What are the differences between baths?

Once you have decided that you would like a bath in your bathroom – the next decision is what kind of bath you will choose….

A drop in bath?
A freestanding bath?
Or a back to wall bath?
What are the differences?……………

A drop in bath is designed to be ‘dropped into’ a cavity built for the bath. These cavities are usually tiled around and give the bath a built in look – like its built into the bathroom. A drop-in bath is what you will need if you are having a shower over your bath as the bath goes from the wall and has the capacity to fit a shower screen to it. Drop in baths are also popular in bathrooms that do not have much space – as they can be pushed into a corner freeing up valuable space for other fixtures.

Freestanding baths do not touch any walls for support and are ‘freestanding’ in your bathroom – hence their name. They have seen a huge growth in popularity in the last few years and provide a luxurious and beautiful centre piece for your bathroom. Freestanding baths can be placed anywhere in your bathroom as they do not need a wall to rest against.

Back to wall baths are similar to freestanding baths – in that they are not tiled around BUT they have a flat edge (usually back, sometimes back and side), so they can be pushed back onto a wall. These have gained a lot of popularity in recent years as the main complaint about a freestanding bath was the difficulty of cleaning behind it – this back to wall version negates that issue.

These back-to-wall freestanding baths are my personal favourite – functional and fabulous looking is always a win!
