Choosing a freestanding bath can often seem like a step into the unknown, an unnerving choice, with a lot of the homes of today space is quite often at a premium. Whilst a lot of freestanding baths on the market today will use a lot of space within a bathroom, there are significant amounts of options that are designed for smaller bathroom spaces.

Freestanding baths are exceptionally adaptable in lending themselves to the particular design aesthetic of the bathroom they’re placed in. A traditional bathroom design, roll top baths look stunning when placed in the centre of a room. If you’re attempting a minimalist and contemporary designed bathroom, pick a freestanding bath with sleek curves and a pure white finish. The key to making a freestanding bath work in a contemporary themed bathroom space is to choose the right co-ordinating bath taps.

Freestanding bath taps provide both style and functionality to the everyday bathroom as they continue to prove to be an essential addition. An increasing amount of homeowners are opting to invest in freestanding baths for both modern and traditional bathrooms, as they provide the user with a truly luxurious and relaxing bathroom experience. Deck mounted bath taps are a great choice if there is enough room on the edges of your freestanding bath for tap holes to be drilled and deck taps to be fitted. They’re the most common type of bath tap on the market today and will always be seen attached to the baths edge in standard straight and double ended baths.

If you have a freestanding bath that sits comfortably next to an adjacent wall then wall mounted bath taps might just be the choice for you. The benefit of having wall mounted bath taps is that almost all fittings and pipework are hidden neatly in the wall, allowing you to have a fully concealed bath mixer tap set or bath filler spout. Although potentially a costly choice, freestanding bath taps look utterly stunning when paired with a freestanding or roll top bath. Freestanding bath taps are usually mounted firmly to the floor, concealing pipework and other fittings, and raised by sleek shrouds to the height of the bath they are a real show stopping bathroom accessory.
