Small bathroom Design with shower and tub
Soaker tubs are part of the dream home and owning a small bathroom doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the aroma, sensation and relaxation of a good soaker tub.
While small bathrooms certainly make it difficult, there are special soaker tubs on the market designed for smaller bathrooms. What they lose in depth or width, they make up in both comfort and price.
To accommodate your small bathroom, the following eight small tubs are five feet long (or less) and cost less than $1, 000. While the average price to install a bathtub is $2, 300, these specialty-designed soaker tubs will surely cost less, even if you hire a professional.
1. Archer Deep Soaker
Undoubtedly, one of the best brands on the market is Kohler, so it’s no surprise that a few of their models would fall on our list of soaker tubs designed for small bathrooms.
Kohler’s Archer Soaker comes with lumbar arches within the tub to fit your body’s natural figure. In addition to its beveled edges and curved base, the Archer comes with a lower wall to step over, great for kids and the elderly. To make up for the height, you can purchase an extra overflow attachment to ensure no water makes its way out of the tub.
The tub measures 19” high, 32” wide and 60” long. While taller adults may not be able to fit most of their body below, many will enjoy resting away in this deep soaker.
Kohler’s Expanse is another hot Kohler tub designed for small baths across the globe. The curved basin and integral apron add a sense of elegance to your bathroom. With its 60”x30”x17” dimensions, much like the Archer above, the Expanse tub lets you stretch out and forget your daily struggles as you wash away in your gentle, yet compact tub. While it’s modern design lends itself to contemporary or modern homes, many designers have found ways to integrate these great soakers in more traditional remodels.
The final Kohler soaker great for tiny bathrooms is its Soissons line. This cast iron tub comes in at 59”x27.5”x16.75”. The narrow footprint and clean lines make it ideal for skinny bathrooms, but it stills gives you the relaxing aroma of a soaker tub.
The polished finish, along with its cast iron material, drive the cost up to $1, 240 (comes with adjustable pop-up drain), but eFaucets lists the small soaker at $931.
