How to choose the right freestanding tub for your bathroom?
Vanity Art offers a variety of freestanding tubs to choose from. So, how do you decide which one is right for your bathroom? Here are a few things to consider when making your selection.
· Size – The first thing to consider is the size of your bathroom. Make sure to measure the space where you plan to install the tub and compare it to the dimensions of the tubs you’re considering. You want to make sure the tub will fit comfortably in the space without being too cramped.
· Style – Next, take a look at the overall style of your bathroom. If you have a more traditional space, you may want to stick with a classic clawfoot tub. If your bathroom has a more modern aesthetic, then a sleek and minimalist freestanding tub might be right for you.

Tips for installing a freestanding tub
Most people choose freestanding tubs for their bathroom because they add a touch of luxury and elegance. They are also quite easy to install, although there are a few things you need to keep in mind. Follow these tips and you will be able to install your freestanding tub without any problems.
First of all, make sure that the floor where you will be installing the tub is level. If it is not, you will need to level it before proceeding. The last thing you want is for your tub to topple over because it is not level.
Next, make sure that the drain and supply lines are in place before you start installing the tub. It is much easier to do this when the tub is not in place yet. Once the lines are in place, you can start putting the tub in place.
If you are using a base for your freestanding tub, make sure that it is properly installed before proceeding. Once the base is in place, you can start putting the tub on top of it. Make sure that the tub is level before proceeding with the installation.
It is important to seal around the base of the tub so that water does not leak out when you are using it. You can use caulk or some other type of sealant to do this. Once the sealant has dried, you can proceed with installing the faucet and drain for your freestanding tub.
Troubleshooting tips for freestanding tubs
If you are having trouble installing your Vanity Art freestanding tub, here are some troubleshooting tips that may help.
First, make sure that all of the connections are secure and there are no leaks. If you see any water leaking, tighten the connections and/or replace the rubber gaskets.
Next, check to see if the tub is level. Use a level to make sure that the tub is sitting level on all four legs. If it is not, adjust the legs until it is level.
If the tub is still not stable, try adding weight to the bottom of the tub. This will help to keep it from tipping over. You can use sandbags or water jugs filled with water to add weight.
Finally, if you are still having trouble, please contact us for assistance.
