Baths – Types & Styles

There is nothing quite like the feeling of sinking into a hot bubbly bath after a long hard day. Indeed, it is a quite heavenly experience to lie back and let the water envelope, soothe and caress your body, whilst bubbles gently tickle your skin and allow your senses to slowly reawaken. The bath is the perfect place to relax, unwind and indulge in precious ‘you’ time. However, if your tub is tiny or your bottom is simply too broad for it or if you just cannot help wondering how wondrous a whirly whirlpool bath would feel, then perhaps it is time to upgrade to a new, better bath.

The bath market is quite simply flooded (excuse the pun!) with different types of baths. Each bath has its own features and benefits. From free standing to cast iron, shower baths to whirlpool, let us introduce you to baths from manufacturers such as Ideal Standard, Armitage Shanks, Villeroy & Boch and Jacuzzi.

Ideal Standard baths truly live up to their name. Offering an extensive range of traditional and modern baths, there is sure to be something for everyone. Take, for example, Ideal Standard’s spacious LINDA bath, which features in their stylish luxury range. This stunning innovative bath has taps placed in the middle of one side – a fantastic design feature that ensures no squabbling over who gets which end of the bath! Ideal Standard also offers an aptly named ‘space solutions range’, which offers the perfect shower/bath for those who still require a bath but are limited by available space.

A company synonymous with all things bath and bathroom suite like Armitage Shanks offer a fabulous range of high specification baths. Pick and mix from their range of baths and suites and you can create the perfect bathing space for your bathroom. Armitage Shanks use the latest in design technology to bring you the highest quality baths that are made from acrylic sheet which is pleasantly warm to the touch. Most baths offered by Armitage Shanks are available in a range of shades and colours including white, Chablis or honeymoon. Indeed, some baths are available in the same style but different sizes, such as the Sandringham and Cameo baths.

Making modern living a tradition, Villeroy & Boch offer a range of amazing baths. Their bath range quite literally comes in all shapes and sizes – including rectangle shaped baths, hexagon shaped, octagon shaped, offset baths, oval baths and corner baths. They also manufacture ‘special form baths’ that include the AQUALOOP perfectly round bath, which is spacious enough for two and also features a fitted seat in the floor of the bath.

The Jacuzzi brothers designed the first hydrotherapy pump hot tub over 50 years ago. Since then their business has become renowned worldwide. The Jacuzzi Range has been expanded beyond jetted whirlpool baths, hot tubs and spas to include sanitary ware, shower enclosures, furniture, brass ware and accessories. The Jacuzzi bath range has many features and accessories as expected from such an innovative company. They offer baths that incorporate their hot tub technology, as well as fantastic new features. An example of their superior craftsmanship is demonstated perfectly by their MORPHOSIS bath. The MOPHOSIS bath quite literally cocoons you with mood lighting and soothing music.
