Room of the Week – bathroom with statement bath

May 25, 2011

This weeks Room of the Week is a bathroom with a statement bath.  From the House to Home galleries this room provides the ultimate bathing experience with a large bath and a walk in shower.

If you have the room to create a large bathroom (and your floors can hold it) adding a standalone bath is a great feature.  The bath above is from the Limestone Gallery, and is a modern example of the traditional rolltop bath. 

 The bath shown below is from StoneKast, and would be a good option to provide a very contemporary standalone bath.  These baths are created using a mixture of limestone and a resin compound.  This process allows the creation of a bath with a smaller profile and also one that weighs less than other standalone baths.

Choosing to create a wet room shower area is a great choice to enhance the feeling of openness in a bathroom but many people have concerns that the bathroom will leak.  Wedi manufactures a building board that helps to ensure a water tight bathroom.  It’s properties include moisture-protection to heat insulation, and it also sells purpose made boards for the shower area as shown below.

Although a wet room shower area can be open to the rest of the bathroom, practically it is often better to include a shower screen or enclosure.  Bette have a very good selection that can cater for most bathroom shapes, try to choose an enclosure with minimal framing.

Choose your bathroom fittings carefully, this is the room we often rush through in the morning but remember it should also be enjoyed and can be a perfect place to relax after a busy day.

    these are fabulous bathrooms but so large. Ours is undergoing a revamp soon but is tiny by comparison. Maybe when I retire I’ll have a fabulously large bathroom …..
