The corners are the least used spaces in any room of the house. But when the space is small and every inch matters, we manage to put them to good use. Like when a corner kitchen sink can solve all our problems or a set of corner kitchen cabinets can add valuable storage space to the room. The same way, a corner bathtub can turn out to be a great option.
Basically any freestanding tub can be placed in the corner if that’s the desired configuration. Some models have symmetrical shapes which allows them to look natural in corners, especially if the rest of the décor follows the same line.
Placing the tub in a corner can be a smart decision for a number of reasons. For example, this configuration can help you save space in the bathroom and maybe even make room for a shower or some extra storage.
There’s more than one way in which a bathtub can fit in a corner. It all depends on the layout of the room and the position of the other fixtures and furniture pieces.
Placing the tub at an angle, in a corner can be a good option if the bathtub doesn’t fit along the wall. It can be the case with a small bathroom where the tub is the main piece. And there’s enough space space left there for a potted plant. The tricky part will be to find a plant that suit the bathroom environment.
Soaking tubs are deep but small and they fit well in corners. So if you have a tiny bathroom, consider this type of tub. It allows you to save space without giving up comfort. In fact, it can even be better than a regular tub.
Place the bathtub in the corner if the room has a great view and a corner window that wraps along the walls like this one. This seems to work out perfectly even if the bathroom is large and space isn’t an issue.
