Small bathtubs are extremely popular for bathrooms with limited space. A standard bathtub is usually around 60 inches long x 30 inches wide x 14-16 inches high. This is the most comfortable size for the average person, but it might feel a little cramped if you’re over 6’.
Anything less than those dimensions would be considered a small bathtub. However, this does not mean that they are uncomfortable. Small bathtubs are often deeper to account for the lack of length, so you will still be up to your neck in that beautifully warm water. Read on for a list of deep bathtubs for small bathrooms.
Most of the time, people only choose small bathtubs when their bathroom is too small for a full size tub. There are some exceptions; people who live in remote areas may have a small outdoor bathtub for secluded nights with nature, and families with young children often opt for a smaller bathtub at first for safety reasons. For the most part, small bathtubs are the saving grace of tiny bathrooms.
There are numerous reasons why having a bathtub is a good idea. Baths have a number of health benefits including:
- Ease muscle pain
- Burn calories
- Relieve symptoms of illness
- Improve sleep
- Elevate mood
- Soothe skin
The only real downside to a bath is that it takes up more space. However, with these tiny tubs that is barely even an issue! Read on to see some of the best small bathtub sizes available in Australia to bring a little luxury into your bathroom.
