As more of us have been looking to the bathroom for relaxation, big baths have started to take over.

Big Baths: Our Top 5 Tubs With Room for Two

With the size of the average UK bathroom being not much bigger than a king size bed, many of us have simply had to make do with tiny tubs.

However, big baths are now on the rise with many choosing to make them the focal point of both modern and traditional bathroom makeovers.

So, whether you’re looking for a big bath to indulge in or a two person bathtub to wind down in with a partner, we’ve looked at 5 of the biggest and best options available.

The Benefits of Big Baths

Indulgent Depth - Bathtimes aren’t much fun if you’re only half-submerged! If your current tub has you having to fill it to the brim for a decent soak, you could certainly benefit from a bigger, deeper bath. The feeling of being completely immersed can work wonders, aiding relaxation and soothing sore muscles.

Extremely Comfortable - Small baths are often a nightmare for taller users. Choosing to swap yours out for a larger one, however, could help you achieve next-level comfort. With the additional width and length, you’ll find it far easier to get comfy in a larger bath.

Ultra-Stylish Focal Points - The impressive stature of large baths (particularly freestanding baths) makes them the ideal choice for those looking for a focal point. If you’re completely re-doing your bathroom’s layout, we suggest choosing a particularly showy option and placing it centrally. Allow it room and let it set the tone for the whole space.

Room For Two - Couples may be able to get the most out of big baths by sharing. These imposing two person bathtubs have more than enough room for both you and a partner to relax. If the idea of sharing isn’t very appealing to you, try and contextualise it as you doing your bit for the environment. Just think of all that water you could be saving!

Our Top 5 Two Person Baths

With our list, we’ve made efforts to only pick baths that have room for two. Nobody wants that dreaded ‘tap end’.

We’ve also made sure that we stick to baths. Though they can make for excellent alternatives, hot tubs and shower cabins need not apply here!

So, without further adieu, here’s our top 5!

5. The Burlington London Round Soaking Tub - With its grandiose size and traditional styling this impeccable two person bathtub wouldn’t look out of place in a big-budget period drama! It’s constructed using high-grade 10mm thick Lucite Acrylic to ensure its durability and make it incredibly easy to keep clean. With its classic styling, this mammoth bath deserves to but put front and centre of any retro-inspired space.
