Advantages of an L shaped bath

For any bathroom, large or small, choosing between a bath and a shower, or both, is one of the biggest decisions to make. If you opt for a shower only, will you miss out on the occasional long soak in the tub? And if you opt for a bath only, will it take longer to get ready in the morning? While to choose both would mean using a lot of space, which isn’t an option in a small bathroom. But an L shaped bath could be the solution you are looking for. So, what is this, and what are the advantages of an L shaped bath? Well, here at RWM Plumbing and Gas, we are leading bathroom and heating experts. And this is our guide to why an L shaped bath should be a serious contender for your new bathroom.

What is an L shaped bath?

So, what is this type of bath? Well, as you might imagine, this bath has the shape of an L, with the tap end being wider, protruding further, than the rest of the bath. This means that you can install a shower, and a fitted shower screen at this end of the bath.

Advantages of an L shaped bath

So why would you choose this type of bath? Well, there are a number of reasons, including:

  • Benefits of both an bath and a shower- with this bath, you can enjoy a bath or a shower, without using too much floor space. So if you can fit a bath in your bathroom, you could use an L shaped bath and have the benefit of both options.
  • More room- you could achieve a similar effect by simply using a shower curtain around your bath, and a wall fitted shower over the tap end. However, the L shaped bath provides a lot more room at the shower end, so you can have a luxurious shower, instead of constantly fighting the shower curtain!
  • Stylish- an L shaped bath can suit both contemporary and traditional homes.
