A bath is the perfect addition to any bathroom, whether you use it to bathe the kids in or for a long relaxing soak at the end of a hectic day, when it comes to baths there are two main choices a freestanding bath or a straight bath. Freestanding baths have their advantages and to help you make the right decision in this article we’ve outlined what you need to know.
Freestanding baths have become increasingly popular due to the sheer design statement they make in the bathroom. Freestanding baths not only create a sense of Edwardian nostalgia, they create an elegant, sophisticated feel. Freestanding baths however work best in larger bathrooms where there is plenty of space to be able to walk around the parameter of the bath tub. You can have a freestanding bath installed at floor level, or have it raised on some sort of platform to make it even more of a feature. Don’t forget that freestanding baths can be heavier than built in baths so you need to be sure that your floor can handle the weight.
