What Is an Inset Bath / Built In Bath?
An inset bath (sometimes called a built-in bath) is attached to its surrounds and can be a more practical bathroom option if you are working with limited space or have younger household members.
This style of bath is also ideal for a bathroom that features a shower over bath installation.

Advantages of an Inset Bath
Price – Inset baths are usually the more affordable bath option.
Cleaning – They are quite low maintenance as they have less cracks and crevices to get to.
Plumbing – Plumbing shouldn’t be a problem as an inset bath will hide the plumbing under the tub itself and be out of sight.
Disadvantages of an Inset Bath
Placement – Compared to a freestanding bath, there are less options for the placement of the bath, normally positioned on the side or corner of a bathroom.
Look – While it does come down to personal taste, there is a reason why freestanding baths are becoming more popular in modern bathrooms. A freestanding bath can be a true design statement and focal point for your next renovation.
