As the cost of real estate is soaring high in recent times, it is quite obvious that one will choose to spend less money in buying that extra space of the bathroom so as to accommodate a bathtub. This leads to an unfulfilled wish of having a bathtub in the bathroom. But now, you can fulfill your wish of having a bathtub in the bathroom, as manufacturers have started to customize bathtub sizes keeping in mind the need of customers. Small bathroom spaces call for small bathtubs. Accommodating a large bathtub in your bathroom may cause the bathroom to look cluttered. Hence, it is important to choose a bathtub of the right size to give that spacious look to the bathroom.

There are several companies manufacturing small bathtubs for small bathrooms. The standard bathtub roughly measures around 30 inches in width, 60 inches in length and 20 inches in depth. Few can measure around 40 inches in length. There are quite a good number of choices in small bathtubs. You can choose from the variety available in the market. Here are a few ideas that you can use to incorporate a bathtub in your bathroom.
Circular or Round Bathtub

This bathtub style is very useful for elderly people as well as for people with mobility issues.
