Turn you bathroom into a relaxing retreat whilst giving it a fresh new look, by investing in a new bath this month. Nothing beats getting into the bath after a long day at work, pouring in the bubble bath and enjoying some ‘me time’.
The bath is typically the main focal point of your bathroom so the decision of what style, shape, and material of you bath is an important one; it can completely change the look of your bathroom. Usually a big factor when choosing your bath is the shape and size of your bathroom. But if you’re lucky enough to have a large bathroom, you can pick from a wide range of baths, whether that is a freestanding, circular tub or a larger bath that can fit in both you and your spouse. To help you chose the right bath for your bathroom, below are four tips to help you do just that.
Tip 1: First you need to consider the functionality of the bath. What do you want from it? Do you want a Jacuzzi-like bath or more of a traditional look? Baths can be made in various materials including steel and acrylic which vary in price. Steel baths can be more expensive but have more retaining properties, so it depends what you prefer.
Tip 2: Measure your bathroom. Work out how much wall space you have available for you bath. Of course you will need to allow space around the bath for other fittings such as the sink and the toilet. You may want a really fancy corner bath but you need to be realistic. If you are worried about the size it’s always best to go for something smaller and have more floor space, rather than it looking cramped.You can find some great deals on bathroom furniture at IdealStandard-sales.co.uk
Tip 3: Keep in mind that there isn’t one bath that suits all. These days, bathrooms range hugely in size combinations. Generally, a ‘small bath’ is considered to be one that is between 1400-1500mm in length. A ‘large bath’ is one that measures as 1800m and upwards. In terms of width, a wide bath is considered to be any bath with a diameter of 800mm and above.
Tip 4: Think about the style and vibe you are trying to create in your bathroom. If practicality is what you are going for, a shower bath might be right for you. The Shower Bath is very popular in the UK as bathrooms are notoriously small and this gives you the choice of having a bath or shower. If you want a more vintage style to your bathroom, a roll top freestanding bath is perfect to help you create that look. With edges which curve at the top, a roll top bath provides a distinctive rounded effect around the edge of the tub.
