When it comes to bathroom fixtures, the bath is one of the most important, and most popular additions. But choosing a bathtub that suits your style, as well as your practical requirements can be a challenge. But it doesn’t have to be. Here at RWM Plumbing and Gas, we are professional bathroom design experts. So we know all there is to know about different types of bathtub. As a result, we have produced this guide to choosing the right bath, so that you can make the right choice, first time.
Choosing the right bath
So, what are the different types of bath, and why is difficult to choose one? Well, there are many different options, including:
- Standard bath- this sits in the corner of the bathroom and is rectangular in shape, taking up almost one whole wall. This is great fro traditional bathrooms, but it might take up too much room in a small bathroom.
- Freestanding baths – roll topped, slipper baths, or baths with gold claws, freestanding baths cover a range of design styles and choices. Roll topped, gold claw baths are associated with style, elegance and class, while slipper baths are a bit more practical. These use sides that are raised higher on one end to make it easier to get into and out of the bath. Freestanding bathtubs can be perfect for a range of bathrooms, from the most traditional, to the most contemporary.
- Corner bath- a corner bath is specifically designed in an almost wedge shape. It fits into the corner of the bathroom, but unlike a standard bath, it is designed to only take up a small amount of corner space, instead of one whole wall. This makes it perfect for smaller bathrooms, or bathrooms that want to use both a shower and a bath.
- Walk in baths- for people with mobility issues, walk in baths can be a safe and effective option.
