Statement Baths on a Budget
When you think about a bathroom remodel these days, the first consideration should always be the budget. Designer bathrooms these days place a great importance on a show stopping, statement bath. The move to bath-less bathrooms is ever increasing however, those which include a bath make this the focal point.
A statement bath shouldn’t and doesn’t have to cost as much as everything else within the bathroom either. So if your plumber is telling you otherwise you need to shop around. The top bathroom manufacturers have become very aware that creating uniquely shaped, interesting baths alongside smaller, compact versions of these will send sales soaring.
We’ve compiled our favourite purse friendly, ‘wow’ baths that will meet the smallest of budgets.
Our budget baths start with…
The D shape bath is a back to wall style that can give the impression of a freestanding bath, without actually being one. The double ended style bath has a gentle slope on each end which combined with the generous 800mm width makes the bath perfect for more than one person. A romantic night in or bath time with the kids will be much more enjoyable in the curved D shape tub from Trojan. It’s positioning against a wall also makes fitting a shower over the bath ideal.
The first freestanding bath on the list. The Trojan Edinburgh is a single end style bath which is big enough to be used with either deck mounted or freestanding bath taps. The contemporary bath has an angular exterior with a generously proportioned curved interior. The freestanding nature of this tub allows it to be positioned anywhere in the bathroom. Guaranteed to make any guests oooohh as they enter your bathroom. At an incredible £501 this is our lowest price free stander.
A change of direction with the Skipton. A curved, roll top bath with stunning bright chrome legs. This double skinned bath has an elegant look that really looks perfect in any period style bathroom. Positioned against a wall or in the centre of the room the Skipton is guaranteed to make a bold impact. Not only does the bath look amazing but its double skinned. This means the tub has advanced thermal properties which will keep your water hot for your whole bath. Unless you spend a few hours soaking! In terms of budget; the April Skipton comes in at £528.
With its unique and mesmerising shape, the Quebec bath is designed to be fitted into a corner of the bathroom. Its offset style means that the bath is handed, left and right, designed to fit with all bathrooms’ designs and layouts. It’s smooth almost waved look gives the whole bathroom a fluid look. Another advantage of the Quebec is its space saving nature, ideal for use with an over the bath shower and it fits neatly into the corner. As well as being the most cost effective bath on our list at just £314.
Last on our list; the April Cayton is a stylish modern freestander. However, this thin rimmed bath is design to only work with a freestanding tap. This allows you to give you bathroom a more contemporary or classic design stamp. As with all freestanding baths the Cayton can be positioned anywhere in your bathroom and at any angle. Its curved design creates a beautiful flow wherever the bath is placed. This stunning bath is also available in two sizes so even if your bathroom is on the small side you can still make a big statement. The 1500 x 700mm comes in at £767 and the larger 1800 x 840mm is £852.
So there we have it! Our list of baths guaranteed to make a statement in any bathroom without breaking the entire remodel budget. Which is your favourite?
