If you have a bath which you are unhappy with then maybe it is time to start afresh and replace it with a new bath design which is more suitable.
One of the main considerations is the functionality of the bath. First of all what do you want from the bath? Do you want to have jets for a spa like feel or more of a traditional claw foot bath to suit your older property. Baths can be made in various materials including steel and acrylic. Acrylic baths will be cheaper to buy as they are mass produced where as the steel baths have more heat retaining properties so some people prefer this. Acrylic baths are also more lightweight which many installers do prefer for ease of installation. Last of all consider the specifications including the width, length and depth of the bath. Consider the location of the pipe work and tap holes.
Whirlpool and airspa baths are becoming more popular due to the demands of people wanting to relax at the end of a hard days work. Whirlpool baths are fantastic for locating a certain area of the body such as shoulders, upper back and legs to relieve tension and allow for comfortable massage experience. Airspa baths offer more of a overall body massage which is more sensitive and gentle. The airspa holes will be in the bottom of the bath and let in air offering a soothing soak.
You will find that baths come in two distinctive designs both single and double ended bath designs. Single ended means that the bath taps will be situated at one end meaning that you can lie at only one side. A double ended bath has two sides which allow you to choose which side you wish to lay and is perfect for two bathers to enjoy the same bath time together.
Corner baths are ideal to use in smaller bathroom spaces. The corner installation means that it takes up less floor space but gives you a comfortable bathing space to enjoy so you still get the best of both worlds.
When buying a bath never forget the additional items that may be required such as the bath wastes, bath panels and bath taps.
