Would you like to find out more about the history of free-standing bathtubs?

Free-standing bathtubs were already used in the Middle Ages. At the time, these washtubs were still made out of wood. During the industrialization and the rise of cities, this type of tub became redundant and was replaced by wash bowls or washbasins. The main reason was that there was simply not enough space for them in homes and bathrooms. Due to the decreasing size of bathrooms, the larger bathtubs we have today were only fix-installed much later, and were made out of plastic or acrylic. At the time, only people with plenty of space and money could afford free-standing bathtubs, and thus they were considered a luxury object!

Nowadays, free-standing bathtubs are available in a wide range of variations and with many luxurious extras. Available wellness features include massage jets, heating functions and integrated lighting, to mention but a few.
