped. To see this example, see the photo below.
How much does a corner bathtub cost?
There’s a wide range of prices for corner bathtubs, depending on the size of the tub, the shape, the depth, and the material from which it’s made.
An acrylic corner bathtub can be found for just over 27,334 Rs, and this type of tub comes in a wide range of colors. Most of these tubs come with a five-year warranty.
Fiberglass corner tubs cost a little more than the acrylic models, but they’re generally more durable. Bathtubs that are a blend of acrylic and fiberglass are also available.
If you prefer a corner bathtub with whirlpool jets, massage pillow, colored lights, and stereo, expect to pay around 136,672 or more.
For a breathtakingly beautiful and unique corner bathtub, choose one made of onyx, travertine, marble, or sandstone. Many of these bathtubs are individually hand crafted from a single block of stone, so no two are exactly alike. These bathtubs cost substantially more, but they last a lifetime and are virtually maintenance free. A hand-sculpted natural stone corner bathtub is like having a functional work of art in your bathroom! See the photo below of a corner bathtub crafted of natural stone.

A corner bathtub can make excellent use of space, even in a small bathroom. It will provide years of enjoyment and will give your bathroom a modern, elegant look. You’ll love being able to soak away your physical, mental, and emotional stress in one of these beautiful tubs!
