A garden tub is a freestanding soaking bathtub that's much larger and deeper than a normal tub. Garden tubs are designed to be luxurious additions to bathrooms that have separate tubs and showers.
The main differences between standard bathtubs and garden tubs are size and shower functionality. Garden tubs are much larger than the standard bathtub, often resembling an oval jacuzzi or hot tub rather than a regular bath.
Garden tubs are also always freestanding tubs, meaning there's never a shower-head attachment and the tub is only intended for soaking. Bathrooms that have garden tubs almost always have a separate shower.
If you love luxurious soaks in the bath, then having a garden tub is one of the best ways to transform your bathroom into a spa-like experience. Garden tubs are great to soak and unwind after a long day. And while the extra tub space is great, garden tubs take much more hot water to fill and cover your whole body.
If you're the kind of person who needs to melt away stress in a bath after a long day, having a garden tub might just be your perfect stress antidote. Just make sure your hot water heater is big enough to fill up the tub!
