Freestanding Tubs with Deck Mount Faucets

Save Money with a Deck Mount Tub

Love the look of a freestanding tub but afraid it will push your renovation budget over the edge? While the price of freestanding tubs has come down in recent years, it's the hardware that can put you over the top. The price of a floor-standing tub filler can easily run upwards of $300. An easy hack to save some money? Finding a freestanding tub that can use a deck mounted tub filler. Here are some options.

Sax 5 ft. Freestanding Reversible Drain Bathtub in White by Maax  
The tub pictured in the photo above was installed in a shower - the perfect application when you're short on space but want to incorporate a freestanding tub and shower into your bathroom. A deck mounting the tub filler frees up much needed floorspace. Because this tub has a wide rim, your installer can drill holes to install the tub filler directly on the rim just like in the photo above.

Ariel AM128JDCLZ Bath Whirlpool Tub

Ariel AM128JDCLZ Bath Whirlpool Tub, Rounded Front
If you're looking for a jets and whirlpool - take a look at this model by Ariel. This jetted tub includes 14 jets and chromotherapy lighting effects as well as hardware integrated into the deck. Just make sure you have an outlet nearby as this tub does require electricity to operate its multiple features. Also, the back side has a visible access panel and is flat, not rounded - so you'll want to make sure this one backs up to a wall, and a shower installation is probably not feasible with the electrical requirements.
