Who doesn't enjoy a lovely relaxing soak in the bath at the end of a stressful day – whether work or children-related? For most of us our bath is a crucial part of our relaxation routine and for that reason alone choosing a bath should involve lots of prior research and planning.
Fortunately today there really are a huge selection of bath styles, shapes, materials and colours to choose from. These include acrylic baths, steel baths, whirlpool and corner baths, free standing and roll top and even double ended baths for twice as much comfort.
Here’s a quick summary of the types of baths available at Bella Bathrooms today:
The most commonly found bath in British bathrooms, the acrylic bath is light in terms of weight, usually white and found in different lengths and designs. Great for retaining heat.
Looking for a bath which is guaranteed to last a lifetime? Then you’ll be after a steel bath. Our Kaldewei baths provide plenty of room and come in the popular 1500 size with bolt on cradle and adjustable lets. Anti-slip bases and hand grips are also available to order.
A bit pushed for space in your bathroom? Then keep what limited floor space you have by purchasing a combined bath and shower in what we now term a ‘shower bath.’ Originally referred to as a P-shape shower bath this clever piece of bathroom equipment comes in a variety of styles today including the very contemporary L-shape. Showers come with a glass screen and bath panel.
For years now Hydrotherapy has been hailed as having substantial health benefits and with a whirlpool path you’ll be able to find them out – as well as benefit from them - yourself. The benefits from a whirlpool bath include improved circulation, reduced heart rate and muscle tension as well as relief from general all round stress relief. Most of the baths we sell here at Bella Bathrooms can be fitted with whirlpool capacity – just tell us what you’d like.
Still unusual enough these days to be a bit quirky as well as luxurious, the corner bath is a perfect space saving and design solution for small bathrooms. These are available in both standard and offset lengths.
Roll top baths
An increasingly modern trend for those who have a large enough bathroom to accommodate one, the roll top bath is luxury in bath form. These rather traditional looking baths are good looking enough to become the focal point of any bathroom. Today they’re produced in other materials such as stone resin and acrylic in addition to the original cast iron. It’s a good idea, if your roll top bath is to be in the centre of a room or in front of a window, to purchase the exposed bath waste kit to hide ugly pipe work.
Double ended baths
Another increasingly popular item, the double ended bath offers plenty of lolling opportunity for one and a pleasant bathing experience for two. Two of the big bathroom designers in this field – Aquadart and Moods – have come up with a range and size of double ended baths without the designer price tags to match.
