Is there anything more relaxing than a long soak in the tub? Whether you’re planning a full bathroom refurbishment or want to transform it one step at a time, investing in a new tub is one of the easiest ways to refresh your space. But with so many tub designs available, how do you choose a style? Before contacting a professional bathroom fitter, read on for our bath lover’s ultimate guide to tubs and find the perfect addition to your sanctuary.

Freestanding bathtub

If you’re looking for a bathtub that can make a statement in your bathroom, a freestanding bathtub might be the perfect option. As the name suggests, these tubs are not attached to any wall, so you have creative freedom when it comes to placement. Why not make it a central feature in the middle of the room?

Freestanding tubs are available in a variety of styles, from elegant stone to sleek, modern copper.

Clawfoot bathtub

To take your freestanding bathtub to the next level, why not look at clawfoot designs? These baths include four legs resembling claws and can add an impressive vintage touch to your bathroom. Explore porcelain designs or opt for a contemporary twist with cast iron.

Built-in bathtub

A popular element of modern bathroom design, built-in bathtubs are installed against the wall. They’re a great option for smaller bathrooms and are available in a range of shapes. Consider refreshing your bathroom by replacing your old tub with a classic white rectangle design or look into oval tubs. You can always speak to your bathroom fitter about the best ways to customise the bath’s side panel to suit your aesthetic.

Drop-in bathtub

Are you looking for a contemporary spa-style design? A drop-in bathtub is a great way to achieve this. Partially sunk into the bathroom floor, drop-in tubs provide a seamless connection between the bath and the floor. They’re also beneficial for those with mobility issues who may struggle to climb into a regular-height tub.

Why not look for a drop-in bathtub that will match your floor tiles to create a truly chic look?

Corner bathtub

Is your bathroom an unusual shape? If you want to arrange a bathroom refurbishment but are concerned about finding a tub to fit, a corner bathtub could be the answer. Often triangular or rectangular, these built-in tubs fit snugly against two walls and can help maximise space in a small room.

Whirlpool bathtub

Are you looking for the ultimate at-home spa effect? Give your bathroom a premium makeover with a whirlpool tub. These bathtubs use jets to create a swirling motion of water — just like a hot tub or spa pool. Offering the ideal way to relax after a long day, a whirlpool bathtub can really add the wow factor to your bathroom refurbishment.

Whirlpool tubs are available in a variety of designs, so browse around to find one that will suit your room aesthetic perfectly. You might want to look at rounded corner tubs or even go for a square design for a really luxurious impact.
