If you are struggling to decide upon the style and shape of bath you will be fitting into your soon to be newly renovated bathroom then this post might be just what you need to help you make up your mind. Being someone who has worked many years in the building trade, I have witnessed many bathroom renovations, so I would like to think that I have a good idea of what works and what doesn’t. Also I can give good advice on the certain types & styles of baths that are best suited to all sorts of different situations that a homeowner or home designer might be challenged with, while going through the process of furnishing the property they have recently purchased/designed.
Recently I have actually been responsible for overseeing a number of bathroom renovations for medium to large sized properties, with medium to large sized bathrooms. During these renovations, I have noticed that there is certainly a trend in choosing the freestanding type bath tubs instead of the wall fitted baths which in the past had been the standard for nearly ever bathroom, certainly being the most popular style by far. Not only are people going for the stand alone, free-standing bath tubs, but they are also selecting the designs that tend to be quite a lot deeper than that of the traditional, wall fitted baths of my generation. This deeper design of tub offers a more relaxing experience for the bathers, as they can fully immerse themselves into a warm bubble bath, without the worry of any limbs getting a little cold due to the person being a bit tall and not being able to totally, comfortably remain all underwater when bathing in the baths of the past, at a depth of what many of us would be used to.
I have to say that these Free-Standing or Claw-Foot Bath Tubs do sometimes look fantastic and they provide more flexibility with how a bathroom is designed, also it makes the process of keeping the bathroom clean a bit more practical. If you have a sizeable enough bathrooms and a big enough budget though, then I would recommend looking around for the right style of Drop-In Bath design to fit in with the rest of the bathroom décor and furniture. In my opinion, the Drop-In Bath Tub Designs really give off a sense of luxury and class and for me, they would be the Bath of choice if I were to be renovating my own bathroom.
