Basement bathroom tub & subfloor


Hi,

I'm renovating our basement bathroom and it's currently down to concrete floor and studs (tub, toilet all removed). The old tub was on a subfloor that covered the entire washroom. When I install the new tub, would it be better to just install it onto concrete directly, and add subfloor over remaining washroom floor (around tub), but underneath toilet.

Thanks.

I'd like to help out a fellow Canadian (nice to see it called a "washroom") but I can't think of a reason it would be better one way over the other.

If you put the tub right on the concrete but put subfloor (sleepers and plywood, I assume) in the rest of the room, you'd have less of a step up to get into the tub. Which you might want if, e.g., you're bathing kids in there or your knees are bad.

If you put the tub up on a subfloor you'd have the option to add some insulation under it, maybe help keep the water warm longer.
