What are the different free-standing bath options for your home?

Free-standing baths are those that stand alone instead of against a wall. These can be flat to the floor, or have feet on each corner. Generally, this type of bath is associated with luxury and elegance, and these look great in traditional as well as contemporary bathroom spaces. Free standing baths are available in a variety of shapes and sizes as well as designs. These often bring different practical advantages too, so choosing the option that would best suit your home and bathroom is important. So what are these different options? Well, they include:

  • The slipper bath- This is a type of free-standing bath that is raised at one end, so that it looks like a slipper shoe. This means that you can rest your back comfortably against the edge of the bath, and it is easier to get into and out of the bath. This type of bath is usually single ended, with the taps positioned on the lower end.
  • The boat bath- a boat bath is a type of free-standing bath that is curved, with both ends mirroring one another to resemble a rowing boat. The taps are in the centre of this bath, so it is double ended.
  • Roll- top bath- a roll top bath has rolled edges which makes them more comfortable. They are also usually slightly deeper than other types of bath. These can be double ended or single ended. And some may even have decorative feet, like gold claws. These baths are seen as incredibly luxurious.
