What are the different styles of slipper baths?

There are a number of different slipper bath styles, including:

  • Traditional slipper baths- the most traditional of all slipper baths is the slipper bath with a roll top and gold clawed feet. This is sure to be a feature in any traditional or period bathroom and can really help your bathroom create the style and wow factor it deserves. Make sure you choose traditional style mixer taps to complete the look.
  • Double ended slipper bath- this type of slipper bath is high at each end, instead of just one, so that the overall bath design resembles a boat. These are available in both traditional and contemporary styles to suit any bathroom space or design.
  • Contemporary slipper baths- a contemporary slipper bath is one that is designed without any pronounced features or decorative details, it is simply plain. This is usually paired with contemporary or modern taps, such as waterfall taps.
  • Slipper bath materials- as well as different styles, slipper baths are also available in a range of materials, including metals like copper, and ceramic or stone designs. Whichever material you choose, make sure that this will provide the right visual finish to match with the period of your bathroom style.
