How to choose a stone bath?

The right bath can really make or break a bathroom. You should find yourself wanting to spend time relaxing, soaking in your own space as you unwind after the day. If your bath is looking a little lacklustre, or you’re planning on a full bathroom revamp – it’s time to start thinking about a stone bath.

Not only are stone baths exceptionally stylish, but they also offer a range of benefits for the home. The unique material retains heat longer than a standard tub, they’re also incredibly easy to care for – just take a look at our caring for a stone bath blog for our top tips.

Adding a stone bath to your space will instantly give it that effortless ‘hotel-luxe’ style that we all know and love. With a minimalist design, a wide range of styles and shapes to choose from and a selection of fixtures and fittings to make it your own, let’s take a look at how to find your perfect stone bath.

Stone Bath Shape & Size

Adding a freestanding bath to your bathroom is a great way to create a stunning design feature, but what if you only have limited space? Not everyone has large bathrooms, which is why when choosing your stone bath, you should look for designs that complement the space you have.

A classic oval tub is ideal for larger spaces and can form the central theme of your bathroom decor. If space is limited, why not look for a freestanding square stone bath that can fit snugly in the corner? This way, you’re maximising the floor space you have, without compromising on the style or quality of the tub. The Consero square bath is a great choice for those looking for a freestanding square stone bath.

Another great space-saving bath design is the ‘back to wall’ stone baths that are designed to sit flush against the wall, while still offering the classic oval shape. Our Marni back to wall stone bath is one of our most popular designs, offering the impressive look of a freestanding bath with the convenience of a wall supported tub.

If you really want to make the most of the space in your bathroom, why not consider looking at a bespoke bath? By creating a bath that is designed specifically for your space, you can ensure you get the most out of your bathroom decor plans.

Stone Bath Fittings & Functions

The next step is to think about what you need your bath for. Obviously, we all enjoy a luxurious soak, but what fittings will you need to ensure it’s practical as well as stylish? The tap choices really make all the difference and before we get into the different finishes you can choose, we’re going to look at the type of bath taps available.

If you have a separate shower in the home, an additional handheld shower may not be a requirement, but sometimes it’s helpful to have a showerhead on hand to rinse hair and to help clean the bath after use. Our wall-mounted bath taps with handheld showers offer style and function, sitting discreetly on the wall instead of intrusively taking over the bath space. Users can enjoy the benefits of a mixer tap and a handheld shower, perfect if you’re looking to save space and time.

If you already have a shower, a simple valve and spout set is suitable for your new bath. Available in both wall-mounted and deck-mounted styles, you can choose the style that suits your space.

Why not pair your freestanding bath with a freestanding tap for the ultimate in bathroom luxury? A freestanding model with mixer tap and handheld shower offers a contemporary alternative to standard taps, perfect if you’re going for an industrial or minimalist theme.

You’ve picked your bath, you know exactly what taps you want to go with it – now it’s time to start thinking about what decor style you’re looking to create.
