A freestanding bath is often the statement piece for a bathroom and can set the tone for the entire space. So it pays to do the research to find the best fit for you and your home, whether that be in terms of material, size or style.
Our range of freestanding baths includes styles from minimalist and contemporary to more classic designs. We choose brands that focus on elegance in form and longevity in substance.
At Lavare, our interior design specialists will take you through the best options for your bathroom and help create a dream space you can enjoy for years to come.
Small Freestanding Baths
You may have been told that it is near-impossible to fit a freestanding bath into a small bathroom, but that is not always the case.
We have freestanding baths in a variety of sizes that can fit small or narrow bathroom spaces. While inset baths are the more standard choice for smaller spaces, in many cases a freestanding tub can be installed within the same space, which can also open up the rest of the room by eliminating the need for a bath hob.
A good option is to consider a bath that sacrifices length for height and depth. These shorter, deeper tubs fit into tighter spaces, and will give your bathroom a sophisticated vibe. If you’re renovating your bathroom (or building) and love the idea of a freestanding bath, with clever design and good planning, it might just be possible.
Freestanding Corner Baths
For some bathroom renovation projects, particularly where you are not changing plumbing locations, you may find that the only position for the bath is in a corner of the room. This scenario is perfect for a freestanding corner bath which does not stand completely alone, but instead has finished sides (the open, unfinished sides and end are positioned against the wall and allow for plumbing).
There are also D-shaped baths that are similar, but have only one side up against a wall.
Both these options give the illusion of a freestanding bath from the front, but are actually installed up against the wall(s) so that space is not wasted behind the bath. There are several brands that offer this type of design, some of which are made from stone composite materials that give a fine rimmed edge.
Whatever bath style you choose for your renovation, good planning means you also need to consider your tapware at the same time and make sure the plumbing allows for it. For example, will it be mounted on the wall, floor or a combination of both?
Our extensive range of products means we can help with all your selections and help you find tapware to match the style of your new bath. and, to top it all off, we even offer design and renovation services so you can do everything from one location.
