During a bathroom redesign, there is one upgrade that can completely reinvent your space: a gorgeous freestanding tub. Freestanding bath tubs command attention in a space because they break from the conventional and expected. Instead, they're a breathtaking, functional work of art that sits apart from the rest of your bathroom. They evoke romance, a vintage feel, and the luxuriousness of modern spas. At M&M Glass, we partner with Fleurco to bring the best acrylic freestanding tubs to homeowners in the Baton Rouge, New Orleans, North Shore, and Lafayette communities. Here's what you need to know to get started.
Style To Match Your Space
Freestanding bath tubs are a statement piece. Unlike traditional baths, these tubs are generally not attached to a wall or surround, and don't have an accompanying shower. You can add them to any space that's large enough in your bathroom. They take up less visual space, opening up an oddly shaped bathroom or making better use of an alcove. Whether they're placed at the end of a long bathroom, an alcove, or situated in its center, these tubs draw the eye immediately and invite relaxation at the end of the day.
We are proud to partner with Fleurco to bring these elegant freestanding tubs to Louisiana residents. Their Aria collection is made of Lucite ™ acrylic, which is a lightweight and easy-to-maintain option that can be molded into stunning shapes. You can choose from a variety of styles, sizes, and installation methods to fit your exact space.

Your bathroom, your style. Choose from the following shapes for your freestanding bath tub:
- Double-ended: With crisp architectural lines and shapes, a double-ended tub has a symmetrical look on both ends of the tub. Choose from rounded curves, a modern rectangular shape, or sloping edges.
- Single slipper: The ultimate in romantic elegance, these tubs feature one higher end that invites lounging. The higher back support is more comfortable, while plumbing can tuck into the shorter end or center.
- Double slipper: A bath made for two with double sloping sides that nestle into a deeper bathing experience. These feature ergonomically comfortable slopes on both sides of the tub.
- Corner and alcove: Your bathroom may call for a corner-style bathtub that shares the crisp lines of a freestanding tub, but allows you to add more storage. Or, alcove tubs have a unique slim design that can make the most use of your space, with more spaciousness than a traditional bath and shower installation.
These freestanding bath tubs come in a variety of sizes and depths. For example, Fleurco's VOCE petite tub is 55''x31" with a 24" height for intimate, cozy spaces. Their CRESCENT grande is 79"x31" and can easily accommodate two bathers at 44" high. For a style to match historical homes, the graceful curves and vintage pedestal style of the FORTISSIMO model is a must-see.
Freestanding tub faucets and accessories
Part of what makes freestanding bath tubs so dreamy is that they're a singular work of art in your bathroom. Most faucets are freestanding too, situated in the center of the bath or over one side.
Since these tubs come with graceful clean lines, you can truly make them your own with upgraded faucets. Choose a high profile modern faucet to complement a spa-like minimalist bathroom, or add vintage elegance with gorgeous dual handles in a rubbed bronze or copper finish. Customize with a book and wine caddy that sits over the tub to create your own private retreat.
Fleurco bathtubs come with a seamless drain cover and a modern slotted clean overflow, too. Install your bathtub easily with their RapidConnect® drain for rough-in plumbing. This saves you time and money as your plumber doesn't need to get under the tub from the floor. They can be installed in minutes even if you have limited or no access below. See full details here.

The design process
From the very beginning, our design experts help you make the best use of your space and budget when installing a freestanding tub.
To start, our team measures the space exactly to ensure you have enough clearance room around the sides of your tub. This is important if you ever need to make repairs and also makes it easier to clean. We can also suggest alternative tub styles or shapes to make the best use of your space.
While measuring your bathroom is important, too many homeowners neglect to measure the stairwells or doorways the tub must travel through. Our team makes sure we can get this beautiful work of art into your home as easily as possible. They'll also ensure you have a strong enough foundation to support the bath's full weight, especially if you're installing on the second story of your home.
We work closely with your plumber or general contractor as well, making sure they have all the information they need to safely install the tub in your bathroom.

- Shower doors, framed and frameless
- Mirrors, framed and frameless
