Do you love spending time relaxing in a tub full of warm, soothing water, but have a bathroom that isn’t large enough to accommodate a large bathtub? Don’t let your small bathroom hold you back from having an exceptional bathing experience. Japanese soaking tubs are a great answer to the question of what to do with a small bathroom space. These bathtubs are a space saving solution that offers you the opportunity to soak away your stress without taking up a large area of your available bathroom real estate. Japanese soaking tubs are small bathtubs that can help maximize the available space in your bathroom, and still provide you with a relaxing, rejuvenating experience.


Why choose a Japanese tub for your bathroom? Small bathtubs offer a number of advantages to homeowners. Knowing how to choose the tub that is right for you involves knowing exactly what you need to be satisfied with your tub, and understanding the footprint of your particular bathroom, whether you are trying to choose a tub that works in your existing space, or are still in the designing phase of building or remodeling your home.

Japanese soaking tubs are slightly shorter in length than traditional Western tubs, and can be purchased or crafted in a variety of shapes, styles, and materials. Picture an elegant hand-crafted copper tub, with it’s warm, natural metal offering a unique aesthetic to your bathroom, or a sleek, stainless steel tub, with its own brand of style and elegance to enhance your bathroom’s design. There are round tubs, oval tubs, square tubs, and compact tubs that double as showers. There is also the Japanese upright tub, often used in older Japanese homes, which allows the person taking a bath to remain in very deep water.


Japanese tubs also known as ofuro tubs traditionally have seats in the the tubs, available in one or two seat versions, where the bather(s) can sit back and relax in the bath water. All these tub choices save space in your bathroom, typically using only about half the space of a traditional oblong tub. These tubs offer cost savings as well as space savings, as they usually do not require as much water as a typical Western bathtub.
