The drain hole for this bath (not sure it's like this for all freestanding baths?) is right in the middle of the bath so when you lay down it pops up - letting the water out ! Very poor design.
Looks great, not plumbed in yet but optimistic it will look great. Victorian plumbing very competitive price and fast delivery, no complaints
Thank you, quick delivery and reasonable price. Delivery driver wasn't very helpful but I guess that wasn't your fault. Once my builder arrived we managed to get the bath into the house and up the stairs. I am very much looking forward to having a bath once fitted in the new bathroom. Would purchase from Victoria again.
Creating a contemporary bathroom which has a genuine wow factor can often be a hard thing to actually achieve, however there is one area which can totally transform the appearance of the setting, leaving you with a beautiful focal point; a modern freestanding bathtub.
There are numerous designs available to pick from so this guide will detail exactly what's out there and why specific baths should be taken into consideration if you want a the ultimate effect.
Most modern freestanding baths will be made using a tough and durable twin skinned acrylic. They come in lots of different shapes and sizes so we've outlined the differences between them, allowing you to make a more educated purchase that will really work with your particular setting.
Double ended baths: These large, luxurious freestanding baths are ideal for those wanting to make a real statement with their bathroom. There are plenty of choices available too, included curvaceous items, rectangular ones, or even more uniquely shaped versions for a designer touch. With these baths, taps are usually placed in the centre so that there is space either side for two people to sit without someone getting the dreaded 'tap end'.
Single ended baths: If you have a smaller space to work with then a single ended bath will be a great choice as they feature all the contemporary style of double ended versions without taking up as much room. These items feature a sloped end, with taps at the other, so are generally not designed for two people.
Slipper baths feature and end (or ends) which are more steeply raised than regular baths, enabling you to sink further in for a more thorough, relaxing soak. They also have the added bonus of looking completely gorgeous and will fit into most bathrooms as they are usually more compact in design than more conventional items.
Selecting the right set of taps for your modern freestanding bath will add an extra element of style into mix, finishing things off nicely. Here are some of your choices.
Freestanding taps: These taps are mounted away from the bath itself but close enough to it so that they allow water to flow into the tub without splashing everywhere in the process. They are great if you don't want to drill holes into the bath itself, or there isn't an opportunity to actually do so. They look brilliant, and will really complement a modern setting.
Wall mounted taps: Attached to the wall above the tub, these taps are great if you don't have any tap holes. They also hide any messy pipework from view to, giving the area a much more flush, tailored appearance.
Deck mounted taps: The standard way to install taps is to simply mount them to the bath itself. These items are practical and with countless style choices to pick from finding something that works with your particular bath should be a doddle.
Wastes are essential aspects of any bathtub, and when it comes to modern baths there are plenty of options to choose from. Pop up and click clack wastes are the most commonly found here as they normally feature very sleek, minimalist designs which suit contemporary fixtures a treat.
Some modern freestanding baths are actually raised off the ground. Some feature a subtle twist on the vintage styling of traditional feet, while others feature stunning wooden plinths which sit under the bath, giving off a unique, personalised vibe.
