Despite modern bathroom design ideas frequently leaving out a bath, instead preferring a large walk-in shower enclosure or wetroom - there is still a place for a centrepiece bath in a modern luxury bathroom.

What are the styles of baths?

There are a large variety of bath styles to suit nearly any bathroom design idea. If you're looking for a space-saving design, you may want to look at a shower bath, or if you're looking for the ultimate luxury spa experience at home, you will want to go for a whirlpool bath. This guide will break down every popular style of bath and the kinds of bathrooms it will be a good fit for. If you see any styles you like, don't forget to check out our bath brochures to get a fantastic deal!

Free Standing Baths

The luxury choice for a large luxury bathroom. Their main feature is as per their name, they don't connect to any walls or have any supports - they stand alone and often act as the centrepiece of the bathroom when they are featured. Whatever style your bathroom is, we can source freestanding baths in both contemporary, modern and traditional styles. The one in the photo is our Lynton range, available at a great price in our bathrooms!

Claw Foot Free Standing Baths

Often associated with traditional bathrooms, claw foot freestanding baths have ornate "claw foot" supports at the bottom of the bath to elevate it off the floor and give it a distinctive look. The style has roots in the 18th century when it was first popularised, making it a perfect fit for classic and traditional themed bathrooms. Often, claw foot bath designs feature a rolled top, giving it a smooth appearance, often coupled with higher sidewalls compared to more modern designs. Pictured here is our Sidmouth range, which is exclusive to us!

Pedestal Free Standing Baths

Bathtubs with pedestals are a variation of the traditional freestanding clawfoot design. Instead of feet, pedestal bathtubs are supported by a pedestal that raises the tub off the ground, giving it a timeless look. This type of design offers the same classic charm as a clawfoot tub, but with a different approach to supporting that makes it easier to clean and presents a more modern look. The one featured here is from our Tiverton range!

Slipper Free Standing Baths

Slipper tubs are a popular option for those who want to add a touch of luxury to their bathroom. These tubs are available in a variety of styles, including clawfoot, pedestal, and more modern designs. A slipper tub is characterized by a raised end, which allows you to recline and relax in comfort. Dual-ended slipper baths are also an option, with the rise at both ends of the tub, perfect for romantic evenings. Whether you prefer a traditional or a more contemporary look, a slipper tub is a great way to elevate your bathroom and create a relaxing oasis in your home. The one featured here is our Soaker range.

Modern Free Standing Baths

For a more contemporary bathroom design, a modern freestanding bathtub may be the perfect centrepiece. These baths come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and designs, and are known for their sleek, clean lines and modern aesthetic. Whether you prefer a more traditional oval shape or a more unique, asymmetrical design, a modern freestanding bath can add a touch of elegance and sophistication to your bathroom. The one featured here is our stunning Matrix range.

Shower Baths

Shower baths are a great option for small spaces, as they combine the benefits of a bath and a shower in one compact design. These baths come in a variety of shapes and sizes and feature a wider showering end, allowing you to enjoy the benefits of both a bath and a shower without sacrificing space. If you're torn between choosing a bath and a shower, a shower bath may be the perfect solution for you. Not only does it provide the best of both worlds, but it also adds a touch of style and functionality to your bathroom. The range showcased here is from our Ashwater range of super-strong acrylic baths.

Whirlpool Baths

If you want to indulge in a luxurious spa experience at home, a whirlpool or jacuzzi bath is the perfect solution. These baths are equipped with several massaging jets that can help to soothe tired muscles and provide a relaxing, rejuvenating experience. We have a large range of SimpliAir, Revive Whirlpool and AirSpa baths so you can enjoy the benefits of a jacuzzi no matter what type of bathtub you choose!
