At the start of 2021, Kohler announced a revolutionary infinity bathtub: the Kohler Infinity Stillness Freestanding Bath. 

This smart tub allows users to operate the tub by voice command, enabling you to set it to a particular temperature and filling depth. It also provides options of chromotherapy, aromatherapy, and creates an atmospheric fog that hovers over the water. All of this converges to create a full sensory experience.

As if this new infinity tub isn’t cool enough, the Stillness does not have a typical faucet. Instead, the bathtub fills from the bottom. The water then overflows the tub’s edges onto the hinoki wood base to create a soothing sound.

The Infinity Stillness Freestanding Bath with all the bells and whistles can be yours for $16,000 USD. This model includes the wood catchment surrounding the base of the bath. However, you can also get other versions of Kohler’s infinity tub that start at $8,000 USD for the gorgeous soaking tub without the sensory experience add-ons.

The walls of the Americh Contura II are substantial, heavy acrylic that are excellent for retaining heat and add to its true luxurious feel.

And if you love this tub but have smaller bathroom, it’s available in various lengths and widths. You can even keep the 40″ width of this tub but go shorter in length. So many options!


4. Best Luxury Japanese-Style Tub

Empava Japanese Air Tub

Zen vibe. Gentle body massage

PROS

  • Easy to install and operate
  • High-quality jets
  • Includes handheld showerhead, drain, faucets, knobs
  • Comes with pre-leveling feet

CONS

  • A taller person won’t have chest fully immersed in water when sitting on bench

Capacity: 40 Gallons

Installation: Freestanding

Shape: Round

Size: ‎47.2″ x 31.5″ x 30.7″

Weight: 100 pounds

Material: Fiberglass

This luxury air tub from Empava shows the potential of a high-quality air tub. It contains 48-pin hole air jets that completely surround all parts of the tub and allow for an overall body hydrotherapy session.

Due to its inspiration from traditional Japanese-style tubs, this model works especially well in smaller bathrooms, but that doesn’t mean it can’t work as a centerpiece for a larger room. 

Tub accessories come pre-drilled to help with the installation process. There is an interior bench that provides a 15.5 inch soaking depth from the seat or 21 inches from the floor.


5. Best Cast Iron Claw Foot

Kohler Iron Words Clawfoot Tub

Kohler Iron Works Clawfoot Tub

Extra wide. Antique look

PROS

  • Quiet fill
  • Excellent heat retention
  • Gorgeous aesthetic
  • Rare size – extra wide

CONS

  • Weight may add cost to transport and installation

Capacity: 64 Gallons

Installation: Freestanding

Shape: Oval

Size: 66″ x 36″ x 24.5″

Weight: 545 lbs

Material: Cast Iron

The Kohler Iron Works Clawfoot Tub is a beautiful, durable luxury bathtub that brings a vintage look into your home. 

Make no mistake though, this is not your average cast-iron clawfoot tub. It comes with many extra features that help to make bathing a more comfortable and enjoyable experience. 

Its molded lumbar supports offer extra support, the slip-resistant floor makes getting in and out of the tub extra easy, and it even comes with a reversible drain meaning installation is a much smoother process. This tub is also extra wide meaning it provides more room than most other bathtubs on the market. (And finding an extra wide cast iron clawfoot is quite rare!)

Also, cast iron is the best bathtub material for filling quietly and retaining heat.

The one drawback to cast iron tubs is the weight. Being 545 pounds means moving it around your house is no easy task and you might ask a contractor whether you’ll need additional floor supports to handle the weight. (This is especially true when placing the tub on an upper deck or second story.)


6. Best Copper Bathtub

Antique Copper Bath with Rings

Pedestal tub. Hammered copper

PROS

  • Fast shipping
  • Handmade
  • Conducts heat

CONS

  • Requires careful cleaning

Capacity:

Installation: Freestanding

Shape: Oval

Size: 72″ x 32″ x 31″

Weight: 110 lbs

Material: Hammered copper

This copper bathtub from GemLook Design manages to have an incredible aesthetic while being a comfortable high-quality tub. Unlike most manufactured tubs this one is handmade.

The tub is made almost entirely of 99.9% pure copper and you can include an overflow hole upon request. 

One of the benefits of having a tub made of copper is that, since copper is a great conductor of heat, your tub is guaranteed to stay warmer for longer.

Be aware that you’ll need to take extra care when cleaning this tub since hard chemicals and cleaners can damage the copper shell. Instead, use gentle dish soap or a damp cloth. There may also be some small variations in the size of your tub due to it being handmade.


7. Best Luxury Marble Bathtub

Tundra Grey Marble Tub

Hand-carved. Breathtaking

PROS

  • Premium stone
  • Handcrafted
  • Easy to clean
  • Durable

CONS

  • Heavy, may require extra floor supports

Capacity:

Installation: Freestanding

Shape: Oval

Size: 29.5″ x 67″ x 19.5″

Weight: 1,110 lbs

Material: Hammered copper

A marble tub in your bathroom will surely make a statement. Its incredible and carefully designed exterior serves as a vehicle to take your bathing experience to the next level. 

Marble tubs are also long-lasting and extremely durable, meaning chips are unlikely.

This tub made by BeResposible comes from premium quality stone and is handcrafted, which means getting one for yourself may take some time. 

The tub is 67 inches long, seven inches longer than a standard tub, and will allow you to stretch out your legs.

Make sure to consider the weight of the tub when ordering it. At 1,100 pounds, you’ll want to plan out how you might carry it up a flight of stairs and whether your floor will require extra support to handle its weight.
