If you have a free standing tub rather than a built-in bathtub you can really emphasize your floor tile, an aspect of the bathroom as the two can compliment each other. Also a free standing tub offers you more flexibility when it comes to your bathroom design because it does not have to be flush against the wall, you can put it at an angle and give your bathroom some depth. It seems to give the illusion of more space. It also could be great for your health! (I've been reading a lot of articles lately about the benefits of Epsom salt baths). Free standing tubs come in a plethora of designs, colors, and materials. So it would not be hard to find a tub that goes with the design style of your bathroom. They are becoming more popular in today’s society and therefore have become an affordable asset on an average bathroom remodeling budget.
This would definitely be a personal decision based on both your design aesthetic and budget but it is something to consider! It creates a classy and elegant look to it.
