How wide is the edge that one must step over to get into the tub?

arzondzinskaJuly 5, 2013
Would tile facing outside surface add any additional depth to that edge? I'm planning to face the exterior with marble tile cut for subway application and I want to make sure that as I age, I can still step over the side. I recently traveled in Europe and noticed tubs of this basic design with a much narrower outside edge. Thanks!

Hi arzonzin. It's Perrin from Kohler. The lip from the outside edge to the corner where it begins to curve down is 6.25”. Tile can be installed underneath that lip, so it wouldn’t need to be made any wider. Hope this helps!

Hi Kohler: do you have a picture of K-878 and K-868-S? I want to see what this looks like with the enabled apron instead of the cabinets. The spec sheet on this item is not clear to me: is there a 1/4 apron on the ends of the step-in side of the tub or does the apron run along the entire edge? I don't want to put in cabinets...
