Soaker Tub for Small Bathroom

Soaker tubs are part of the dream home and owning a small bathroom doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the aroma, sensation and relaxation of a good soaker tub.

While small bathrooms certainly make it difficult, there are special soaker tubs on the market designed for smaller bathrooms. What they lose in depth or width, they make up in both comfort and price.

To accommodate your small bathroom, the following eight small tubs are five feet long (or less) and cost less than $1,000. While the average price to install a bathtub is $2,300, these specialty-designed soaker tubs will surely cost less, even if you hire a professional.

Kohler Archer

Kohler Tubs

1. Archer Deep Soaker

Undoubtedly, one of the best brands on the market is Kohler, so it’s no surprise that a few of their models would fall on our list of soaker tubs designed for small bathrooms.

Kohler’s Archer Soaker comes with lumbar arches within the tub to fit your body’s natural figure. In addition to its beveled edges and curved base, the Archer comes with a lower wall to step over, great for kids and the elderly. To make up the height, you can purchase an extra overflow attachment to ensure no water makes its way out of the tub.

The tub measures 19” high, 32” wide and 60” long. While taller adults may not be able to fit most of their body below, many will enjoy resting away in this deep soaker.

According to Kohler, you can buy the Archer soaker for $845, but as low as $634 on Amazon.

Kohler Expanse

2. Expanse

Kohler’s Expanse is another hot Kohler tub designed for small baths across the globe. The curved basin and integral apron add a sense of elegance to your bathroom. With its 60”x30”x17” dimensions, much like the Archer above, the Expanse tub lets you stretch out and forget your daily struggles as you wash away in your gentle, yet compact tub. While it’s modern design lends itself to contemporary or modern homes, many designers have found ways to integrate these great soakers in more traditional remodels.

Kohler lists the Expanse at $913, but eFaucets lists a price of $685.

3. Soissons

The final Kohler soaker great for tiny bathrooms is its Soissons line. This cast iron tub comes in at 59”x27.5”x16.75”. The narrow footprint and clean lines make it ideal for skinny bathrooms, but it stills gives you the relaxing aroma of a soaker tub.

The polished finish, along with its cast iron material, drive the cost up to $1,240 (comes with adjustable pop-up drain), but eFaucets lists the small soaker at $931.

Villager

4. Villager

The Villager is one of Kohler’s most popular soaker tubs with all the bells and whistles that come with their larger tubs. The cast iron design, along with its 60”x30.25”x14” dimensions, allow for extra room to stretch out and soak for hours. Given its dimensions, some homeowners may not be able to install the Villager, but it’s $379 price tag on Home Depot is certainly a welcomed benefit.

American Standard

Colony Whirlpool

5. Colony Whirlpool Tub

Unlike the Kohler brands above, American Standard’s Colony Whirlpool is built from acrylic, reinforced with fiberglass. The tub sits at five feet long, but comes with six jets and even a 1.25 HP motor to deliver a relaxing massage right in your own home. While the drain is not included, the price listed on Home Depot is $759.

Standard Collection

6. Standard Collection Tub

Traditional fans rejoice, as the Standard Collection tub is the perfect 1920’s inspired bathtub ideal for small bathrooms across the country. Much like the Whirlpool line mentioned above, the Standard comes with a generous backrest, is made from acrylic with fiberglass reinforcement and an integral apron. The Standard measures 60”x32”x20” which is well aligned with many of the tubs mentioned in this article.

American Standard’s Standard Collection tub is listed as low as $866.

Evolution

7. Evolution Bathtub

The final American Standard, the Evolution, comes in at 60"x32”x 21.5”, a little deeper than the previous two tubs. The evolution comes with all the same features, including dual armrests for added comfort and is listed at $859. Please note that if you do purchase this bathtub, you will need a Max Drain that allows for three inches or more of water.

The Evolution is listed as low as $542 on competing websites.

Bootz

Bootz Industries  

8. Aloha Soaking Tub in White

Our cheapest find comes in at only $115. You will not find a cheaper, yet more comfortable and effective tub on the market. Bootz’s 60” bathtub offers a full-length soaking tub with both porcelain tile and steel below. The high gloss porcelain finish is resistant to abrasion, burns and discoloration. See all the details at Home Depot. 

Conclusion 

There are bathtubs designed for small bathrooms. Just because you have a tiny bathroom, that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a relaxing, long and luxurious soak in a tub.
