Tips On Bath Types

We all have different tastes when it comes to the style of home décor that we like. The bathroom is no different, especially when it comes to the feature piece; the bath or bathtub. From the streamlined contemporary look to the classic and ostentatious Victorian era, there is a style of bath perfect for you.

Freestanding Baths

A freestanding bath is the ultimate bathroom feature. Bring that luxurious 5-star hotel look home with a stunning Freestanding bath. Whilst beautiful, stand alone freestanding baths are generally heavier than inset baths and will need to be carefully supported. Many freestanding baths do not have tapholes, so choosing your tapware is extremely important. Freestanding baths are extremely versatile in their design, with a myriad of styles available.

Straight, angular lines also dominate the contemporary freestanding bath if something a little edgier suits your décor.
