Classic clawfoot or contemporary freestanding stone, bathtubs can create a stunning feature in your bathroom as well as a haven of relaxation.
There are several styles of bathtubs. Freestanding, built in and hob mounted are the most popular.
Placement and space available may dictate where and what type of bathtub options are available. If you have the space available, a freestanding bath would look fantastic however if you’re tight on space, a corner bathtub may be more suitable.
Bathtubs come in a variety of options to suit every budget. These are mostly dependant on the materials used. In order of budget to blow-the-budget, bathtubs come in enamel, fibreglass, acrylic, cast iron, soap stone and copper. Spa and whirpool bathtubs are also popular with luxury bathrooms.
A good budget idea to tie in with your bathroom’s theme is to use an acrylic bath and build it into a hob using the same tiles as the rest of the bathroom.
Don’t forget the tapware to complete the bathtub look. Sleek, chrome tapware will suit a contemporary looking bathtub, while brass fittings would perfectly finish a claw foot bathtub in a Queenslander or Victorian style home.
Bathrooms are one of the most commonly renovated rooms and the right style of bathtub can add stylish impact on the space. If you are considering renovating a bathroom or are building a new home, the team at Windemere Interiors can help you find the perfect bathtub.
