Natural stone bathtubs are the ideal way to make a statement in the bathroom, both in style and luxury. Like every other item in the bathroom they come in a variety of shapes, sizes and styles. Natural stone baths are believed to go back an estimated 3500 years with Ancient Egyptians said to have built Limestone bathing areas in which servants would pour water over them. From the origins of stone tubs to how they are made today to give them such an amazing structure and design. The Stone Bath, often considered the height of luxury, stone baths do tend to have a special something about them and are often admired by the majority. Stone Baths have developed significantly and are available in a large variety of designs, styles and sizes, and despite first impressions, they are particularly comfortable too! A natural stone bathtub is actually a more superior choice when compared with an acrylic tub. They can retain heat up to ten times to that of an acrylic bathtub as they have increased heat retention and are generally more durable. The thickness of the walls makes for a robust body and means they are well insulated.

They are also easier to repair than standard baths as they are made from a single mold therefore meaning that you can simply polish and smooth away any scratches or scuffs. They have an organic feel to the touch, which can give your bathroom a more authentic tone. As with many home décor a lot may depend on budget, but remember stone products are a life investment and some manufacturers even offer services in which they tidy up warn looking baths to give them a fresh new look. Whatever you are looking for in a freestanding bathtub you cant go wrong with Stone Bath, look out for Waters Baths of Ashbourne’s new Elements range of Stone products coming in the Summer.
