Book lovers the world over know how difficult it is to find a perfect place to read.

Crowded coffee shops, bustling commutes, and even lively living rooms are all common stomping grounds for enthusiastic readers. None are ideal. A special book should be enjoyed in a tranquil environment, free from life’s stresses.

At Victorian Plumbing HQ, we believe this elusive reading space should be the bathroom. So, to celebrate Book Lovers Day 2019, we’ve put together a few quick tips to help turn a bathroom into a bookworm’s paradise.

For those who aren’t yet familiar, Book Lovers Day is celebrated on the 9th August every year. It’s an opportunity to encourage and celebrate reading, while also inspiring people to refrain from reaching for smartphones, and other distracting technologies. The unofficial holiday also champions reading for its health benefits, such as its ability to help promote sleep and ease stress.

Our favourite products to get your bathroom reading ready

A modern bath for contemporary greats

Have a taste for those sprawling modern classics? We can’t think of many better settings for your escape than this Verona Black Freestanding Modern Bath. A luxuriously deep tub in an on-trend gloss black finish, the Verona offers ample room for you to get settled in for a long read. We suggest accompanying the tub with minimalist decor to create a space free of any distractions.

A traditional bath for those classic novels

For those who find themselves delving into more traditional literature, the Duke 1795 Traditional Roll Top Bath is a stunning option with period-authentic styling. Another grand freestanding piece, the Duke sits proudly upon intricate chrome feet. Spacious yet highly stylish, consider utilising this tub in a Victorian-inspired setting. Simply add a few candles and for a truly immersive experience.

Read on in comfort with a bath pillow

If you plan on spending a fair while in the tub, you’re gonna need a pillow. Even the highest quality ceramic tubs will start to put a strain on your head if spending too long horizontal. Our pick: the Wenko Florida Bath Pillow. This functional foam pillow is covered with anti-slip material and suction cups to give you extra reassurance when reading in the bathroom. The only support you’ll need for those lengthy page-turners.
