Free-standing tub vs. drop in tub

11 years ago

I am doing extensive remodelling due to a fire. I have several bathrooms that need to be redone but right now am stuck on the master bathroom. I hired a decorator because I am very overwhelmed with all the many choices and decisions that need to be made. The decorator is recommending a free standing tub, I previously had a tub with tile surround and I was happy with it (had place for soaps and shampoo). My question is, besides aesthetics, are there any advantages to free standing tub? For those of you with free standing what do you like about it? And are free standing tubs available with whirlpool?

Thanks for any input.
