3- Baths

 

The bath is the centrepiece of your bathroom, so it is important that it sets the tone and style as well as offering a practical solution. 
The options fo bath that you can choose are material, type and style. 

A- Material:

The bath material can be either acrylic or steel.  Acrylic is the most popular bath material throughout the UK. It is easy to transport and install thanks to its lightweight properties. It has a good heat retention and it is excellent value for money and cost-effective. When you touch, it is warmer than the steel. Since it is non-porous: it is easy to clean and remove scratches.

On the other hand, steel is also very commonly used throughout the UK, because it is stronger and more durable than acrylic.  It is resilient and almost impossible to stretch. Whilst cold to the touch it’s a great heat conductor. You shouldn’t worry of corrosion, because its chemical and UV light resistant properties prevent discolouring. As a 100% recyclable material, steel is an eco-friendly choice.

B- Type:

The type of the bath depends on both the size of your bathroom and your preferred style you are looking for. There are basically four types of bath types, which you can pick any style ranging from traditional to contemporary modern. 

First type is the ‘Single-ended bath’ that is a simple rectangular bath having taps installed at one end. This style provides a single backrest for comfort. As a popular and practical design, they come in numerous sizes for a wide variety of bathroom space. 

The second type is the ‘Double-ended Bath’ that usually has a centrally-mounted taps, enabling the both ends free for use as backrests, or providing a generous bathing space. These baths are also perfect for families who want to bathe their beloved children. 

The third type is a ‘Free-standing bath’ that is the epitome of luxury. These baths create a real statement of sophistication in your bathroom. Both traditional and contemporary free-standing baths are available on the market. 

The fourth type is the ’Shower Bath’ that is perfect for the small bathroom. It gives the option of both showering and bath at the same time.  Families can bathe their children, and still have the efficiency of showering for themselves, even in a cramped bathroom.

The bathroom accessories are the items that end/compliment the bathroom in function and aesthetic. The glass shelves, toilet roll holders, grab bars, towel rings &/or Towel rings, tumbler and holder, toilet brush and holders, storage baskets and mirrors are the accessories of finishing touches. 
Selection of the right accessories therefore is very important. The details and dimensions are vital for the functional details. The aesthetic is important whether to pick the suitable styles.
