Another application is for a bath tub that is mounted below the floor as shown in the next two photos. In the first photo, the bath tub is custom made. In the second photo, the bath tub is mounted underneath the stone on the floor.

Other free standing bath tub options include a bath tub that sits on it's own tub bottom. Examples are shown in the photo above and below.
Yet another way to install a bath tub is to drop it into a stand as shown above.
In the photo above and the two photos below are free standing bath tubs surrounded by a tile apron or a decorative wood apron.
