For a showstopping bathroom that ticks all the boxes, a freestanding bath can certainly add a touch of glitz and glamour to proceedings.

You may think your bathroom layout is too small for a freestanding bath, however, you'll discover a wide variety of designs that can fit into a compact space.

Narrowing down your options

With such a large choice of designs, you may even struggle to choose between them all.  A handy hint would be to choose what style bathroom you would like and that way you can knock a few options off your list.  The obvious place to start is to choose whether you want a contemporary, traditional or modern style bathroom.  From there you can narrow your selection of baths down. 

Here are some other things to think about when choosing your freestanding bath:

  • Do you want a one piece bath or one that has feet?
  • Do you want a square or curved design?
  • Would you prefer a slipper bath?
  • What kind of tap(s) do you want?
  • Will it need to sit against a wall?
