Where should I place faucet on my tub?

nelsons2012January 27, 2013
Here is my master bath layout. The tub is soaking depth. Should I place faucet under window, I can reach it but not as convenient as placing on the other end away from window. I think I'd likely sit with my back to window so I could use the ledge for glass of wine, etc! Thoughts on which end faucet should be placed? Dimensions are hard to see. Shower is 77 long and 36 wide. Tub is 60 long, 36 wide. Thanks!

I think placing it on the end opposite the window would be best. Looks like it would be easier to reach as well as being out of your way for soaking with wine! :)

It looks like a good layout for an oval Jacuzzi set on an angle!

Soaking tub with a separate floor mount faucet? Faucet then could be set at the corner nearest the approach to the tub. Depends on the tub and the look yo are after. Retro claw foot, Japanese soaker (Oturo), Jacuzzi spa...Tell us what you are thnking and we can help a bit mor!

Just did a long install where we considered the view out the window as part of the use of the tub, Did an undermount with a slab finish and the slab is for the glass of wine...faucet under the window, but accessible from the side.

I would do opposite the window, as well. You have that great space next to the window that would be great for candles, wine, etc. You wouldn't want the faucet in the way.

Hi...deliberately chose no corner tub as I think they look a little outdated. Made the priority the bigger shower. Tub is Kohler Underscore drop in. The decking will be as is on the blueprint, just trying to figure out which end will work better for faucet. Not a lot of other options with this size bath....free-standing tub would not fit well, and Shower was the big priority for us! Thanks for advice on faucets!

If you live in a colder area plumbing on an outside wall could cause the pipes to freeze. If your faucet is good looking why not show it off and make it easier to reach by putting it closer to the front of the tub? You don't want to have to climb over it to get in...could be painful!...but having it easier to reach would be nice!

I guess I am just obsessing over this....have never built or remodeled a bath before! Knowing that I can't change the layout at this point, and the shower was main priority, I guess I will put the faucet at the front and forgo looking out the window!

As long as the faucet doesn't get in the way of accessing the tub it would be a personal choice.

Don't rule out a rim-top oval tub set on a tile deck! Additionally, if the tub has a pump you should provide an access panel behind the toilet stall door. Good luck with the project!
