When the time comes to update our bathroom, there’s a world of new features revealed to us. From the whirlpool bath to the walk-in shower, installing a modern bathroom can be a process which brings plenty of positive changes with it.

One of the most exciting and enjoyable additions to a bathroom is the bath tub itself. This is the rock upon which a dream bathroom is formed. Here, we take a look at the benefits of a good bath; giving several reasons why investing in a quality design will do wonders for the overall success of your bathroom.

Relax and take it easy

Many of us today use our bathrooms as a space based primarily on utility. We'll take our morning shower, clean our teeth and move on. A bathroom on which you've spent time can be as enjoyable a space as your living room or bedroom. On those long days when you arrive home from work and need nothing more than a long period of relaxation, it’s to your bathroom that you should turn.

Our P Shaped Shower Baths give you the luxury of extra showering space

There are few things more relaxing than stepping into a deep and warm bath with a glass of wine and a good book. That is, of course, if your bath tub is up to the job. A large, traditional tub or even one with a whirlpool feature can be particularly effective when it comes to getting stress out of your system.

Save space with a shower bath

Sometimes when people think of a good bath, they don't feel confident about the space available to them. If having a large and comfortable bath tub is something you feel your bathroom would benefit from, it's quite possible to make space for it by combining your bath with your shower.

Dependent on whether you take a bath or a shower more often, you can choose to configure your bath tub accordingly. This way you needn't compromise on your comfort while washing or relaxing in the bath or shower.

Care to share?

A large bath tub isn't only a great way to relax on your own, it's also a great way to share a bath with a partner. This can be a particularly great way to relax – especially for those who relish the chance to relax in the tub but who don't like to spend too long on their own.

Aesthetics

No matter how often you use your bath tub, it's a matter of fact that the overall look and feel of our bathroom is important to us. Choosing a great bath tub when the time comes to renovate is key to changing the aesthetic of our bathroom. Freestanding, roll top baths are particularly on trend at the moment, even for contemporary bathroom designs.
