Without any doubt, free-standing baths are the epitome of designing any luxury bathroom. As far as aesthetics go, nothing comes close to the visual impact that they create.
They will certainly add the ‘wow factor to your bathroom, and they also allow you to get more creative with your tiles. Whether you want to match your floor and wall tiles to create a uniform and seamless-looking space, or whether you want to create a feature wall as the backdrop, either option will look all the more impressive when assisted by a free-standing bath.
Many people think that free-standing baths serve aesthetic purposes more than practical ones. However, this isn’t entirely true.
And it’s deeper than a lot of regular tubs, so it’s more conducive to soaking if that’s your thing. It’s also much easier to clean around than previous tubs we had that had a tile surround and were up against a wall or two. As far as safety, it’s really easy to grasp the side if you need to as you’re getting in since it’s about the right height, and is close to you as you’re stepping over.
It is also incredibly easy to install a freestanding bath in any bathroom. This is because they do not require any additional framework or support, nor do they require additional tiling or grouting. You can place a free-standing bath and a free-standing mixer tap anywhere in your bathroom, and you’re done – that’s how easy the installation will be for you. You will certainly save on installation costs and time by choosing a freestanding bath.
Free-standing baths are also incredibly easy to clean and maintain. Because they are not framed and tiled into a wall like standard baths, you avoid having to clean and maintain the surrounding elements such as glass, tiles, and grout. You’ll discover that it is very easy to keep free-standing baths looking sparkling clean at all times!
Another big advantage of free-standing baths is that they are also very easy to replace. Because there is no dismantling or reframing when replacing a freestanding bath, you won’t have to make any structural changes to your bathroom. So, in case you ever need to update your freestanding bath or replace it, you’ll find it to be a very simple affair.
