With all the stress and pressures of life, nothing beats slipping into a warm bath at the end of the day. A few moments to just unwind and relax. An indulgence we would all certainly love to be able to enjoy in the comfort of our own home. Especially in these uncertain times where we find ourselves spending maybe even more time at home.
You’ve seen it so many times in the movies, the scene is set. The woman walks into the bathroom to soak up after a gruelling day and there it is, in all its grandeur… the freestanding bath!
The freestanding bath has seen a huge rise in popularity over the past few years. In addition to its practical use, a freestanding bath is the ultimate luxurious bathroom fixture.
Instagram and Pinterest are swamped with images and posts of this trend, and you might be wondering if it is right for you.
We have six reasons why you should opt for a freestanding bath for your next bathroom renovation.
1. Easy to install
Thanks to the design and overall functionality of a freestanding bath, it requires minimal installation besides the general plumbing that is needed. Unlike standard baths which need to be installed against a wall, you can position a freestanding bath anywhere you like in a room.
2. Creates a luxurious space
Simply put, a freestanding bath just looks incredibly luxurious. It is a symbol of decadence and relaxation, that is not easily achieved with a built-in bath. Freestanding baths make an eye-catching and beautiful focal point for the room and allow you to create a warm and inviting space.
Freestanding baths are crafted for people who love to spend time bathing and relaxing, so comfort is a key consideration of most designs. Compared to a built-in bath, freestanding baths often have more depth to ensure you stay comfortable.
4. Defines your space
The open space around the bath makes any room look bigger and creates a dramatic central point. Whether your bathroom is filled with accessories or just a couple of key items, your eye is immediately drawn to the large tub and the space around it.
5. Increases your home value
Whenever you make any kind of home renovation it is always wise to consider what the impact on resale will be. Not only will a freestanding bath add character to your home it will also make your space unique and undoubtedly add significant value as well.
6. Spoilt for choice
There is a multitude of options when it comes to freestanding baths, which means you’ll be sure to find one in the perfect style to match your bathroom design. Whether you’re going for something contemporary, vintage or maybe even a statement piece, the choice is yours.
