Hi, I'm new to this forum. My husband and I are in the process of building a new home and want a freestanding bath. As we've never renevated or had any experience in building from scratch we're wondering if ypou need to have freestanding taps fgrom the floor with a freestanding bath or can the bath be up against the wall and have the taps coming out from the wall?
Thanks in advance for any help and advice!

The cheapest option is to have the bath sitting close to a wall so you can have normal spouts coming from the wall.
Freestanding taps that are floor mounted are pretty pricey.
We centre mounted our bath in the room but luckily the bath we bought had built in taps, controllers etc so didn't have to buy extras.
Some things are worth waiting for.

keep in mind with taps from the wall the bath will have to be close to the wall and therefore a nightmare to clean around!
Thats the thought I have every time I see one of those!

yeah freestanding taps def more expensive.
but bear in mind taps from the wall are sometimes very hard to reach (for kids especially) as these freestanding baths are often very wide.
If the freestanding tap is in the back corner, it is hard to clean that too.

My guess is that they caulked the top edges to prevent water dripped down those sides as they're probably harder to clean, given the positioning. If your bathtub is…
