Compact bathtubs are small enough to fit in small spaces and restrooms, especially when space is limited in an apartment. The smaller bathtub fits in both a large and small bathroom and is often similar to the size of a shower stall.
Compact tubs also use less water to fill due to their smaller size, which saves energy and overall water use in the home, which ultimately saves costs on city or well water. Many compact tubs feature built-in benches or doors to allow for easy accessibility. Installing a compact bathtub could provide room for other features in a bathroom, such as a larger shower stall, handrail, bigger sink and a separate area for a toilet with a door.
