Bath vs Shower PT.1


It goes without saying that a freestanding bath creates instant impact in any bathroom, if you’re looking to embrace hotel-chic style then a freestanding tub is essential, we asked designers Siobhán Scott (who couldn’t be without her tub) and Leanne Robey (who loves a long soak in her shower) the question we get frequently asked by clients “should we pull out our bath in favour of a massive inviting shower?”. Here’s what Siobhán had to say…

When it comes to a shower over the bath, then don’t panic, there are many options to truly ensure that the style stakes remain, take a look at baths with thinner rims to ensure that you are maximising the internal usable space, so that you feel less cramped when showering inside the tub. Bath vs Shower Assets (BATH)2.jpg

Take a look at our low height baths, these are really useful for future-proofing your home, as they are much more accessible.

If I could buy only one bath, then I’d buy the traditional boat bath. Perfect for a Sunday evening soak, they are versatile too, if you want to match your bath to your blinds, or to match the prominent pattern in your new encaustic tiles, then that’s possible too, thanks to the bespoke paint colour option available on this bath. They come in multiple sizes, which also allows for that personal touch and you can also add an aluminum plinth to really take it to the next level.

Consider underwater mood lighting or even whirlpool jets to bring the spa to your home.

To create more room for bathing, consider using freestanding or wall-mounted brassware or a double-ended bath with centrally positioned taps.
