In the next two posts, I'll show a pic of each type of tub. Would love to figure out what type most people would prefer in a master bath.

Question:
Would you prefer a free standing tub or an undermount tub with a granite or tile surround?

Choices:
Free standing
Undermount tub with surround

I had the surround style previously, but am replacing with a freestanding style because my bathroom is not large and the surround style jacuzzi was the elephant in the room.

Hi!

Both tubs have their advantage and are really style dependent. If you have the room, i would definitely go for a freestanding tub. They are elegant and can be the focal point of your bathroom. Drop-in or alcove tubs are more space efficient and can also be really stylish.
