As well as creating a wonderful focal point, freestanding baths give a real freedom of choice. From traditional claw foot or roll top baths, to sleek modern designs, there’s an option out there to suit any style or taste. Better still there’s often much more flexibility when it comes to size, so it’s easier to find a size that suits your personal preferences, and your space. And, of course, a freestanding bath allows the creative freedom for you to place it pretty much wherever you like!
Three great reasons for considering a freestanding bath:
1. Create a unique look
Transform your bathroom from the ordinary to the extraordinary! A freestanding bath creates a fabulous focal point and helps give a feeling of ‘air and space’ to your bathroom.
With so many design choices, there’s likely to be a freestanding bath that reflects your personality, enhances the character of your home and makes your bathroom ‘stand apart’.
2. Luxury and warmth
Freestanding baths are inviting and enticing. The prospect of a lovely long soak is hard to resist especially when many luxury freestanding baths are made of materials that offer superior heat retention, allowing you to enjoy a warm bath even longer! Perfect for relaxation and rejuvenation – ease away the stress in style!!
3. An easy, stylish look to maintain and clean
We think a fabulous freestanding bath sets the tone and style of a bathroom – it says clean, stylish and clutter free and it simply feels ‘natural’ to keep it that way.
Built-in baths can be difficult to clean because they are nestled against three walls and can often have glass doors if fitted with a shower. Freestanding baths tend to be accessible on all sides. Even when placed near a wall or in a corner, there’s no enclosure or frame to interfere with cleaning. What’s more many freestanding baths are made of materials that are easy to clean, resist mould, stains, bacteria, scratching, flaking, and abrasions.
A combination of original craftsmanship and modern technology means that there is more opportunity than ever to make your bathroom, and your freestanding bath your own. Here’s a few of our favourite manufacturers:
