American bathtub (1 foot high) for a bathroom renovation

Hello,

I'm planning to renovate a bathroom, and am planning to install a low bathtub (walls are only about 1 foot high). These bathtubs are the standard size in the US and are practical as they provide a simple bathtub, but do not require a high step to get into the tub. It seems standard bathtubs in Europe, France and Switzerland normally have quite high walls. Does anyone know where I can buy this bathtub in Switzerland or France? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Greengrass

Re: American bathtub (1 foot high) for a bathroom renovation

I've been away awhile but I've never seen a bathtub with a height of 12 inches in the US. We have a Duravit 2 person bath tub that stands 575 mm tall (encastré/built-in) which is about 22 inches tall

In my experience, there are no measurable differences between Swiss & US bathtubs in terms of wall height

Check with a Schreiner that does bath remodeling. There are a lot of items and product lines available that you’ll never see in a store. If what you want is not easy accessible, it may be possible to achieve the same effect with skilled tile and floor work or stainless steel.

Re: American bathtub (1 foot high) for a bathroom renovation

There are some shower tubs which are 28 cm high https://www.schmidlin.ch/products/du...ief-28-cm.html and bath tubs which are only 40 cm deep https://www.badshop.de/badewanne/fil...3%B6he--40_cm/

But are you sure it is only 12 inches? https://www.houzz.com/discussions/25...ofile-bathtubs
